converter charger

This smart converter charger converts AC shore power into DC power and uses the Charge Wizard multistage charging system to charge your battery bank. If your RV already has a stock converter charger, it will need to be removed to ensure this unit operates properly.


Charge Wizard Operation

Using the built-in Charge Wizard, the converter charger automatically switches voltages while the battery bank charges. This accelerates the charge, but also helps extend battery life by adjusting the voltage during the different modes. This charger is compatible with flooded lead acid, AGM, and gel batteries.


Charging Modes

  1. Boost: This mode charges at the full rated load for a quicker recharge time. This is where most of the charging happens. It charges the battery up to 90% of the full capacity.
  2. Normal: This mode provides controlled voltage to ensure a full charge. Once the battery begins to reach capacity, the normal state will kick in and reduce the voltage to safely complete the charge.
  3. Storage: Once the battery reaches full charge and remains unused for 30 hours, this mode maintains a lower voltage to compensate for self-discharge. This reduces battery stress and minimizes gassing and water loss.
  4. Equalization: This mode activates to prevent stratification and sulfate buildup during extended storage cycles. These two issues can damage a battery by causing the accumulation of acid at the bottom of the battery and hardened sulfate crystals on the battery plates. This mode is especially helpful when your battery is going unused during storage.

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.


Available Converter Status Remote Pendant for Easy Monitoring and Control

converter status remote pendant

The Converter Status Remote Pendant (sold separately) monitors the converter's charging status. It also allows you to manually override the charge process to verify the unit is operating properly. The pendant uses a flashing green LED to indicate what charging mode is active. It easily connects to the converter's accessory port with the attached cable.


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 and plug

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

I have 2 of these. One just literally burned up after two years of very light duty, as it is only used as a backup for solar. I just purchased 2 more as a replacement and spare. None of them were shipped in the original packaging or with documentation. All were just put in a box with a piece of paper for padding.


Comments
This is a follow-up after 1 year. The replacement unit that was purchased a year ago is still in service albeit very seldom used solar backup. The second unit of the 2 originally purchased just died a couple months ago after 2.5 years of moderate use.

Review from a similar Inteli-Power in RV Converters


Excellent! I've been using two PD 9270 units in my two Vanagons for over 15 years. So when I switched to Lithium Batteries in one of my Vans, I chose the PD 9160 ALV. And again, flawless operation that didn't require me to go to some menu to change settings. I've monitored the charging process using a popular shunt based blue tooth battery monitor and was able to confirm a perfect operation of the charging profile. As an extra bonus, this unit was exactly the same physical size as the PD 9270 it replaced. There were no modifications needed to do the swap.
I have been watching people online complaining about other chargers while getting lost with the menu changes required.
I couldn't be happier.

Review from a similar Inteli-Power in RV Converters


As described, quick delivery. I checked the S1 switch upon delivery after problems others had encountered with the switch solder joints, mine had no defects. Installation was pretty straightforward. I will agree with other reviewers in that the included instructions are a little lacking. Worked as advertised, pleasantly surprised with how quiet the unit is.

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,

The converter and charger is working very well and I like how I dont have to watch how well the battery is charged

Review from a similar Inteli-Power in RV Converters


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.

Review from a similar Inteli-Power in RV Converters


Based on other reviews, I received this product about as expected. Shipping took a very long time, this took 9 days to arrive after notification of shipping. The product was not packed very well, it does not have any visible damage from shipping though, which was a concern considering how the box looked. There are no instructions with the product. As expected, the lithium/AGM switch has a damaged solder joint.
Over-all if there was another similar product from any other vendor available, I would have bought something else. At this time I'm not aware of anything else in stock, so this will do and I will make the needed repairs to make it work. It will be replacing the current control panel in our camper so we are able to charge LiFePO batteries.

Review from a similar Inteli-Power in RV Converters


The only reason I gave this a 4 is because of the way that it was packaged for shipment. The item itself is a clear 5 stars.

It came crammed in a box with no padding whatsoever alongside a 30lb 36' 50a cord. Luckily there was no damage to the unit itself. Also didn't come with the two extra wires that it said it did, I could have used them but worked around it.

Install was a breeze. I upgraded my travel trailer from a 30 amp with a WFCO WF-8955PEC to this unit. It took around 3-3.5 hours from start to finish.

Would highly recommend this unit to anybody looking to upgrade their 30amp service.

The only thing that would make this nut better is if they removed the slide lock Romex holes in the back and made it to where you could add you're own locks in. I had to fight it a couple times to get my wires where I wanted them.

10/10 would recommend.

Review from a similar Inteli-Power in RV Converters


My old converter was struggling to charge my lithium ion battery so I found this and took a shot. It seemed like my old converter, made for lead acid batteries, could charge the battery, but soooo slow and it seemed like the batteries would drain down to 30-50% every time we came to a travel day. I installed this and boom, instant 14+ volts going to the batteries and charged them to 100% so fast. Then once charged it dropped back to 13.6 volts in rest mode. The converter is a lot quieter than my prior one and the fan hardly ever kicks on. So happy I bought this. Shipping was faster than something else I order the same day on [online retailer]! etrailer has got their shipping department on lock down!!

Still excellent. Still loving etrailer!

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

The power center is working well now after a year. I did end up purchasing a separate negative 12v grounding buss, which is also working well.

