Converter died

Unread postby Big Rig Guy on Tue Jan 06, 2009 3:48 pm

Last month one of my Iota 45 amp converters bit the dust and last weekend the other one went too. So I need to replace them with something better, I got looking around the net and found a Xantrex converter, 80 amp output and was wondering if anyone here has any experience with Xantrex converters?????????

I am getting by right now with my truck battery charger out of my shop, it has a timer on it and I set it for a 90 minute charge so to not fry my batteries.

I have had fantastic luck with the Progressive Dynamics Converters. Either a 9100 series with a charge wizard, or a 9200 series with the charge wizard built in. is where I have bought mine from in the past.
