converter charger

This smart converter charger converts AC shore power into DC power and uses the Charge Wizard multistage charging system to charge your battery bank. If your RV already has a stock converter charger, it will need to be removed to ensure this unit operates properly.


Charge Wizard Operation

Using the built-in Charge Wizard, the converter charger automatically switches voltages while the battery bank charges. This accelerates the charge, but also helps extend battery life by adjusting the voltage during the different modes. This charger is compatible with flooded lead acid, AGM, and gel batteries.


Charging Modes

  1. Boost: This mode charges at the full rated load for a quicker recharge time. This is where most of the charging happens. It charges the battery up to 90% of the full capacity.
  2. Normal: This mode provides controlled voltage to ensure a full charge. Once the battery begins to reach capacity, the normal state will kick in and reduce the voltage to safely complete the charge.
  3. Storage: Once the battery reaches full charge and remains unused for 30 hours, this mode maintains a lower voltage to compensate for self-discharge. This reduces battery stress and minimizes gassing and water loss.
  4. Equalization: This mode activates to prevent stratification and sulfate buildup during extended storage cycles. These two issues can damage a battery by causing the accumulation of acid at the bottom of the battery and hardened sulfate crystals on the battery plates. This mode is especially helpful when your battery is going unused during storage.

Safety Features

cooling fan

The system includes a number of safety features. It has a reverse polarity protection that will protect the converter if the battery is hooked up incorrectly. Additionally, the unit includes protection for overvoltage, undervoltage, and overcurrent, which can damage your equipment, as well as the converter. It also has GFCI protection that shuts off power when there is a current imbalance. The built-in cooling fan also removes excess heat from the unit. The fan speed is proportional to the internal temperature on the converter, so when the power demand is low, the fan will operate quietly.


Available Converter Status Remote Pendant for Easy Monitoring and Control

converter status remote pendant

The Converter Status Remote Pendant (sold separately) monitors the converter's charging status. It also allows you to manually override the charge process to verify the unit is operating properly. The pendant uses a flashing green LED to indicate what charging mode is active. It easily connects to the converter's accessory port with the attached cable.


How It Installs

The converter mounts horizontally inside your RV in a dry location with ventilation. However, as long as the unit has sufficient ventilation, it can also be mounted vertically. The mounting hardware is not included.


terminals and plug

The DC output terminals wire to the battery bank. The AC in cord plugs into a 120V 3-wire grounded source.

I've had this converter installed for about a year, it has performed flawlessly. All my battery issues went away, and haven't had to work on anything since. I installed a smaller unit on my parents RV also, they have had the same great results

Ordered the converter, was delivered in 4 days.Installed in less than 1/2 hour. The old unit was 17 years plus in age,started to give lower volts than normal so I changed it out with the new one and everything is back to normal. Good product.


Comments
After one year the converter is still working as normal. Good product. Would buy again.

  • RV Power Control Panel Conversion With Progessive Dynamics Charger
    I contacted Progressive Dynamics and it is possible to plug the Progessive converters directly into the existing power control panel on the Forest River however the Progressive Dynamics Inteli-Power RV Converter and Smart Battery Charger part # PD9270 is 70 amps so you would want to replace it with a 60 amp.

  • Is a New Converter Needed When Switching To Lithium Ion Batteries
    In order to effectively charge lithium ion batteries you will need a converter designed specially for this purpose as the standard lead acid converter you have now will not work well. For this, we have a few options which will be roughly based on the amp hour capacity of the battery bank. The Lion Energy Safari 1300 Battery is 12 volt with a 105 amp hour capacity. If you were only using only one then you would go with a 60 amp converter part # PD9160ALV but if you were using two (wired...
