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.

The converter was easy to match up to my old converter. It had all the exact same connections. Getting to the converter however was a bit of a challenge. Once I gained access, it was still in a relatively tight squeeze area but with a little carefulness, I was able to remove one wire at a time and reconnect the new converter. Of course to get to the electrical outlet for the converter I needed to pull out the entire breaker panel so while I was at it, I decided to be sure all the panel lugs were tightened as well. The final step before turning any power on was to reconnect the battery. The entire process took just a little over 30 minutes. Power to the RV was turned on, each circuit tested and voila, the RV is back up again and the battery is charging. Hooray!! It would have been nice if there was an instruction sheet and what tools were needed for the project but I made due.


Comments
The converter is still working just fine and since its beginning to get cold, we are keeping the RV plugged in to shore power and running small electric heaters to keep it above freezing. Sure wish I could figure out how to identify a heater issue now.

The instructions for installing converter was excellent. Every step was clear and as I followed them it was clear what was going on. The total time from installing the unit to completion was about 45 minutes. This also included cleaning battery terminals and dressing all cables.
My thanks to Christian and the staff at etrailer for such good service.




by:

Worked great. Easy swap out. USPS shipping could have been faster, from Missouri to Wisconsin 9 days? Not etrailer's fault. All in all rv batteries being charged by a converter not a battery charger.




by:

The converter/charger arrived two days early and
I saved about $30.00 buying from etrailer.
Check them out. You never know what they will have.

It looks like an exact replacement.

Exactly what I ordered. Fit perfectly and works great. Easy to install. Got the product 2 days faster than expected.

Thanks etrailer.

Yes thank you very much glad you had it in stock..
Great service




by:

Old Progressive Dynamics Intelli-Power 55 amp converter gave up the ghost--after twenty-one trouble free years in my 5th wheel. Why change a good thing, so went with a PD 9160 replacement and gained 5 amps over the old converter. Etrailer shipped the order same day I ordered it, and it arrived on time in great shape.




by:

Easily ordered, quickly delivered, and installed without any issues.
Customer service representative was knowledgeable, helpful, and patient as I was unsure what I needed to order.




by:

I would have liked the expensive electronic part to be in plastic since when it was delivered it was pouring rain and the box was soaked. I hope it works.




by:

Exact duplicate for my RV. Great service by etrailer. Arrived before estimated date. Thanks, Kayla.




by:

Just installed this unit, working as it’s supposed to... installed without smart charge for now, charges at a steady 13.2 with a new battery.. all interior 12 volt lighting is nice and bright.. I bought this brand because it’s American made.... I will update in a year or so

Their customer service is outstanding. We received the inverter 5 days earlier than we were told it would be here. And it works great. Highly recommend them.

  • Battery Type for Progressive Dynamics PD9160A Converter
    The Progressive Dynamics Inteli-Power RV Converter and Battery Charger # PD9160A works with 12 volt flooded lead acid, AGM, and gel batteries. The best option is likely going to be AGM batteries because they have a low self-discharge and are not quite as prone to sulfation, which is a build-up that can lead to battery failures.

  • How To Power AC Appliances In Trailer With No Shore Power
    The Progressive Dynamics Inteli-Power RV Converter and Battery Charger part # PD9160A is a device that takes input from an AC power source like shore power and then uses this to charge DC batteries. The DC batteries would then provide power to 12 volt accessories only. If you have AC 110/120 volt accessories that need power while an AC power source like shore power is not available then you will actually need an inverter such as the Go Power Industrial Pure Sine Wave Inverter part # 34279950....

    If your Parallax is rated for 30 Amps then you need part # PD9130 for a standard battery or part # PD9130LV for a lithium battery.

  • Is the Progressive Dynamics PD9270 Just a Charger or a Charger/Converter
    The Progressive Dynamics Inteli-Power RV Converter and Smart Battery Charger - 12V - 70 Amps # PD9270 is a charger and a converter. I reached out to my contact at Progressive Dynamics and in order to switch from the # PD9160A to the # PD9270 you would need to verify that all of your wiring is capable of handling the additional output. They also told me that your problem is common and comes from the # PD9160A being a single stage charger. It is possible to upgrade your system using the...

  • Can Progressive Dynamics Converter # PD9160A Replace PD9155
    I reached out to my contact at Progressive Dynamics and he said the 60 amp # PD9160A Converter will work just fine to replace your existing PD9155. The slight increase in amperage isn't an issue at all and there aren't any safety concerns. This is going to provide you with a higher 60 amp output, so if a fuse on your current unit is being blown from being overdrawn, or it's simply an internal issue on an old converter, the replacement will work perfectly and will resolve this problem....

  • Replacement Progressive Dynamics Converter PD9160A

    The only difference between the Progressive Dynamics Inteli-Power RV Converter and Battery Charger # PD9160A and the Progressive Dynamics Inteli-Power RV Converter and Smart Battery Charger # PD9260C is the charging cycles. The # PD9160A only has one charging cycle at 13.4 amps, while the # PD9260C has a Charging Wizard with 4 charging cycles to help extend the life of your batteries.

But it is not going to charge your batteries noticeably faster.

    The Everchill Refrigerator for RVs # 324-000119 that you referenced does require 12 volt power to operate so you'd need something like the Progressive Dynamics Inteli-Power RV Converter # PD9160A which would plug into your 110 power outlet and give you 12 volt power for the fridge with more than enough amperage.

    All of the available winches run off of a 12V power source or 120V power source and do not run off 110V. The best way to use a winch is to use a 12V battery but if you do not have a 12V power source then you can use a converter to convert the 110V to 12V, which would then be compatible with an electric 12V winch. I would look into Progressive Dynamics Inteli-Power RV Converter and Battery Charger - 12V - 60 Amps # PD9160A which plugs into a 110V wall outlet and provides terminals to install...

If you don't get any output voltage then you'll want to replace the converter. We have a variety of replacement converters to choose from and since your Progressive Dynamics unit lasted 20 years I'd say stick to that brand.

We unfortunately do not have a simple wiring setup that can achieve this conversion. With that being said, if you are set on the Bulldog Utility Winch # BD54FR, the best option is to use the Progressive Dynamics Inteli-Power RV Converter and Battery Charger - 12V - 60 Amps # PD9160A.
