Bob doesn't like it much, but if all you are looking for is DC power, Progressive Dynamics makes the PD4655, PD4645, and PD4635. These are meant as upgrades to other manufactures converters / battery chargers.
4600 Series Upgrade or Replacement Power Converters from Progressive Dynamics

This is a thread where someone installed one in a Trillium 4500. If my old converter dies, I will probably put one of these in.
Trillium 4500 replacement converter?

It should be noted that this is a more expensive option then the 4045 advocated by Bob.

Hey Bob, What does the converter / charger in the PD4045 look like? Could you strip it down to a PD4645?

Question of the first: I have also installed the PD stand alone converter/smart chargers where the customer wanted to keep their existing panel. It usually fits inside the space opened up when the old converter is removed, a converterectomy if you will......

But most of the more mature trailers on here don't have all that much for either ac or dc distribution. One circuit breaker, a handful of inline fuses and a wire loom just isn't much of a start LOL....

Second Question... No, the PD-4045's converter/smart charger is a circuit board and wouldn't do well standing alone.
