That's correct for a routine conversion, but the OP wants to convert an RMD, which is not allowed.

I overlooked that he wanted to convert the RMD. I would like to do that too, but I already knew that that was not allowed.

What I now do is convert from IRA to Roth IRA as much as I can each year, consistent with tax considerations, to lower the amount of the RMD for the next year.
