The Alliance RV Valor 2021 is a real game-changer in the world of recreational vehicles because of how well it handles electricity. Not only can you use it to power important appliances and devices, but it also opens up a world of possibilities for off-grid adventures. In this review, we’ll get into the electrical details of the Alliance RV Valor 2021. We’ll look at the parts and features that make it a top choice for RV fans who want a smooth and exciting trip.
Your RV has a 12‐volt electrical system and a 120‐volt system. The 12‐volt system is powered by battery and powers items such as the water heater, furnace, and refrigerators, as well as most of the lights. Water pumps, carbon monoxide detectors, and a number of other items will also be powered by the 12‐volt system. You’ll also find that Alliance RV has a conveniently color-coded and numbered 12‐volt wiring system. The 120‐volt system is powered by an electrical source via your power cord, a generator and in some cases, an inverter (which converts 12 volts to assist in powering the 120-volt system), and typically powers kitchen appliances, TVs, and other electrical appliances. Alliance RV is compliant with industry standards applicable at the time the RV is manufactured. Do not make unauthorized changes.
CHANGES OR ADDITIONS MADE AFTER DELIVERY MAY RESULT IN HAZARDOUS CONDITIONS. ALWAYS HAVE A PROFESSIONAL WORK ON YOUR RV.
Modifications to the RVs electrical system should only be performed by qualified technicians and should never be made without approval from Alliance RV. Should a modification be made, those changes MUST comply with current safety and code requirements.
USE THE CATION WHEN USING METAL TOOLS. IF A TOOL CONTACTS A BATTERY TERMINAL OR METAL CONNECTED TO IT, A SHORT CIRCUIT COULD OCCUR AND CAUSE INJURY.
Before working on the electrical system:
- Make sure the inverter (if equipped), is turned off before disconnecting the batteries.
- Disconnect the power cord.
- Turn off the generator (if equipped) and disable the auto start function (if equipped).
- Turn off the battery disconnect switch.
- Turn off the 120‐volt AC main circuit breaker.
- Disconnect the negative 12‐volt DC battery terminal from the battery.
The INTELI‐POWER series converter will supply “clean” power from input voltages that range from 105 ‐ 130VAC. The INTELI‐POWER series of converters are primarily designed for use with a battery; however, the output of the INTELI‐POWER converters is a regulated, filtered DC voltage that can power sensitive electronics without the need for a battery or other filtering. At normal input voltages (105 – 130VAC) the full load-rated capacity is available. At input voltages less than 105 VAC the converter may not supply full rated output capacity.
PD4500 Series ‐ The full rated load is available for load, battery charging or both. When functioning as a regulated battery charger the converter has a nominal voltage output of 13.6 VDC. The system is designed to sense voltage on the battery and automatically selects one of three operating modes (normal, boost and storage) to provide the correct charge level to the batteries.

- NORMAL MODE: Output voltage set at approximately VDC.
- BOOST MODE: If the converter senses that the battery voltage has dropped below a preset level the output voltage is increased to approximately 14.4 VDC to rapidly recharge the battery.
- STORAGE MODE: When there has been no significant battery usage for 30 hours the output voltage is reduced to 13.2 VDC for minimal water usage. When in storage mode, the output voltage will periodically increase to 14.4 VDC to help prevent sulfating of the battery plates.
IT IS IMPORTANT THAT THE FLUID LEVELS OF ANY CONNECTED BATTERY(S) BE CHECKED ON A REGULAR BASIS. ALL BATTERIES WILL “GAS” AND LOSE SOME FLUID WHEN CONTINUOUSLY CONNECTED TO ANY CHARGING SOURCE.

Power Control Center Safety Features
REVERSE BATTERY PROTECTION CIRCUIT – If a battery is accidentally hooked up backward, the converter will be protected. Easily accessible ATC-type fuses will blow when a battery is connected in reverse. Correct battery wiring and replace fuses with the same type and rating. THE DC SECTION – The DC panel features up to 18 fused positions rated for up to 30 amps, depending on the model, for accessories including ten low‐to‐full current-rated branches. These can be used for lower-current devices such as smoke and CO detectors. Each branch has an optional LED to indicate a blow branch fuse.
DISCONNECT ALL POWER TO THE CONVERTER PRIOR TO CHECKING OR CHANGING FUSES.
FOR CONTINUED PROTECTION AGAINST THE RISK OF FIRE OR ELECTRICAL SHOCK, REPLACE ONLY WITH THE SAME TYPE AND RATING OF FUSE. CONSULT A LICENSED ELECTRICAL OR RV TECHNICIAN FOR ANY NEEDED ASSISTANCE.
