SAFETY FIRST!!!
To insure immediate and continued safety of installation and use of your new Progressive Dynamics Power Converter, please
adhere to the following guidelines for ALL installations:
1.
2.
Do not install a converter whose amperage rating is higher than that which originally came installed in your application.
Doing so may cause wiring to overheat, resulting in damage to components and/or fire.
Disconnect all power sources prior to removal of the old converter. Power sources may include, but are not limited to:
• 120VAC shoreline power (unplug shoreline power cords)
• Onboard generator (disconnect per manufacturer’s instructions)
• 12VDC battery power (disconnect negative terminal(s) from battery(ies) )
IMPORTANT! Do not discard any components or fasteners until installation is complete and all aspects of power center pass
testing. Labeling and/or organizing fasteners as they are removed will improve ease of installation, as some fasteners will be re
-used from your current configuration!

The Charge Wizard Operation:
Wizard Mode Button
While the built-in Charge Wizard automatically determines which operating mode is best suited to recharge or maintain optimum battery condition, the Wizard
Mode Button allows for manual override and has an indicator light to indicate the mode of operation. (Located on DC board, included)
Light “ON” – Indicates the converter is in the Boost Mode and the output voltage is 14.4 VDC to rapidly recharge the battery up to 90% of full charge.
Light Blinks Rapidly (every 2-3 seconds) – Indicates the converter is in the Normal Mode and the output voltage is 13.6VDC. In this mode the converter is
safely completing the charge of the battery.
Light Blinks Slowly (every 5-6 seconds) – Indicates the unit is in the Storage Mode and the output voltage has been lowered to 13.2VDC. In this mode the
RV battery is fully charged and the converter is maintaining the charge.
MANUAL BUTTON. The manual button has been provided to allow the operator to manually override the converter (not recommended) and to verify the
converter is operating properly. For manual operation, Press and Hold the button. The indicator light will soon remain “ON” indicating Boost Mode. Continue
to hold the button and the light will blink rapidly indicating the converter is in the Normal Mode. Continue to hold the button until the light blinks slowly indicating the converter is now in the Storage Mode. After the manual button is released the converter will return to the automatic mode of operation, after a period
of time, to prevent damage to the battery.
REVERSE BATTERY PROTECTION CIRCUIT
If a battery is accidentally hooked up backwards, the converter will be protected. Easily accessible ATC type fuses will blow when a battery is connected in reverse. All PD4600 Series Converter Replacement units require (2) 30AMP fuses.
