Replacement for a Schumacher SARVC55
« on: February 15, 2013, 11:14:13 AM »
I have a 2012 Itasca Sunova 30A. It has a Schumacher SARVC55 converter/charger unit. I have two pages in my information manual which are of no value. I have called Schumacher about get a complete manual. They just sent me the same two pages. The unit will boil the water down in the batteries, so it is a single stage unit. I would like to replace it with a 3 stage unit. Can anyone of you all help me with this problem?

Thanks, Ronald

This may help a bit.  Not much info but good luck with your problem.

You the same "Ron" from last April?  If so, no answer yet?   :o

I replaced mine with a Progressive Dynamics # PD9260 with a charge wizard. Works perfect and a very easy retrofit.

We replaced ours with a Xantrex PROsine™ 2. Couldn't be happier with the pure sine wave inverter and 100 amp charger.

I emailed Winnebago about my Schumacher converter/charger. They would not suggest a replacement. I can't get anythingout of Schumacher company. I am looking at the Progressive Dynamics PD9260C unit with charge wizard. I measured the area where the Schumacher unit is located and the PD9260C will fit. I know I am going to a 60 amp unit to replace my 55 amp. But I want the 3-stage unit over the 1-stage unit. Anyone out there tried this replacement and/or have a problem with the change?

Thanks Ron

Should be no problem at all if it physically fits.

I upgrade my 3645 converter to a 9260 with the dongel a few weeks ago. It took a couple days to get my batteries up to full charge. I haven't used the coach, but have checked it several times and every time I look at it, it's in float mode. Haven't had to add any water yet. I bought mine off of E-bay for $134.00 and $12.00 for the dongel.

Gary I measured the location and it looks like it will fit. I am tired of the batteries boiling out. I am also going to get the converter status remote pendant. I think that would be a big help since the unit is behind a wood panel. Thanks for the feedback.
