Thanks for the update.
About three years back ,when I last installed one, the 9100 series came with the Charge Wizard incorporated and the Manual operation pendant was an option. I don't think that the 9130 was around then.
It's commendable that Scamp
has moved away from the lesser brands of converters, but unfortunate that they still force the buyer to purchase what shoud be standard equipment. Maybe they are taking lessons from the Airlines. Makes me now wonder what they are using for AC and DC distribution.
BTW: Here is a link to the Charge Wizard that can be added to certain PD converters.

From the PD website
The PD9130, 30 amp power converter is designed to provide reliable filtered DC power to all recreational vehicle 12-volt lighting and appliance circuits. The PD9130 converter also provides safe and rapid recharging of RV batteries. Built-in features such as electronic current limiting, reverse battery protection, high voltage protection, low voltage operation, and over temperature shut down ensure long term reliability. The built-in TCMS (Total Charge Management System) connector allows the RV manufacturer, dealer, or owner to easily add the Charge Wizard. The Charge Wizard is a microprocessor-controlled system that constantly monitors the battery voltage and
use to ensure a rapid; yet, safe, recharge. The Charge Wizard can select one of three charging voltages and one of four operating modes depending on the condition and use of the battery.
