I am finding out that the Todd converter wasn't very good and the company is no longer in business

Here is one option at a good price:

They make a 45 but seem to be out of stock here. Amazon? you can use a 55 in place of your 45 ok.

Instructions for using it here:

Just throwing this out: I thought I read that you had disconnected the batteries, if so are you 100% sure you connected them back up correctly??
In the RV world Black is generally the Plus 12 Line, if you connected things backwards it might explain the burnt smell.

Some older converters had two outputs, One clean power and one dirty,
I would suggest replacing the converter and power distribution panel with a new more efficient one.

Is it possible the red wire you mentioned has become loose in the converter connection? If the red wire is loose and burnt as a result of the loose connection, simply clean the connection, and tighten the connector. This could be a simple problem and it is certainly worth a try before you spend a lot of money on a new converter.

A bad converter would not typically burn the output (red) wire.


Today is my personal best for most consecutive days alive.
