rv power center

This RV power control center combines an AC/DC panel with a smart converter charger. Creating easy access to your electrical connections, this all-in-one breaker box distributes AC and DC loads to your RV and charges your batteries while connected to shore power. It's compatible with lithium and lead acid batteries.


AC/DC Electrical Distribution

internal view

The panel supplies AC and DC distribution to your RV's electrical system. The AC section has space for up to 3 breakers rated for 120V at 30 amps. This lets you have up to 6 branch circuits when you use tandem breakers. The DC section has 12 branch fuse holders capable of using (2) 30 amp and (10) 20 amp fuses. However, you will need to purchase AC breakers and DC fuses separately to complete the installation.


inside cover

Once all of your connections are made, the breakers and fuses are easily accessible by opening the door on the front of the box. The door also includes a blank label to list all of the connections.


Multifunctional Converter Charger

switch charging mode

The integrated converter charger changes AC shore power into DC power to charge your battery bank. It includes an output mode switch that lets you choose either lithium or lead acid batteries. No matter what type of battery is installed in your RV, you'll always have the most efficient charging profile. If your RV already has a stock converter charger, it will need to be removed to ensure this unit operates properly.


Charging Profile Designed for Lithium Batteries

In lithium mode, the unit uses a higher output voltage, which provides a fast, complete charge. It also extends battery life since it utilizes the appropriate charging profile. Additionally, this mode is compatible with your battery's internal Battery Management System (BMS), which helps manage the charge cycle by monitoring the battery state and balancing cell voltage.


Charge Wizard for Lead Acid Batteries

In lead acid mode, the Charge Wizard automatically switches voltages while your lead acid battery bank charges. This accelerates the charge but also helps extend battery life by adjusting the voltage during the different modes. This function 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. The built-in cooling fan also removes excess heat from the unit. The fan speed is proportional to the internal temperature of the converter, so when the power demand is low, the fan will operate quietly.

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 hate to hear that it arrived damaged. I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you. If it is indeed damaged then we would like to get it replaced for you.



by:

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.



by:

I wasn't sure if I was able to do this job myself. Our last converter was making a high pitch sound that drove her crazy. I could not hear it. But I labeled all the wiring before disconnecting them from the original one. It was a pain being on the floor to do the work, but probably save 500. By not taking it to a dealer. Make sure to get the same exact model number of the one you have before you order your part. You can do it.



by:

Fast shipping,after installation the product works as should. I like the option to use a lithium battery in the future. Thanks



by:

I bought this converter to replace the stock converter in my Geo Pro trailer. I switched to a lithium battery, and this converter is built with a switch so in works with both lead acid and lithium batteries. Used the trailer full time last year for 11 weeks and the converter worked flawlessly.

It has worked flawlessly since I installed it. Would definitely purchase it again



by:

It was an exact fit for my RV. The converter has been working great since I installed it.



by:

Item works perfectly so far very good w orkmanship



by:

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.

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.



by:

Took me about 2 days to install had to figure out all the color and number codes on on the DC side, but after figuring out and connecting, everything all works great. My battery is now staying charged, yahoo!



by:

This has worked great so far, I haven't used the battery charge function, however everything else has been great.



by:

Powerful unit that serves my rv well!



by:

Unfortunately this converter was not a “drop-in” replacement (as advertised by PD) for the existing converter in my trailer. It’s actual dimensions are larger and would not fit in my existing converter space. I should have double checked the specs. More disconcerting was that it was shipped without the factory packaging and manuals by etrailer. It came in a box with paper padding that seemed inadequate to protect sensitive electronics. etrailer needs to do better than this.

I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you. The overall dimensions are 12.25 inches long by 8.75 inches tall by 7.25 inches deeo. The rear cutout dimensions are 10.75 inches long by 7.25 inches tall.



by:

This product is great. It took a little bit of time to put in but was worth it. No more overheating or humming as the previous converter had been doing. There is even extra spots available if you want to add another breaker. The color coding on the wires made it easy to hook up without tangling the cables. I would highly recommend this product.

The converter is still working well a year later. Never gets hot or hums. Fantastic replacement for my needs.



by:

Replaced a 16 year old converter that had mostly unfiltered dc circuits, which would measure at 12v at no load but, to my surprise, would rise to 23v under load. This caused LED light bulbs to run very hot and caused the max-air fan to stop running. Bought this new converter and it fixed the 12 system issues! The LED’s stay cool, the fan works and the kingdom is at peace. I also like the battery charging intelligence that keeps the house battery charged without overcharging.



by:

Great service always thanks



by:

It would be 5 star but the face plate keeps popping off the tabs. For safety for grand kids I drilled and installed 4 screws holding on the face plate. The plastic tabs that secure the face plate need to be strengthened.



by:

I’ve ordered from a trailer multiple times. Pretty disappointing when I received a converter worth a few hundred dollars not packaged properly. I’m just hoping that it works so that I don’t have to send it back. But on this occasion it was very surprising/disappointing. Anyways, that’s my two bits!

I apologize for the state of your package. Please let customer service know if there is anything wrong with it within a 60 day timeframe.



by:

Quality product. Great phone support from Progressive Dynamics. Replaced a WFCO unit and needed some clarification on the wiring ... needed to wire the 12V main power lines slightly different than the WFCO, but support clarified how to do it! eTrailer and YouTube videos also helped!



by:

It's doing the job but I wish it had a charge profile specific to a LiFePo4 battery, no just lithium in general. I've monitored the voltages it's throwing at the battery and they're not ideal. Battleborn has built in protections for the battery and they recommended this converter, but I'd still like it to be tuned a bit better.



by:

The power box was good .when we loaded out the motor home,somehow they pulled the main power cable apart inside the casting and you could not see it .So now I have a spare box .Still have not used the motor home since,this stupid lockdown we cannot go no where



by:

Came quick, easy to install, improvement over the old one. Definitely these are the folks to go to.



by:

Has been working great for a year now!



by:

I haven’t unboxed this yet as I am gathering parts for a new build. It shipped fast and Alex made the purchase easy.



by:

5 stars as I am very happy with all the products purchased from eTrailers. Always great products at a fair price. Thanks!



by:

Perfect replacement. Works like a charm. Easy to wire up.
