Default replacing converter in 2006 27 towlite

We are thinking of replacing the old elixer converter with a new one and my question is , is there enough wire behind unit to pull it out far enough to work on back wiring?

Should be enough wire to pull it away from wall. Only one way to find out. Just remove the screws from the front panel and gently pull it forward. Make sure it is not plugged into electrical and a battery cable is disconnected before you do this. Don’t want to risk shorting anything out.

Do you want to replace the whole power center or just the converter? Replacing the converter is a whole lot less work. If you want to just want to replace the converter go to:BestConverter - Converters, Inverters, Electrical Supplies, Electronics Chose a converter of equal amperage. The Boondocker is a popular replacement. DO NOT replace the power center with a WFCO, they are junk.

Whatever you do, take photographs of the wiring hookup before you start taking things apart.

Default Replacing converter

Best converter is a great place to purchase from. Call and speak with the tech before you buy. Have your old model #..Dh had to use additional wire when he installed ours in our 1990 Classic HiLo. He got some wire at the Automotive store. Tech help is available if you encounter problems while installing.
