Are converters interchangeable

2013 Aspen Trail 3100
Friend of mine plugged it into a 220v outlet and fried the converter main board (hopefully thats all)

Found a replacement here:
https://www.trekwood.com/products/93...plete-8955-ANP

But I don't want to spend that kind of money if I don't have to. I don't know much about these, but looking at it I'm thinking other, cheaper, but not exact matches would work.

Do I need this exact converter or will a cheaper used or aftermarket converter with the same inputs and outputs work?

Wow, thatís expensive for that board. I would think that you would be able to change the converter for one that has the same specs. I think I would pick a known brand since some of the stuff from overseas can be a fire hazard.

Replace a WFCO when the opportunity comes up.

WFCO makes a full line of converters for RV's. They make replacement charger boards for them. Latest models have Lithium battery profiles. Check with the support desk at WFCO to find the latest drop in replacement.
