Replace my Charger / converter - advice?

We are on our second standard battery converter charger - both are bad at actually charging the batteries. Has anyone replaced their converter charger? If so advice, installation steps and pictures would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks was looking at these but not sure it is a direct replacement for the unit in our 2016 Jayco Precept.

Would it be better to install one of the surface mount chargers and just bypass the existing one?

Why bother replacing a bad converter with another bad converter. Looking to get a true smart charger/converter.

I would be looking into what the cause of the convertors not charging the house batteries as they should . I have had 2 motorhomes and haven't had problems with either charging the house batteries either when plugged in or when I ran the generator

This is a surface mount. PD9200 Series RV Power Converters
From what I've read Progressive Dynamics is one of the best. I've had 2 WFCO converters die.
I don't understand how you've fried 2 converters in a 2016, sounds like another issue.
I certainly would be scolding my dealer after the second one died!
