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.

Progressive Dynamics 1000 Watt Pure Sine Wave Inverter - PD34FR

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (1275 Customer Reviews)

1,000-Watt inverter lets you use appliances and devices wherever the road takes you. Pure sine wave technology is perfect for sensitive electronics like HDTVs and computers.


Nice, compact unit. Replace a WFCO inverter that came with our RV. Had replaced the WFCO 2 times plus returned one dead out of the box.

The Progressive Dynamics is a smaller footprint. The AC and DC wiring was easy and straightforward. No wire nuts (ugh) needed or did I need to stuff wires and wire nuts into a small space.

Nice operational display. I did not run the remote display/control into the RV but mounted it above the PD for easy use.


It’s working so well we don’t even think about it.


Outstanding, made in USA, seemless switches from shore to vehicle smoothly.
Remote disply is very handy for load monitoring.

Noaa L.


fantastic! very nice product, remote display is very useful for diagnostics.


Works like a champ and easy install.


Quiet and easy to see


unit works well and service was exellant associate well informed


very nice unit , no problems







etrailer should take some lessons from Amazon. When multiple products are sent to a distributor in a large box or pallet, the individual items should then be shipped for an order in a secure package. etrailer simply slapped a label on the manufacturer’s flimsy carton and tossed it to USPS who succeeded it breaking the single stran of tape around the box. When I received the package, the box was totally opened on one end and the inverter mounting tab was bent. Not the delivery I would expect for a $600+ item.


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!


Installation of PD9260C into Parallax 7300 power distribution panel

I purchased the Progressive Dynamics PD9260 to replace the power converter in my 2007 Airstream. My trailer had a Parallax7300 power distribution and power converter (AC to DC) installed from Airstream. I decided to replace just the power converter after it had failed. The PD9260C fit perfectly where the previous converter was installed with very little modification or effort.

I simply removed the older converter, removed some standoffs where the previous converters circuit board was mounted along with the old fan, and then drilled some holes to mount the PD9260 in the mounting tray of the old unit. I wired the new converter to the existing connections and tried it out. Everything worked as expected.


I installed this in my camp with 400 watts of solar an a LFP04 battery with a generator hookup. I use the lithium charge profile and it works great. It runs my 12v rv refrigerator with no issue.


Very concerned about this. Unit arrived via USPS in an unmarked cardboard box with zero packing. There was at least of clearance on sides which means it was banging around in the box the whole trip. Looks like a return. No hardware, or screws included. It wasn't even in a bag and "manual" is a corner-stapled 8.5x11 photocopy.

I wasn't planning on installing this right away, and now I'm thinking about returning because I don't want to have problems down the line due to unseen damage or broken solder joints. Very sketchy.


A little bit confusing when speaking with sale team, received conflicting information regarding converters application. Shipping was fast but converter container was damaged and poorly packed for sensitive electronics. Previous business with etrailer has been stellar. May be awhile before I can hookup converter, so hopeful nothing was damaged!


I purchased the Progressive Dynamics PD9200 to replace a failing OEM converter. The unit is wider than the original but with some minor wood work I was able to install it in the original location. As soon as I powered it up all of our problems in the 2018 Forest River 5th wheel vanished. Our main issue was flickering LEDs which drove us crazy. Time will tell if this is a quality product. etrailer is amazing to work with. The item arrived ahead of the estimated delivery date. It was packaged in the original box so the serial number on the unit matched the number on the box. No fear of counterfeit items from these folks.


Bought this distribution panel for an enclosed trailer build and it has been perfect! I coupled this with a 100aH lithium battery and Renogy lithium battery monitor; the built in lithium charging support has been a great option. After figuring out all of my wiring it was a very simple install and the blown fuse indicators are great for quick trouble shooting.


Game-changer for our lifepo4 batteries! I swapped out the PD 4135K for the WFCO 8735P that came standard in our trailer. Installation was fairly easy, just had to glue and screw a 1/2" square dowel in one side of the cutout to make the opening smaller. Wiring was simple. We only charge throu the converter when we don't have enough solar, and it's nice to know we're maximizing the charging from our generator. The lithium switch is really small and a little hard to access, but I shouldn't need to get to it again unless we switch back to AGM, which isn't going to happen. Happy we made the change!


I used this to replace a WFCO 9855 AD. The autodetect in the WFCO rarely worked properly. This Progressive Dynamics unit has been so much simpler and better for my batteries. I have (2) 200 ah Lifepo4 batteries. I finally got them to 100% charge. I was torn between the 45 amp and the 60 amp version. I ultimately chose the 45 amp to keep my amps down when plugged into lower amp shore power and also didn't want to stress the batterie cables.

My only minor complaint is the high power charging only lasts about 8 or 10 hours, before kicking to a maintenance charge. I have to disconnect wait 10 minutes and reconnect the converter to restart the high power charging cycle.


Glad I went lithium. Actually I have both. I can flip between lithium and my lead acid batteries for cold weather travels. But lithium charges up in half the time or less. And I have almost twice the reserve power. My only question for myself is, do I go solar, or do I install another bank of lithium? By far this is the best upgrade I've made to our rig.


This is working well for us in our diy camper! We had to use [online] to figure out how to hook it up.


This all-in-one power center is very well designed. Made to keep on-board batteries continuously charged, plenty of room for branch circuit breakers and 12v circuits. Built-in ventilation fan to keep the electronics cool. It comes in a smart looking case with hinged door access to the breakers and fuses and led indicator lights showing blown fuse location. Vey pleased with my choice of a distribution center for my trailer rebuild.

  • 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...
