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.

Video Transcript for Progressive Dynamics RV Converters - - PD9145A Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Progressive Dynamics PD-9100 Series 12-Volt 45 Amp and INTELI-POWER Converter. Now this power converter will deliver DC power to recreational vehicles 12-Volt lighting and appliance circuits. It does offer built-in features to ensure long-term reliability. It offers electronic current limiting, reverse battery protection, high voltage and low voltage protection to prevent damage from AC input voltage fluctuations. Also offers automatic thermal protection, protects from damage due to excessive heat. And has a variable speed intelligent cooling fan right here, that'll only operate under high heat conditions.Right over here it has a built-in TCMS connector.

That stands for Total Charge Management System, this'll allow easy addition of the Charge Wizard. Now the Charge Wizard we do sell separately on our website, it's Part Number PD-9105. And I happened to pull that just to show you what that is. Basically this Charge Wizard will turn this 9100 Series Converter into an Automatic 12-Volt Charge System. It's a microprocessor controller that constantly monitors the RV battery voltage to determine if the battery requires a quick recharge, is fully charged and being used, or is fully charged 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. And again, we do sell that separately on our website.This converter is UL Listed, it's assembled in the USA. A few specs on it, the input voltage is 105 to 130 Volts AC. Wattage is 725 Watts. Output Voltage is 13.6 Volts DC, and the Power Draw is 45 Amps.

A few dimensions on this, the overall width, I'm going to measure from this end to this end, it's going to be right at eight and quarter inches long. The width on it, is right at seven and a quarter inches wide. And the total depth on this converter unit is four and eleven sixteenths inches deep. The plug in cord is 30 inches long. And the weight of it as about four and a half pounds.But that should do it for the review on the Progressive Dynamics PD-9100 Series 12-Volt 45 Amp INTELI-POWER Converter..

Received the PD9145A and installed it with no problem.. checked to see if it was working and it is changing the batteries so far so good.. the small size is a great feature being it was used in a small compartment in my motor home.. I want to thank everyone at Etrailer for helping me decide on this type of CHARGER.

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.

Install instructions were easy to follow. Worked perfectly for my airstream renovation. Small size and ability to mount sideways allowed me to put under my front bench seat and not take up valuable closet space.

Review from a similar Inteli-Power in RV Converters


This power center was easy to install and seems to be working well. However, the wiring diagram on the back of it is small and difficult to read. Maybe I am missing it, but there does not seem to be a buss to connect negative 12v wires to. I think I will have to purchase one separately and install it behind the cabinet the power center is attached to.


Comments
Thank you for your review. I have some installation instructions that should help you. Please note that troubleshooting this electrical unit should be done by a professional. https:www.progressivedyn.comwp-contentuploads201705PD4045-TROUBLESHOOTING.pdf https:www.progressivedyn.comwp-contentuploadsSupportmanuals110145-English.pdf

Review from a similar Inteli-Power in RV Converters


Cooked my OEM converter on my new 5er due to home electrical install polarity error. Fixed the pedestal but converter is done. Researched replacement models and chose the PD9260C due to good reviews, the 3 prong corded plug (I'm not ready for direct panel wiring yet) and the ability to upgrade to AGM batteries. Received in 3 days. Pros: Very easy to install - basically a drop in replacement. No issues, only extras needed was an 8 ga copper ground jumper wire and oversized wire nut. Started up immediately, battery showing 13.49VDC consistently. Cons: 1) Not packed very well, minimal amount of crumpled paper as padding, no internal packaging box. Shipped by USPS. I have chronic issues with USPS and packages as they refuse to leave at door and (literally) drop them on the ground in front of my mailbox. I was waiting for a quick delivery and got to it right away but a bottom attachment flange was dented - fixed with my Leatherman. I hate USPS. 2) Unit shipped bare - no internal box, no papers included with unit. Is it truly new? Returned and refurbished? Who knows. 3) The link to the installation manual on the product page (not that you need one) has consistently returned a 404 error - you'd think they'd monitor broken links better.


Comments
Thank you for your review and I apologize about the annoying details in your order. Customer Service will be reaching out about the dented flange. As for the instruction link, sometimes the manufacturer changes something on their website without letting us know and the link becomes broken. It is showing up now: https:www.progressivedyn.comwp-contentuploads201705109821F-english.pdf

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.

I installed the unit to charge my 24v forklift battery pack. It's seems to be working great. I do wish there were LED lights to indicate which of the 4 operating modees it is in.

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.

Ask the Experts about this Progressive Dynamics RV Converters

  • Replacement Converter Comparable to PD9140A
    To replace the discontinued PD9140A 40 amp converter, I recommend going with the very similar 45 amp converter: - Progressive Dynamics Inteli-Power RV Converter and Battery Charger - 12V - 45 Amps # PD9145A This is a similar unit but with a 610 watt power output and 45 amp output compared to the 540 watt and 40 amp output of the PD9140A. The # PD9145A is 8-1/4" long x 7-1/4" wide x 4-11/16" deep so it is not quite as long or wide, but is a little deeper than the 9-1/8" long x 7-3/8"...

  • RV Converter Replacement for Magnatek Model 7345
    The Replacement Converter for Parallax/Magnetek or WFCO RV Power Centers - 45 Amp # PD4645V is the direct replacement for your Magnatek 7345 model. If you want to replace the converter and the circuit breaker box then the Progressive Dynamics Mighty Mini AC/DC Panel and Converter Charger - 45 Amp # PD4045KA is also a compatible replacement. The PD9145A you referenced is not a direct replacement option for you.

    To replace your 9100 Series 40 amp converter, I recommend going with the Progressive Dynamics Inteli-Power RV Converter and Battery Charger - 12V - 45 Amps # PD9145A. This will work well as a replacement, and the only other thing I recommend, is a Charge Wizard because it provides a quicker, more efficient charge for your batteries, and also prevents them from overcharging. The correct part for that is the Charge Wizard for Progressive Dynamics Inteli-Power PD9100 Series Converters #...
