  • How To Choose the Correct Size Charge Converter for Trailer When Switching To Lithium Batteries
  • I don't have a fool proof way of selecting the proper charge converter amperage rating because it is not based solely off the battery capacity but rather this combined with the load the trailer uses. Therefore, the best option would be to go with the same amperage the trailer came with, part # PD9130LV for 30 amps, part # PD9140ALV for 40 amps, part # PD9145ALV for 45 amps, part # PD9160ALV for 60 amps, or part # PD9180ALV for 80 amps. These are all rated for lithium batteries. If you have...

  • What Does Smart System Not Included With Progressive Dynamics Lithium Converter and Battery Charger
  • The smart system not included basically means the Progressive Dynamics Inteli-Power RV Converter and Battery Charger part # PD9180ALV does not include the charging wizard for the Lithium batteries. The charging wizard was a charger that monitors the RV battery voltage and then selects one of three charging voltages and one of four operating modes to properly re-charge and maintain the RV battery.

  • Which Progressive Dynamics Converter for RV with 3 AGM Batteries?
  • The fan on your Progressive Dynamics # PD9260C running more often than usual could mean a couple of things are going on here; and you're correct in thinking that most of them aren't a good sign. It sounds like you've cleaned out the vents on the converter as well as changed the fuses, but one of the telltale signs that your converter is going out is that it's overcharging your battery. I recommend checking the voltage on your batteries; they should be around 13.5v if the converter is still...

It is common for the converter to get warm and the fan should turn on to regulate the temperature of the converter. The humming may be the sound of the fan that you hear.

  • Does Lithium Trailer Battery Need a Different Charger/Converter
  • Lithium batteries do require a higher voltage when charging than non-lithium batteries so a converter like the part # PD4655LIV would be needed if you have WFCO power converter. If you have a different brand panel let me know and I can help with that. Or if you wanted an all new panel you'd need one that is compatible with lithium and lead acid batteries like the Progressive Dynamics # PD4045KA.

  • Can Progressive Dynamics Converter # PD9160A Replace PD9155
  • I reached out to my contact at Progressive Dynamics and he said the 60 amp # PD9160A Converter will work just fine to replace your existing PD9155. The slight increase in amperage isn't an issue at all and there aren't any safety concerns. This is going to provide you with a higher 60 amp output, so if a fuse on your current unit is being blown from being overdrawn, or it's simply an internal issue on an old converter, the replacement will work perfectly and will resolve this problem....

  • 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.

  • Is a New Converter Needed When Switching To Lithium Ion Batteries
  • In order to effectively charge lithium ion batteries you will need a converter designed specially for this purpose as the standard lead acid converter you have now will not work well. For this, we have a few options which will be roughly based on the amp hour capacity of the battery bank. The Lion Energy Safari 1300 Battery is 12 volt with a 105 amp hour capacity. If you were only using only one then you would go with a 60 amp converter part # PD9160ALV but if you were using two (wired...

  • Replacement Converter Comparable to PD9140A

The # PD9145A is 8-1/4" long x 7-1/4" wide x 4-11/16" deep so it is not quite as long or wide, but is a little deeper than the 9-1/8" long x 7-3/8"...

  • Replacement Panel for WF8725 to Allow for Charging Lithium Battery
  • In order to upgrade a WF-8735P to lithium capability you'll have to swap the entire panel. The Progressive Dynamics RV Power Control Center with AC/DC Panel and Converter/Smart Charger part # PD4135K is my recommendation. You run more than one thing from the terminals of your battery whether it's for charging or powering other accessories so you would not need to create a loop to allow for a second set.

  • Recommended 30 Amp Converter for 1998 Towlite Camper
  • It sounds like you have a camper that has a 30amp service panel already, so for a new converter you'll want to use the Progressive Dynamics # PD9130 which is a 30amp converter designed to work with lead acid batteries.

  • Why Doesn't Progressive Dynamics Charger for Lithium Batteries Use Charge Wizard
  • The Charge Wizard on some of the Progressive Dynamics chargers is not used on the models that work with the Lithium batteries. This is because it is a feature that analyzes batteries and provides the best charge based on current charge and condition. Lithium battery charging is a totally different animal since they discharge and charge totally differently which is why the Charge Wizard is not compatible/needed with the part # PD9145ALV.
