Question Replaced battery, need to replace Converter

The trailer is a 2005 Jayco Jay Feather 26S LGT

I had problems with the Lead Acid battery, so I replaced it with a Battle Born Batteries LiFePO4 Deep Cycle Battery - 100Ah 12v. A week later the battery died, I keep it plugged into an AC 120v outlet full-time, so was expecting the converter to keep it charged. But about a week later, the battery ended up completely dead. Testing everything I found out that my converter is dead. It had worked previously on/off on the Lead Acid, but I guess part of that battery problem was the converter wasn't working anymore.

Now that I have a LiFePO4 battery I need to get a better converter for the replacement and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions.

ps. I could have just replaced the battery with another Lead Acid, but I wanted to test and check out the Battleborns as I'm planning on ordering more later and going 100% off-grid solar with them. But due to the high cost of the batteries, that's a ways down the road at the moment and I need to get a converter soon.

Not sure of what brand converter you have or it's specs, but usually the converter section is replaceable. Just get a lithium compatible one.

Thanks for the suggestion. I just went onto Battleborns website and found this one which I think should work as the trailer is on a 30amp system.
