It is possible that the water would have cooled the converter at a rapid rate and contributed to the current failure. Another factor could be the size of the converters. The newer converters appear to be large enough to get the job done however they are beginning to display a short life span in comparison to earlier designs.
You may need to check with MB on the warranty status. They utilize certain information which protects them from fraudulent claims due to flooding and or major accidents.
