What do you think of Progressive Dynamic PD4060KV RV Inteli-Power 4000 Series Power Center 60A ?

here i am installing a similar panel in my bus

http://www.skoolie.net/forums/f27/bo...html#post78993

too many wires in too small a space. i hate it... its a cheapo plastic case. and i bypassed 4 or 5 circuits just because its a pita. those 4 or 5 got their own fuse wired straight to the battery. to this day i still havent been able to tuck those wires in so that i can put the cover back on it.

The 4060 power panel has a little higher charging capacity (60 vs 45 amp) and a 1000 watt input vs 750 for the 4045. Which one you choose depends on how much juice you'll be using.

Turf - I wired mine from the back and had no trouble at all. I'd buy another one without hesitation.

maybe so, my inexperience cause many of my difficulties

you know i used big fat 10g wire for the DC circuits to avoid voltage loss, and the circuit board was just to flimsy for the heavy gauge wire. i would have had better luck with smaller wire, or more patience

My Progressive Dynamics panel had wiring pigtails exiting out the back of the unit that made connecting the various circuits easy. If yours didn't have those pigtails then hooking everything up would be quite a hassle. There's not a lot of room to work in those small panels.

10 ga may be oversized, but you'll never overload it.

If you want 50A AC service, I would think that the 4500 series would serve you better as it supports a 50 Amp service connection.

All-in-One 240V, 50 Amp AC/DC Power Distribution Panel

Amazon lists the 4590 for $397, but you can find it cheaper here:

PD4590 50 Amp Power Center with 90 Amp Converter/Charger
