MagneTek 6620

I have a MagnaTek 6620 power converter that I've salvaged from an old Coleman pop-up camper. It is mid 1990's vintage. Any reason why I shouldn't use this in my new build? Any new technology that would make buying a new converter worthwhile? Any issues using it with an AGM battery?

Thanks in advance for all of your sage advice.

Are you going to have a 12 volt battery? Yes- Check to see if it also has the battery charger. Some older popups didn't have that feature.
If it doesn't and you use it, you can get a battery tender.
