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.

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.

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


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.

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


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.

Great product! Much better Battery charging Life cycle than the standard Converter/charger most RV's come with.

Very impressed with the cooling ability, the fan does not cycle as much as I expected - it stays cool. Never had any issue with it in a year of use.

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.

Review from a similar Inteli-Power in RV Converters


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.

  • 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....

  • Can Progressive Dynamics Converter be Power From Generator
    Yes the Progressive Dynamics Inteli-Power RV Converter and Battery Charger - 12V - 30 Amps # PD9130 can be powered with a generator. This is rated for up to 30 amps though and not up to 60 amps. For a similar setup rated for 60 amps would be part # PD9160A.

  • 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.

  • Portable Electric Winch That Can Be Used With A 110V Outlet
    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...

  • 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....

  • Recommendations on RV Converter
    It sounds like what you are looking for is a RV Converter along the lines of what Progressive Dynamics supplies several options in, while not all are specifically 13.8 VDC output, they are within a range of. These specific models listed will charge your lithium battery bank as well. The Progressive Dynamics Mighty Mini AC/DC Panel and Converter/Smart Charger - 60 Amp, # PD4060K, is a great product.

  • Power Adapter for Converting from 110 to 12 Volt to Power Everchill Refrigerator for RVs 324-000119
    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.
