inverter

This 12V inverter, with built-in transfer switch, changes DC output from your RV batteries into AC power and sends it to the electrical system. Using pure sine wave technology, it creates clean power with low distortion, making it safe, efficient, and perfect for sensitive electronics like computers. The inverter can generate 2,000 starting watts and 1,000 running watts which is a great fit for appliances and electronics. Additionally, with the integrated transfer switch, it will automatically change from inverter to shore power when available.


Functions and Features

To connect your AC loads, the inverter includes hardwired 15-amp input cord and an output terminal. It also has positive and negative DC terminals that connect to your batteries. Lastly, there is a port for the included fixed-mount remote. 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 overloading which can damage your equipment, as well as the converter. 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. For additional safety, installing a 200-amp fuse (sold separately) between the battery bank and the inverter will protect your equipment from power surges.


Built-In Transfer Switch Automatically Switches to Shore Power

The integrated transfer switch selects the primary source of 120V AC current. This switch has been pre-wired to automatically change from inverter to shore power to conserve battery life. It includes a 20-amp leg rated at 135V. Additionally, since the switch only accepts one active source, it protects your electrical system from dangerous backfeed that can damage your equipment.


Fixed-Mount Remote Provides Easy Monitoring and Control

inverter remote

The fixed-mount remote lets you monitor and control the inverter from inside your RV. It includes a digital display that shows voltage, output power, error codes, and a low battery indicator. It also has a power button to turn the inverter on and off.


How It Installs

The inverter mounts inside your RV in a dry location with ventilation. It should be installed close to the battery bank, but not in the same compartment.


inverter terminals

The DC terminals are wired to the battery bank.


There are several ways to connect the inverter to your RV's electrical system, but this will depend on your rig and how you want to use your inverter. If your RV's distribution panel only has one leg, a subpanel will be needed for installation. You will also need a 100-amp circuit breaker between the inverter and battery positive post. Two 20-amp circuit breakers will be needed to channel AC power from the main panel into the inverter and then out into the subpanel.

Review from a similar Inteli-Power in RV Inverters


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 Inverters


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 Inverters


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 Inverters


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 Inverters


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 Inverters


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 Inverters


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 Inverters


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 Inverters


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 Inverters


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 Inverters


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 Inverters


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.

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 Inverters


The series 9200 Inteli-Power charger is replacing a worn out series 7700, 55 amp Parallax inverter in the Airstream motor home. When I originally ordered another 7700 Parallax from a well-known web site, I received a completely different unit that was listed for less than half of what I paid, without explanation or a refund. I sent it back and went right to etrailer, which is what I should have done in the first place. I was told that the unit was in back order and was offered a substitute if I didn’t want to wait. I decided to wait, and wtrailer filled the order in a couple of days. The charger is a multi-purpose, high-quality item; well worth the (short) wait. Comes with good instructions. Very easy to mount.

Review from a similar Inteli-Power in RV Inverters


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.

  • Difference Between Pure Sine Wave Inverter w Transfer Switch PD34FR and PD1210NR
    The Progressive Dynamics Pure Sine Wave Inverter w Transfer Switch and Cord - Remote - 1,000 Watts - 12V # PD34FR is the new replacement for the kit PD1210NR that you referenced. These are essentially the same, except the upgrade only has ports for the AC connections instead of GFCI for some AC connections. These use lugs for the DC connections instead of the ring terminals like what it sounds like you have. Personally I'd go with the newer part # PD34FR. Since it's newer it means that...

  • Replacement Inverter for for WFCO 5110R in RV
    I did some checking and your WFCO 5110R is a 1,000 watt pure sine wave inverter so the Progressive Dynamics Pure Sine Wave Inverter part # PD34FR that you referenced would be a great choice as it is also a 1,000 watt inverter plus it has a built in transfer switch.

  • What Pure Sine Wave Inverter Is Needed
    To calculate power consumption simply multiply wattage by the number of hours it is being used. Remember to consider type of current, AC or DC. The number of watts is equal to amps multiplied by volts. Your battery bank is rated in Amp Hours, AH. If you have a lithium chemistry battery you can use almost the entire charge before voltage drops below a usable range. If you have a battery bank that is lead acid chemistry, including those labeled as AGM or Gel, you can use at best half of...

  • Hooking Up a Hybrid Solar/Wind Controller to the Batteries with Progressive Dynamics # PD4060K?
    I have an answer for you about a controller. While it is possible, we currently do not have any hybrid solar/wind controllers because those parts have been discontinued. With that being said, if you already have a solar/wind controller, you can use the Progressive Dynamics Mighty Mini AC/DC Panel and Converter/Smart Charger - 60 Amp # PD4060K. With this converter, the DC side of the panel would work great. With the AC side, however, this requires either AC shore power or an inverter...

  • Power Requirements of Everchill 120V 324-000118 RV Refrigerator
    Everchill recommends using a pure sine wave inverter to ensure a clean and consistent power supply to the compressor of the # 324-000118 refrigerator. The refrigerator draws 2.5 amps which would convert to 300 running watts. Multiply that by 3 to get the necessary wattage for compressor start-up, which would be 900 watts. So, in order to power your refrigerator you'll need an absolute minimum of a 900 watt inverter. This assumes that the refrigerator is all you're wanting to power with...
