rv power center

This RV power control center combines an AC/DC panel with a multifunction converter charger. Creating easy access to your electrical connections, this all-in-one breaker box distributes AC and DC loads to your RV and charges your batteries while connected to shore power. It's compatible with lithium and lead acid batteries.


AC/DC Electrical Distribution

internal view

The panel supplies AC and DC distribution to your RV's electrical system. The AC section includes space for up to 6 breakers rated for 240V at 50 amps. This lets you have up to 12 branch circuits when you use tandem breakers. The DC section has 18 branch fuse holders capable of using (4) 30 amp and (14) 20 amp fuses. Also, this section has lever lock connectors to make wiring faster and more secure. Simply open the lever, insert the wire, and close. You will need to purchase AC breakers and DC fuses separately to complete the installation.


inside cover

Once all of your connections are made, the breakers and fuses are easily accessible by opening the door on the front of the box. The door also includes a blank label to list all of the connections.


Multifunctional Converter Charger

switch

The integrated converter charger changes AC shore power into DC power to charge your battery bank. It includes an output mode switch that lets you choose either lithium or lead acid batteries. No matter what type of battery is installed in your RV, you'll always have the most efficient charging profile. If your RV already has a stock converter charger, it will need to be removed to ensure this unit operates properly.


Charging Profile Designed for Lithium Batteries

In lithium mode, the unit uses a higher output voltage, which provides a fast, complete charge. It also extends battery life since it utilizes the appropriate charging profile. Additionally, this mode is compatible with your battery's internal Battery Management System (BMS), which helps manage the charge cycle by monitoring the battery state and balancing cell voltage.


Charge Wizard for Lead Acid Batteries

In lead acid mode, the Charge Wizard automatically switches voltages while your lead acid battery bank charges. This accelerates the charge but also helps extend battery life by adjusting the voltage during the different modes. This function 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 fans

The system includes a number of safety features. It has 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. The built-in cooling fan also removes excess heat from the unit. The fan speed is proportional to the internal temperature of the converter, so when the power demand is low, the fan will operate quietly.

No problems, would highly recommend yall for products and services. Outstanding customer service.

Ours didn’t even come with the door cover. Just an open unit full of wires. We even paid an extra $xx for two day delivery and needed this ASAP!
Now what?



by:

Excellent charger. Easy to install and works great.



by:

Easy to install. Works as advertised. We built our own 28ft toy hauler and traveled in it for about 20 days over 3 separate trips in 2022. So far so good!



by:

Very good system no problems worked out very well



by:

I purchased this unit as a backup incase my original one had problems after I changed my AGM batteries for my new Lithiums. So far the original unit is doing well, but I am glad to have this one in these times of shortages. The part that really concerns me was that it was the only thing in the box that traveled with UPS for four days. No packaging material was securing the plastic unit inside, nothing to keep it from bouncing around inside. Thankfully it arrived without damage, I am surprised.



by:

First one ordered was destroyed by UPS. Sent the folks an email with pictures and returned the broke one. I'm sure after they went through sending a claim to UPS they eventually got another out to me.



by:

This is a fantastic piece. I had ordered another one from ebay that was less money but the saying "you get what you pay for" definetly applies here. The quality of the connections inside this are far superior. Really couldn't be happier.

Works Great

etrailer should take some lessons from Amazon. When multiple products are sent to a distributor in a large box or pallet, the individual items should then be shipped for an order in a secure package. etrailer simply slapped a label on the manufacturer’s flimsy carton and tossed it to USPS who succeeded it breaking the single stran of tape around the box. When I received the package, the box was totally opened on one end and the inverter mounting tab was bent. Not the delivery I would expect for a $600+ item.



by:

We utilized the Progressive Dynamics Inteli-Power RV Converter and lithium Battery Charger as part of our lead acid to Lithium upgrade for our Aliner RV. We had several manufacturers to choose from but are very pleased with our decision to go with this product. It’s performance remains steadfast after the first year in service, its quiet, efficient, reliable and perhaps best of all MADE IN AMERICA! The multi stage smart charging g work flawlessly with our Lithium battery system. 100% recommendations from this satisfied us timer!



by:

I installed this in my camp with 400 watts of solar an a LFP04 battery with a generator hookup. I use the lithium charge profile and it works great. It runs my 12v rv refrigerator with no issue.
