On my 1992 Roadtrek 210 the heater is mounted under the passenger side dinette seat. The converter is a Magnetek 6300B and is nearly opposite of the heater on the drivers side couch seat. When I make the dinette into a bed the heat blows nearly directly across the aisle and make the metal housing on the converter pretty hot. Is this a problem. The Roadtrek has been around a while so I guess it hasn't hurt it so far. But what are the thoughts on this? Thanks.
Our 1996 190 Versatile has the same configuration, and we haven't noticed any problems. We did however replace the Magnetek converter as we found that this old single-stage technology was detrimental to the house battery life. The replacement is a Progressive Dynamics 45 A unit with the "charge wizard". You might be mistaken that the heat you feel on the metal housing of your Magnetek is coming from the furnace; it's more likely being generated within the converter itself.
