Then I would sincerely apologize for misinterpreting your post's intended meaning. And yes, the product from Best Converter is a PD. Much of the manual is identical to the one that is on their...

I never said the extension instructions on the PD website were obsolete. I said the installation manual was out of date.

Wrong. The installation guide you apparently viewed on-line is out of date, PD's fault. The PD4655-MBA no longer requires replacement of the dc distribution board. The remote pendent now allows...

The Progressive Dynamics replacement/upgrade for the WFCO is a PD4655-MBA. While I am not familiar with the 9260C converters, I can say with 100% certainty that the remote that came with my...

Like Tom, I folded up the excess. I agree, it is at least 24" and it may be 30" or 36", but I don't think it was any longer than that.

The lack of light is somewhat of a problem. I ran an extension cord through the compartment storage hatch and plugged a desk lamp into it. That way, I was able to disconnect all power sources yet...

It all makes sense now. The explanation I got several years ago was something to the effect that when the converter is running on 120v, it doesn't allow current from the battery to flow to the 12v...

I would guess that its electronic "brain" knows that it's job is to charge the batteries and keep them charged. As a result, when 120vac is available, it is probably designed to use 120vac as the...

Jim, again I'm not a converter expert, but I believe currently manufactured converters "manage" power and cut power from the batteries into the 12v buss if incoming 120 ac power is "sensed." Once...

My Lifeline AGM batteries came with instructions that state that under certain circumstances, equalization should be carried out, and they recommend 8 hours at 15.5 volts.

Perhaps flickering was...

Mike,

Equalization mode would result in "boiling off" some hydrogen, but on the solar controller, it would only happen when the sun is shining. 14 out of 15 false alarms with my propane alarm would occur...

Yes, I had a hard time swallowing the cost but I was sick and tired, emphasis on tired, of the propane alarm going off in the middle of the night. The sad thing is, I know there are others with...

I've not used the manual override. I believe the PD charges up my batteries faster than the WFCO and the lights no longer flicker. Unless you are picky about that stuff and don't mind spending $200...
