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 input and output terminals. 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.

The DC terminals are wired to the battery bank.

inverter terminals

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 Inverter w/ Transfer Switch - PD94FR

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (1257 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.


Purchased this inverter for sole reason to run my new RV 120v a/c refrigerator. I recommend the remote panel, easy off/on as well battery voltage indicator. The existing circuit I used for refrigerator also was for a few receptacles, handy to have for cellular WiFi router while under way. Has been a year now, no regrets, I like it.


Looking into several inverters ,, reviews and comments i selected these easy to install ,, i like the Transfer switch installed on the dash of the vehicle, they are quite and can run a Spartan model 300 with ease nice Product


I have had this for a year and I am a full-time RVer. So far this unit has met or exceeded my expectations.


Always excellent Ordering here ,, Prices are Great shipping is awesome the staff seems Knowledgeable Good experience


Has worked well when used..wish I'd bought the 2000 watt. But no problem so far.


Thank you ertrailer for a web site that is easy to navigate and find the products that best fir my needs. I found that the inverter was well documented and easy to install in place of my old inverter. It is quiet and has an informative status screen. The distribution panel and charger was easy to install but I wish there was more documentation to go along with it and assist in understanding how it operates. I submitted a question regarding its operation to support and received a comprehensive reply. i am very pleased with the products and the etrailer support.


I replaced an older Xantrex modified sine wave inverter with this one as my new TVs would not work with the Xantrex. Fairly easy install and reused the telephone cable from the Xantrex remote. I did have to re-termninate one end of the cable to emulate the supplied roll over cable. I did this to avoid re-routing cables. Bottomline, my TVs and all electric fridge work great now.


Seems like a very solid reliable unit. I replaced 300W unit with this 1000W and added an outlet with 2 USB chargers so I could charge our laptop and phones when not on shore power or generator power. The remote is also a nice feature with useful information at your fingertips. Installation of the inverter and the remote were straight forward well illustrated with measurements for the remote.


The frame was bent when opened. Appears the unit may have been used. I’ll test the unit within the next few days to determine if it’s defective.

I am sorry to hear that this item arrived in that condition. I can assure you that we do not sell any returned or used items. However, we do have a demonstration team that takes our product and does a temporary installation in order to get videos and pictures of the item in use. It is our policy to make sure that the item is still in good or new condition before it gets put back on the shelf for sale. When you have the opportunity to test the unit, we would love for your feedback.

I am in the process of installing the unit. I did set the unit up for testing and it worked fine. The unit does have a high no load consumption of 17 watts with inverter on and 5 watts when passing through ac on the transfer switch.

I have gotten in contact with the manufacturer and they have confirmed that those numbers are correct when the inverter is not in use. This unit should be having power running through it at all times when connected. If you do not want any power running through it, you will have to disconnect it when its not in use.


Great product and even better service from the eTrailer team!


Exactly what I needed




It has been working great. No problems at all.


Easy install and quite. Works like a ch arm.



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!


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.


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.


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.


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!


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.


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.


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


I always get my battery chargers manufactured by Progessive Dynamics ( no matter what battery tech I use). Never had a failure in 10 plus years!

  • Installing A Progressive Dynamics Inverter In A 2022 Keystone Bullet Travel Trailer
    The Progressive Dynamics # PD94FR does indeed have an internal transfer switch, but because of this will require you to have a second hot bus bar for the circuits you want to power with the inverter. If your panel only has one bus bar then you'll need to install a subpanel and move the circuits you want powered by the inverter to the subpanel. When AC shore power is available the transfer switch will shut the inverter off and allow power to flow through to the subpanel. When AC shore...

  • 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...

  • 2006 Eclipse Attitude Toyhauler CS6000XL Converter and Distribution Panel Replacement
    Transfer switches do make an audible click so that is most likely what you are hearing but with that said your American Enterprises Distribution Panel Converter CS6000Xl does not have an built in transfer switch. The Progressive Dynamics panel part # PD4560K18LS8 that you referenced does not have a transfer switch built in so if you needed one as well you'd want the part # PD94FR. You probably have a transfer switch already which may still be working.

  • Does The Progressive Dynamics 1000 Watt Inverter # PD94FR Detect The Battery Type Connected?
    The Progressive Dynamics 1000 Watt Inverter # PD94FR is not able to automatically detect the type of battery it is connected to. There is also not a switch which allows you to tell the Inverter if you are connected to either lithium or a lead acid battery. It would be best to integrate the inverter with a Battery Management System # RED88FR so you can protect your lithium batteries by disconnecting power when it reaches a certain state of charge.