Review from a similar Inteli-Power in RV Converters


We utilized the Progressive Dynamics Inteli-Power RV Converter and lithium Battery Charger as part of our lead acid to Lithium upgrade for our Aliner RV. We had several manufacturers to choose from but are very pleased with our decision to go with this product. It’s performance remains steadfast after the first year in service, its quiet, efficient, reliable and perhaps best of all MADE IN AMERICA! The multi stage smart charging g work flawlessly with our Lithium battery system. 100% recommendations from this satisfied us timer!

Review from a similar Inteli-Power in RV Converters


There is obviously a manufacturing issue with the circuit board of the PD4135 converter charger. When I received the first one that I had ordered, I went to switch the converter to lithium battery operation, and noticed that the bottom pin of switch S1 was not soldered to the circuit board pad. E-trailer promptly sent me a replacement converter which I received today. The first thing I did was to check the solder on switch S1. The picture shows the switch in the condition received (exact same issue). I will be looking at a different solution for my converter/charger needs.

Review from a similar Inteli-Power in RV Converters


So far I think this unit is perfect for my cargo trailer conversion. It was simple to install and for the money you can hardly build something similar. I took off one star however since the S1 switch for Lithium battery charging was not properly soldered to the board (one leg had detached). I was able to fix it easily enough but not everyone is comfortable soldering surface mount components on a PCB.

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.


Comments
Have used this charger for past year. No problems or complaints. Does a great job.

Review from a similar Inteli-Power in RV Converters


We live in our rv full time and the installation of this power inverter was a great upgrade. I needed one that would charge our lithium batteries while plugged in ana it has worked flawlessly. It is a little smaller then the old outdated one, but was easy to remedy.


Comments
working flawlessly. Pretty much plug in the rv and forget it. It does let out a loud squealing noise when you first plug in but it goes away within 30 seconds.

Review from a similar Inteli-Power in RV Converters


The PD9160Al 2 stage charger was easy to install but did not deliver 60 amps. The charger averaged about 50 amps for the majority of the charging period then dropped quickly to zero once the battery was fully charged. I had some questions for the tech staff which were answered promptly. I replaced a PD4655 with the PD9160 rather than a PD 4655ALV. I would recommend this 2 stage inverter/charger for anyone with a lithium battery.

Review from a similar Inteli-Power in RV Converters


I purchased this unit as a backup incase my original one had problems after I changed my AGM batteries for my new Lithiums. So far the original unit is doing well, but I am glad to have this one in these times of shortages. The part that really concerns me was that it was the only thing in the box that traveled with UPS for four days. No packaging material was securing the plastic unit inside, nothing to keep it from bouncing around inside. Thankfully it arrived without damage, I am surprised.




by:

Review from a similar Inteli-Power in RV Converters


When i went to a lifpo4 battery on my Aliner, I discovered I needed an updated controller in order to properly charge the battery. Based on reviews, I chose this Progressive Dynamics controller. It installed ok into the cabinet. (I had to add a small strip of wood to fill a gap as the front panel was slightly smaller than the old one.) After a year, no problems at all. So, a 5 star rating.




by:

Review from a similar Inteli-Power in RV Converters


I am in process of installing this on my personal RV, but I'm impressed by the specification and functionality. The transfer switch on the inverter makes this extremely simple to incorporate into the electrical system and makes the operation even easier. There is huge value having less components to deal with, and when adding items like this to an RV, space can be limited. So, this helps to keep a smaller equipment footprint.




by:

Review from a similar Inteli-Power in RV Converters


All wired in and seems to be a great product. Installing was pretty simple if you have any clue about electrical. Make sure you look at the install directions on the product page. The ones with the unit aren’t real good. Would have given 5 stars, but this transaction with etrailer was the worst I’ve had. Typically receive orders in 2-3 days. It took 2 weeks to the day to get this one. It posted shipped the day I ordered. A week later 2 phone calls and an email it finally showed up in their local post office.

Review from a similar Inteli-Power in RV Converters


I installed this unit in my 200 amp lithium battery system along with a dc to dc charger system and never run out of power. This is powering a dc fridge and electronics. When plugged in to shore power fast charging and maintaining. Very satisfied.
Thank you, Mike

  • Are Progressive Dynamics Converters Compatible with Flooded Lead-Acid Batteries
    I believe by FLA you mean "Flooded Lead-Acid" battery bank. Since this is just the standard battery yes, the Progressive Dynamics PD9200 Series Inteli-Power Converter Charger # PD924024A as long as they are connected as a 24V system. If they are setup as a 12V system then the equivalent at 40 amps is part # PD9140A instead. Attached are review videos for you to check out.

  • Charging Two 12V Lithium Batteries Properly
    Whenever changing the battery type, it's a smart to change the way you charge. I would recommend getting a 12V Lithium charging system if your batteries are not wired in parallel. They most likely are so in that case you should get this one # PD924024A. It is the same brand as your other one # PD9160ALV but is for lithium batteries.

  • How to Provide 12V Power Source for Testing Trailer Lighting
    I spoke to my contact at Progressive Dynamics and he agreed with my proposed recommendation that for your specific application of temporarily testing/evaluating light placement in your build project you simply use a 12V deep cycle battery along with a solar battery charger like # PTW2997. This 2.5 watt solar charger has built in blocking circuitry to prevent reverse discharge from your battery back to the panel.

    You will be able to use either the Progressive Dynamics Inteli-Power RV Converter and Battery Charger 60-Amp # PD9160ALV or 45-Amp # PD9145ALV to charge your lithium battery. The difference is going to come down to the maximum rate of charge that can go to the battery or batteries if you add a 2nd battery, which results in how quickly the battery can reach a full charge.

Then for cables to connect the battery bank you'd want the part # DW04362 for the positives and the # DW04365 for negative.
