Converter replacement help

I'm pretty sure my converter has gone out in my 2018 Greyhawk 30X. I know next to nothing about electronics, but have watched enough YouTube videos that I feel confident enough that I can replace it myself. But, I would like to know some suggestions on what to replace the stock converter with. Looking at all of the different choices on Amazon is daunting. I'm currently considering this one (WFCO WF-8955-AD-MBA), but not even 100% sure if it's compatible with what I have now. Any advice would be appreciated.

First off you should see what capacity your old one had. If there is no indication, I personally recommend about a 60 amp capacity. Being that you are a novice I would recommend a sealed unit such as the Progressive Dynamics PD9260CV which is a very nice multi-stage intelligent converter. That is the one that came in my 2017 Greyhawk.

You would be able to install this converter yourself as it just plugs into 120 volts on the input side and you connect6 the positive and negative cables to the other side. If your old unit was hardwired you may want to look for the hardwired version or just cut and hardwire the plug-in cable. That would probably void its warranty though.

You definitely want a multi-stage unit and I would also recommend a little voltage display that you can monitor to see what is going on.
