converter upgrade

hi everyone I have a 1977 prowler travel trailer, with a powertron converter. I am looking to upgrade it to a new one but not sure what to get to replace it .
Thanks in advance for anyone's help.

To make this decision, you need to consider:

- are you also replacing the power distribution panel (110 vac breaker panel and 12 vdc fuse panel), dimensions
- your dc amperage is 40 amps; do you want to increase it?
- your ac amperage is not shown; probably should upgrade to 30 amps or 50 amps if not already there; add a 30 or 50 amp shore power inlet connector if not already added; upgrade the wiring between the power distribution panel and the shore power inlet
- what type of battery charger is needed

Progressive Dynamics is a good solid brand and makes a wide range of deck mount converters, power distributions panels and combined units.
