converter charger

This converter charger converts AC shore power into DC power and charges your battery bank. If your RV already has a stock converter charger, it will need to be removed to ensure this unit operates properly.


Charging Operation

During the charging process, the charger senses your battery bank's voltage and decreases the current as it reaches full charge. This decrease helps prevent overcharging, which can damage the battery. It is compatible with flooded lead acid, AGM, and gel batteries.


charge wizard

The available Charge Wizard (sold separately) upgrades the converter charger to automatically switch voltages while the battery bank charges. This accelerates the charge, but also helps extend battery life by adjusting the voltage during the different modes. The Charge Wizard simply connects to the TCMS port on the back of the converter charger.


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.


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

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

This is a nice little unit, My old one exploded a week ago and this unit slipped right into my 30 amp system and is functioning exactly as it should... I live in my travel trailer full time, So this purchase was a must have item. I'm grateful for the the decent unit price, Good quality inverter/charger, and the fast/professional service from etrailer.com. Thanks to etrailer.com for making my choice easy, affordable and convenient. Y'all save the day, I will recommend your company to everyone I know.

Review from a similar Inteli-Power in RV Converters


Works as advertised. I can charge two 100 AH LiFePo-4 batteries with no trouble at all. Just make sure you use decent gauge wire because this charger is a beast! Smaller gauged wire will heat up due to the amount of current this thing delivers. It does constant current charging and then switches to constant voltage to top off the battery. Well worth the money!

Review from a similar Inteli-Power in RV Converters


Worked perfect with my four 100 AH Lithium batteries.... Stock Winnebago charger was a weak 30 amps @ 13.2 V.....this baby delivers 80 amps @ 14.4 V. which reduces generator runtime on cloudy days when the roof solar is not producing. Had to change the 15 amp RV panel breaker to 20 amps...no big deal...I'm happy with this purchase.

Review from a similar Inteli-Power in RV Converters


So far so good! I build my own power center modeled after the ones in RV for our enclosed trailer. Its been working great. I bought fuses at the auto parts store, and bought circuit breakers at home depot no problem. I did contact progressive dynamics because it seems that there are places you can buy these cheap but the serial number is not recognized by progressive dynamics meaning you have no warranty and probably cant return it to those places. But since etrailer was not listed on progressive dynamics website as a retailer, I contacted them, gave them my serial number, and they confirmed that etrialer is a preferred dealer, and my serial number is legit.... I contacted progressive dynamics also during installation, and they were very helpful. I was concerned the the wire coming out of the unit that hooks up to your 12 v batteries was 12AWG. I though that seemed too light a gauge, and should be at least 10AWG maybe 8AWG. Progressive dynamics, technical guy said that they have a special high temp insulation on those wires and they can indeed handle 40 AMPS. He recommended (which looks odd installed) but I ran 8AWG from my battery, and spliced it to the 12AWG wire on progressive dynamics unit. No Complaints so far, its been running great and charging the batteries. No regrets.

The Progressive Dynamic 80 amp lithium charger is a great product. Charges the lithium batteries very fast. Its a simple well built charger converter. I've used it for about 8 months now. I used to own a 40 amp Progressive Dynamic regular battery charger converter on my previous rv. It worked great for the 12 or so years I owned it.

Review from a similar Inteli-Power in RV Converters


This product was recommended by the lifepo4 battery manufacturer to fully charge the 3 batteries I purchased. Installation was pretty simple. Did not have to run larger wiring which was thankful. Simply swap out old converter charger with new one and ready to use. I would highly recommend this product.


Comments
I have had no problems whatsoever. Boondocked for 9 days in Grand Teton National Park last September. Used my generator to freshen up Battle Born lithium batteries and converter charger worked perfectly.

Review from a similar Inteli-Power in RV Converters


I had my son-in-law who is an electrician install the converter. The converter is working good and the battery charge was really good. I believe that the water pump pressure was the best I had in a long time which indicates how well the battery is charged. The reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is that I think that a better manual could of come with the converter. When I connected the battery there was a green flashing light that I didn't know what it meant but after an internet search I found out what it meant. E-trailer was great to deal with, fast service and answered my questions quickly,

Review from a similar Inteli-Power in RV Converters


The service from eTrailer was excellent as always and customer support was very good. I was replacing my brand new WFCO WF-8735 unit because it was not a smart charger - I could not get it to charge my batteries at full speed. The PD4135 is a direct replacement for it and provides better options for charging manually and also has a switch that converts charging for a Li battery. Although the product installed easily, there were a few glitches. One, etrailer did not send a manual with the product, so I had to get it online. Even then, the manual left a lot to be desired. It didn't describe the installation well nor the operation. The PD unit is a bit smaller than the WFCO and therefore the PD cover just barely covered the old screw holes. Also, the WFCO has 7 fuses but are not identical to PD's 7. The PD has 5 branch circuits like the WFCO except it has one extra circuit that can handle up to 30A - that's the second red wire (labeled 002) and the 6th fuse. The 7th fuse is red on both units and is for reverse protection. The 6th fuse on the WFCO is to doubly protect all of the branch circuits and has a metal 30A fuse - that's not in the design of the PD. Operationally, the PD works fine. The switch to convert to Li batteries is TINY and prone to breaking off (my first unit had the the switch in the bottom of the box!) You'll have to scour the PD website to find a picture of the switch since it is not included in the manual. Also, not included anywhere is the need to remove a 4 wire harness when using Li batteries. Also hard to find but on the website is the operation of the push button for manually exiting the Wizard mode and the meaning of the flashing light. Other than those minor issues, the unit is great.

Review from a similar Inteli-Power in RV Converters


This converter was an awesome upgrade to our RV. Our stock converter just didn't have the oomph to get out lithium batteries full. The Progressive Dynamics Inteli-Power RV Converter and Battery Charger - Lithium - 12V - 80 Amp has done the trick. It was a simple upgrade even though it was in a very tight area.

Good converter, good company. Use to charge a lifepo4 battery. Wish there was documentation from the company explaining how exactly the charger charges the batteries; graphs of the rate of charge, voltage, etc over time and over the total charge capacity. But that would be asking a lot. The product is excellent quality.

    Although the # PD9105 Charge Wizard isn't absolutely necessary, it's an inexpensive upgrade that will help keep your expensive batteries in top condition. The wizard does this by automatically monitoring the charge status of your batteries and using whichever mode is most appropriate depending on the current usage of the batteries. There's also a storage mode that keeps the batteries topped off but also prevents sulfate build-up. You can also manually select the charge mode if you wish. In...

  • Recommended 30 Amp Converter for 1998 Towlite Camper
    It sounds like you have a camper that has a 30amp service panel already, so for a new converter you'll want to use the Progressive Dynamics # PD9130 which is a 30amp converter designed to work with lead acid batteries. I do also recommend adding the Charge Wizard for Progressive Dynamics Inteli-Power PD9100 Series Converters # PD9105 which helps extend battery life and quickly charges your RV batteries using automatic multistage charging.

They feel it could overcharge and damage the battery. I did not mention that you already had concerns about your old charger overcharging.

  • On Board Converter To Use with AGM Batteries
    I recommend looking at the Go Power RV Converter and Smart Battery Charger # 34266912 which has a maximum output of 14.4v and is designed to work with AGM batteries. This is the most powerful converter and smart battery charger we have and it is rated much higher than the 13.6v max on the Progressive Dynamics 9100 series converters like the # PD9130. Per the instructions (included) you will need to remove your existing converter, as it is not designed to work on conjunction with that system.
