RE: Jayco Charger Converter

We have a 2010 Jayco Eagle 313 RKS. It has a Progressive Dynamics Model PD9280A converter. For years the batteries would not stay up to full charge. Recently I changed the 50 amp, factory installed, in line circuit breaker (CV) to a 100 amp CV. This solved the problem, allowing up to 96 amps/13.7 volts to the batteries.

RE: Model PD9280A converter problems

Agreed. Dennis/PD went the extra mile to get me straightened out. I recommend them highly.

Thanks to all. Yep. Craig let's keep them going.

RE: After market exhaust brake reliability and effectiveness

Which type of system is better: one that uses an on board air compressor and butterfly valve, or an electrical module that changes the angle of the vanes in the turbocharger?

After market exhaust brake reliability and effectiveness

We have a 2009 Silverado 3500HD Duramax DRW. It did not come from the factory with an exhaust brake. The reviews are mixed on aftermarket systems (BD and Banks). What experiences have others had with these and other systems?

RE: Model PD9280A converter problems

Per guidance from Dennis at PD, I am replacing the CB with a manual reset Buzzman CB 185 series 100 amp. Thanks for all the help!!

RE: Operational problems with new diesel pickups

After receiving the recall notice for the passenger air bag in my 09 Silverado, I was concerned about the possibility of shrapnel discharge from the existing air bag. The recall stated no replacements were available. This turned out not to be true. My DW suggested calling the local Chevy dealer, we purchased the truck from. They had no problem replacing the actuator for the air bag. The truck has provided trouble free service through at least 4 extended western trips and local use. So after replacing the water pump and serpentine belt, it's easily good for another 100K miles.

I'm in Maryland. Getting great guidance from Dennis at PD. Thanks

RE: Model PD9280A converter problems

I'm replacing the relay (shortstop 12v s49 50a). It's reading 13.7v at one post and 11.3v at the other.

RE: Model PD9280A converter problems

PD checked both converters out. Both checked out fine. I received one back and installed it. Dennis at PD went the extra mile trouble shooting with me. Got consistent 120 volts at outlet converter plugs into (removed surge protector which showed some arching). 13.7 volts coming out of converter. Positive line running to battery compartment, hooks to a relay (I believe). The second post of the relay has a positive line running on to the batteries, with several other smaller lines hooked to it. Several years ago this thing started clicking. As it clicks the voltage at the battery posts changes from 11.3 volts to 12.5 volts, and back again. Is this caused by a bad relay? Called Jayco tech support and was told to take it to a dealer. My trustworthy dealer has retired and closed up shop, unfortunately.

RE: Model PD9280A converter problems

PD tech told me it didn't matter if the battery leads were hooked to the converter or not, to test the voltage going to the batteries. I believe I got 0 volts with the leads unhooked on first converter. And 8.4 volts on the second converter, with the leads hooked up.

RE: Model PD9280A converter problems

30 amp house outlet is on one breaker and shows 120v. Surge protector shows no problem with polarity. Measured 120 volts at outlet converters plug into. I purchased the first replacement through Amazon. When it showed 0 voltage output I contacted PD. They sent me a replacement, which showed 8.4 volt output. Sent both back to them, to be checked. They should have received them this morning. The batteries are brand new/12 volt. I charged the previous set of new batteries up with separate chargers. They then showed 12+ volts. The current set of new batteries showed 12 volts when installed. I've checked the fuses on the converters and have not found any burnt. We'll see what PD says. Agree these are very highly rated converters.

It is a PD9280A converter.

Model PD9280A converter problems

I am trying to replace the above original converter in my fiver (with same model converter). The first attempt resulted in 0 volts DC coming out of the converter, with it being plugged into 120 volts AC (meter check shows 120 volts). The second converter, again being plugged into 120 volts, showed 8.4 volts coming out. Per the Progressive Dynamics (PD) tech, it should be putting out 13.6 volts. So I have paid to send both converters back to PD, so they can check them out. I am on my second set of new deep cycle batteries. Also have replaced land line to 30 amp house outlet, twist outlet on fiver this line hooks to, and the 120 volt 20 amp outlet the converter plugs into. Has anyone else experienced similar problems? Is there something(s) I'm missing?

RE: Operational problems with new diesel pickups

I'm the OP. Just got an appointment to have the passenger air bag replaced.

We thank you all for the excellent feedback. What a great resource this is. Camping people are the best.

Operational problems with new diesel pickups

We're considering the purchase of a 2021 diesel, DRW, long bed pickup. Towing a 14,000 lb. fiver into the Rockies. Currently have a 2009 Silverado 3500HD Duramax DRW. Since it is pre DEF, it has been very reliable. The head mechanic at a local dealership actually bought a used 2009 Duramax, to avoid DEF problems. I have been told the DEF problems have been solved, but carbon build up remains. I wondering what operational problems people have experienced late model diesels, from the three different brands. Also, has anyone experienced problems with the air bags in a 2009 Silverado? Just got a recall notice on ours. Replacement air bags are not available. Thanks.
