Replacing an older linear 25A unit, it fit right into the available space, and could use entirely existing wiring.

If using stranded main output wire, you might want to crimp on a ferrule, as the (hex-key, not slotted or phillips) 8-32 screws that secure the wire (max. AWG 4) will tend to spread stranded wire; with solid copper this won't be an issue.

From box-open to installed and running took less than 1 hour, mostly hooking up the fuse block (see other reviews).

The Charge Wizard blinked contentedly to itself for about 48 hours, connected to my 2 Marine deep discharge batteries, then went to float. So far I haven't noticed the cooling fan running (at 30A or less). The output seems to be 13.2 VDC, with ripple under load below 120mV according to my DVM.

Replacing the power converter/battery charger in a 1985 Shasta travel trailer. The old setup was 30 amps which is plenty for the minimal power needed, but this 45 amp was priced to beat, so we went with it.

We did have to do some Gerry-rigging due to the age of the old setup. We didn't replace the circuit breaker box, so we had to make some adjustments to get things hooked up with that. We also kept the individual fuse setup from the old system and that took some extra maneuvering.

This converter/charger is working great. It charges the house battery without issue. With ac hookup, we can run everything at once with no blown fuses/circuits. With battery power, we can run the water pump and lights without any issue (before, we never could get the lights to work on battery power).

One note: when inserting the wires, be very careful how much you loosen the screws. They don't unscrew all the way out, and if you unscrew them too far, they move out of alignment and strip - and once that happens, there's no fixing it without taking the entire thing out and apart. (We ended up using electrical wire to overcome that little mistake but not before trying to fight it for ages).

If you're replacing a newer setup, it should be a very easy process. If you're replacing an old setup, you may need to work a bit harder, but it will work great.

We are full time RV's. Charger is lightweight and easily fit into the tight space in our RV. Installation was simple and easily used the existing wiring. Charged and maintains our 2 12v batteries very well.

I do RV repair and find that these units are more reliable than original equipment. The battery Wizard feature helps maintain battery life. Easy to install if you have any wiring experience. As a replacement to regular converters, you can leave the original power distribution AC and DC breaker and fuses and just output the AC feed from the power board and reroute it to the Power amp and install an electrical outlet. For the DC (Battery) function, you just need to extend the power old board's output out of the Converter housing and attach it to the Power amp output. The output of the Power amp also has it own protective fuses. Do I need to suggest the you have to have the AC power and the battery power turned off before attempting the retrofit?

I bought this unit on the recommendation of two friends who use them in their RVs. They just bought the Charge Wizard plug-in units because their existing inverters had the capability built in, but my old charger was a "cheapy" that put a constant charge on the battery - and shortened it's life. Haven't had it in the trailer long, but so far it works great. When I first hooked up this unit it even partially brought the old battery back to life, but ot was too far gone, so I bought a new battery. Since we use our traler infrequently, it is very important to have the battery properly charged. A new battery might only last a year or two at best without the Charge Wizard. My friends batteries are pushing 5 years. Another advantage is that when I fire up the generator out in the boonies the battery will get a fast charge automatically while I'm using the microwave or air conditioner. It was easy to hook up, and of course Amazon's low price and free shipping didn't hurt either.

We have been very impressed by the PD9245CV from Progressive Dynamics. I ordered this unit to replace the Elixir Industries ELX45 45 Amp Solid State Converter/Charger that originally came with our camper. The Elixir serves as the Converter/Charger and the 110v/12v distribution panel for the whole camper and the PD9245CV is only the Converter/Charger, but we didn't want to replace the distribution panel. We always had a challenge with the Elixir unit as we could over load the unit if we used too many things in the camper at once. The fan was also very loud and would run with almost anything on.

The Progressive Dynamics unit is rated at the same amperage as the old Elixir, but operates much much better. We can turn on every 12v device in the camper and the fan doesn't even start running hard. On top of that the fan is very quiet and runs at variable speeds. I had to open the cabinet and put my had over the fan to tell that it was working. Last, but not least, the 4-stage battery charger and maintainer is much better for your deep-cycle batteries than the basic chargers that will gas-off your battery if you leave it plugged in too long. With the Progressive you can plug it in and forget it.

The unit sold from Amazon IS a retail package so it does include the Progressive Dynamics PD 9200 Series Pendant, so you don't have to buy a separate one.
