you can get the pd 60 amp version as well, sometimes these fit better then the 945 since they are slimmer

pd9260

45 to 60 amps is fine. I would replace with same rating.

PD92xx or PD92xx-14.8

OP:
Haven't seen a reply as to what converter you now have. I suggested the PD9245, but if you have a converter that is mounted below the breakers and fuse panel, I would have to rethink replacement.

Another vote for the 60A PDI with Charge Wizzard.

OK just an interim report: It is an Progressive Dynamics Intell-Power, 9200 I assume. Not sure yet what model it is, I'll have to unbox the boroscope I just got and figure out how to work it with my phone. It has 3 X 25 AMP fuses, all good.

Looks like this

Thanks to everyone for all the posts.

I'd double-check the connections before assuming it's bad. If it is malfunctioning, giving Progresive Dynamics a call in regards to repair/service might be a fruitful exercise; they have better than average support, from what I understand.

One rather obvious thing to check is to make sure the outlet it's plugged into is receiving 120V power.

I would test the fuses, do not go by looks.
PD 9200 series is still my choice.
