factory-installed inverter

The factory installed 300 watt inverter's fan is howling and the unit likely will have to be replaced. Unable to find an exact replacement for the Magnadyne inverter. Has anyone replaced with a suitable unit? Thanks.

I have been looking at this Morningstar, has the option for a remote on-off switch.

SureSine » Morningstar Corporation

This is the best price I have found.

Howling is indeed the Fan. DO NOT worry about exact replacement, Just get a 300 watt TSW iverter that fits, Samulex for eample.

Inverters come (for this) in two types, TSW and MSW, TSW is best, always best (more expensive but best) in the 300 watt size all other considerations are likely non-existant.

In the 3KW size, there are other factors to consider.

Thanks. I have looked at this unit and agree. I am having a hard time finding a smaller inverter that can hard wired and switchable, pure sign wave or modified.

I plan on purchasing it soon. I have a 2000 watt MSW that power the TV and Satellite but it draws a lot of standby power just for a TV. I am currently installing a sub panel to supply power to some of the other plugs in the coach. When I get the Morningstar I'll put the TV on it and only turn on the 2000 watt when I need power to other plugs.

Our inverter fried last spring. Replaced with an AIMS Power pure sine wave #PWRI130012S. Didn't need much watts as they only power the TV's.
