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.

The item arrived on time which is always nice. I got advice from etrailer on which unit to get with an explanation as to why also a good thing. The install was easy. I am impressed with the units functionality and the fact it makes no noise at all. I would recommend both the unit and etrailer.




by:

After a year of ownership, I continue to be very happy with the Progressive Dynamics RV Converter. In particular, the multi-stage charging feature keeps my battery much healthier. Highly recommended!


Comments
Still extremely satisfied! The battery minder feature is terrific for cold Midwest Winters!

Super converter and charger! I bought it to replace the OEM charger in my Airstream, which died in the middle of a road trip and left us with dead batteries. The Progressive Dynamics charger determines how run down your batteries are and adjusts the voltage to recharge the batteries as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Best convertor out there




by:

I bought this converter smart charger because I was burning up batteries within a year with my old charger/converter. But it was 30 years old. This charger cycles through the stages as it is programmed. It charges when needed and floats when needed. It has been installed a week and works great. I'll check back in a year and report on how it's doing.




by:

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

The Progressive Dynamics Inteli-Power RV Converter and Smart Battery Charger - 12V - 60 Amps
Item # PD9260C was an after market replacement for the original converter and works great. Thank you for the great customer service and quick shipping




by:

Vicki was very professional and friendly!! Made ordering the part very easy and quick. The part went in like a dream with taking out the older model. Would definitely use them again for more parts!




by:

Just finished with the install. The converter is probably working like it should. I was leery at first because I tested the old one at 13.3 volts. I noticed on other reviews that the pendant was included in the package.




by:

quality product good price,

I have yet to be disappointed with etrailer. Their technicians have always been knowledgeable, quick with their response and steer me in the right direction. Delivery has always been prompt. Thx and keep up the good work.

Great. Keeping those batteries charged!!

Received today and installed,Gwen was excellent in helping me with this order,Received in timely manner but as in previous posts a 250 dollar electronic part is worthy of some bubble wrap




by:

Installed this to replace the POS converter that came with the camper. The original converter killed two batteries before I figure out it was the problem. This one seems to be much better - no issues with the battery. The old one the voltage/amps varied as the battery was depleted, then it would kick in, supercharge the battery and kill it. The voltage is very stable with this one - lights don't dim then brighten suddenly.




by:

I'm a full-time RVer and have been running this converter for 1 year. It has performed flawlessly.




by:

I haven't had a chance to install the unit yet but the advice ,service and delivery were all very good. The tech that I spoke to before ordering the part was very helpful and knowledgeable making my decision much easier. This is the second order I have placed in the past month and I am very pleased with both orders.


Comments
So far so good. Installation was very simple and all wiring connections were identical to the original which made the installation simple. Since we mainly use our RV when we are in Florida during the winter weve only used it a couple of months but all is good so far.

Excellent product and service




by:

It's been in about a week and so far so good. Seems to be doing the job. This Replacement one was Slightly Larger so I had to make a couple of modifications to the Original Mount, but I had Planned on That. Reasonably Quick Service, I'd Order from these guys Again.

One third the size and weight, and more powerful.. Instillation was simple.. getting the old one out was the "pain". New batteries, new converter.. perfect.

I am a retired captain US merchant marine.
I found out about this product from a friend.
Initially I received the converter charger and did the hook up myself. It has good instructions easy to follow and I could call the company and talk to an expert for advice. I found the phone call to be a extremely valuable. After consulting with engineering I received free of charge a pigtail and control to boost into high voltage charging. Another very valuable item to me. I have been monitoring the voltage quite often with extreamly good results. I have Told many of my friendsThey should get one of these and it house my complete seal of approval. ( Thank you progressive a good job well done)
