Default Re: Dang - I let the smoke out

I emailed them and got some great info, on their last long weekend (Memorial Day), no less.
I think he (Randy) works from a Verizon Blackberry and is on call 7 X 24.
Could the current (no pun intended) inverter(s) situation be a factor in the
recent desire by your DW for another B?

I don't think so.

It's more to do with the ability to take a B just about anywhere and fuel costs - the C only gets 8mpg. We'd take more trips in a B for sure.

Re: Best Converter - Randy sure is accessible. They gave me his phone number on the road and he answered right away.

He's pretty good (Randy). I decided to see if I could get a manual for the converter/charger
in my '02 190P. I thought I might need one, as the van is older now, and it does get a lot of
use in our van. Just for initial troubleshooting, if there was ever a problem.
I gave him the part number and manufacturer from my RT owner's manual parts list.
He questioned the manufacturer, based on his experience, so I went out and and a look.
He was right, the manual said it was an Elixir CS4500, but the casing/front panel said
Centurion3000 like he said it might be. Had all the parts in stock, too.
I suspect you're in good hands.

I received the PD9260 from Best Converter. It took about 10 days to get to Canada via regular mail, not bad.

It is the same size as the PD9160 that needed to be replaced. Even the mounting holes lined up exactly so it was the easiest fix I ever had to do.

The PD9260 is a good upgrade. It is a 3 stage charger. My batteries should be happy now.
