    Load Center and Converter

    We have been camping in a TT - 2005 - 2011, a Class C and then a Class A from 2011 to just last week when we traded in our Class A for a 260RD 5th wheel. Reading the pile of manuals a number of things are mentioned but no location is given. Can someone tell me where the Load Center and the Converter are located? I have looked in the passthrough {both sides} and in the front compartment. Older and maybe blind but I can't find them. Please Help

    Welcome to the forum!

    I'm not sure what the Load Center is... unless that's the breaker box located under the foldout shelf near the sink. I know the converter is located behind the pass-through wall under/near the backside of the steps. You need to remove the screws holding the wall up to access the converter.

    I hope this helps.

    Did you ever determine how to find the converter? My 2021 260RD has the breaker box without the converter below it, so I assume but am not sure the converter is somewhere behind it. No obvious way on how to access that. Any help appreciated as I want to add Lithium batteries with solar and move to an inverter/converter/charger (Victron Multiplus II) but this 5th wheel is so buttoned up it is hard to find things.

    On the 2022 model the converter is behind the rear pass through wall. Just a couple of screws to remove the wall and the converter should be installed on the floor just to the left of the water pump. I just realized that means better keep our fingers crossed the pump never springs a leak and sprays the converter. With the wall out you get to inspect a lot of other stuff to make sure nothing is wrong.

    Thanks. After cleaning out my pass through I removed the wall, and there was the converter and many other items. It must be a lot easier to have a vanity wall there than to cleanly run the wires and plumbing :-) . I agree that having the plumbing right next to the converter is a bad idea. I'll be installing an Victron inverter/converter/charger in my unit, so the existing converter will just be disabled. Thanks for the reply!

    @woodman I plan to replace that rear wall with some sort of clear plastic product so it makes it easier to see if there's a problem.
