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.


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

Today we're going to take a look at the Progressive Dynamics PD9100 Series 12 Volt, 30 Amp INTELI-POWER Converter. Now this power converter will deliver DC power to your recreational vehicles 12 Volt lighting and appliance circuits.It will offer built-in features to ensure longterm reliability. It does have electronic current limiting, it does offer reverse battery protection, high voltage and low voltage protection which will prevent damage from AC input voltage fluctuations. Automatic thermal protection which will product damage do to excessive heat and variable speed intelligent cooling fan on this side which will only operate under different conditions.It has a built in TCMS connector which is a Total Charge Management System, this will allow easy addition of the Charge Wizard. That Charge Wizard we do sell separately on our website, it's part number PD9105. Just to give you an idea, this is the Charge Wizard right here.

It has a plug here that will plug right into that connection right over here.This Charge Wizard is what will turn this 9100 Series converter into an automatic 12 volt charge system. It's a microprocessor controller that will constantly monitor the RV battery voltage to determine if the batter requires a quick recharge, is fully charged and being used, or is fully charge and in storage. The Charge Wizard selects one of the three charging voltages and one of the four operating modes to properly recharge or maintain the battery.This converter is UL listed, it is assembled in the USA. Specs on this the input voltage is 105 to 130 volts AC. Wattage is 500 watts.

Output voltage 13.6 volts DC. Power draws 30 amps.A few dimensions on this, over all width on it from this side to this side, everything, you'd be looking right at 8 1/4 inches long, width on it is going to be probably about 7 1/4 inches wide and the total depth on this is going to be right at 4 11/16th deep. The cord, the plug in cord is 30 inches long. The weight of this converter is about four pounds.That should do it for the review on the Progressive Dynamics PD9100 Series 12 Volt, 30 Amp INTELI-POWER Converter.

Ask the Experts about this Progressive Dynamics RV Converters

  • Is the PD9105 Charge Wizard Needed With RV Converter/Battery Charger
    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...

  • Replacement for Magnetek 30 Amp Convertor
    The Model 80 refers to the ac/dc distribution panel not the converter but what this does tell me is that you have a standalone converter. Therefore, if the converter is indeed 30 amps then the Progressive Dynamics Inteli-Power RV Converter and Battery Charger part # PD9130 will work wonderfully as a replacement.

  • 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.

  • Progressive Dynamics Converter Charger for Lead Acid/AGM Batteries
    Lithium battery chargers are not compatible with lead acid batteries so if that is what you have then you need the Converter/Charger # PD9130 which is the equivalent of the 30 Amp Lithium option # PD9130LV that you referenced. You might also be interested in the Charge Wizard # PD9105 which helps to extend your battery life by automatically switching the charging stage based off of how charged your battery currently is. Review videos have been linked for you to reference as well.
