Multi-stage Converter/Charger

I need to replace my single stage OEM converter/charger with a multi-stage one. Looks like the PD9260 gets good reviews, but while the PD4655 gets a lot of comments/instructions on installation, I don't see any comments re the PD9260 (I have a 50amp 30' International, so I need the larger PD converter/charger, and I'll be replacing OEM batteries next summer with Trojan 6 volt batteries and the PD9260 provides a higher charge rate). I am curious as to how others addressed the OEM fuse panel, and how you dealt with the requirement for a plug for the PD9260 i.e. did you cut the plug off and wire it directly (voiding the warranty) or install a junction box and duplex).

Thanks for your help.

Functionally the 9260 is exactly the same as the 4655. It's just a deck mount style instead of an upgrade kit like the 4655 that is designed for the 7355/8355 (30 amp service) There is currently no kit for the 5355 that you have (since you said you have 50 amp service, that is likely what you have) so most people upgrading are using the Boondocker 1260 HW since it comes in a hard wire configuration.
