it triggered my curiosity on the link... great writeup!
has anyone noted that the load imbalance on the subpanel? i suppose it was from the manufacturer, but a little odd to my eyes...

here is the subpanel. the input (in green circle) is 30a, but load (in red circle) is added up to 70a. is this right?

If you tried to turn everything at once, you'd trip the CB on the inverter. Each circuit is protected by the listed CB, but none of the items would use the CB trip limit.

Thanks again, everyone, for the insight and solutions. After much dialog with the seller, the refrigerator issue has been resolved. It turns out that he just thought it wasn't working, but testing it out showed it worked just fine. He never dry camped, so wasn't very well versed in using the inverter.

You might want to check a bit more into this issue. The Samsung RF197 refrigerator which was available in the 2010-2015 period could be operated with MSW inverters and this was verified by Samsung in an online FAQ.

However, in ~2015 this model was replaced by the RF18 which, to my knowledge, uses a variable speed compressor and is very different internally from the RF197. I have no idea whether or not Samsung approves of the operation of this fridge with an MSW inverter. Unless the manufacturer agrees with the use of an MSW inverter you warranty may be at risk.

You are right. However, many inverters, including mine, have the capability for 2in/2out configurations, but they are not being utilized this way. You can conceivably have two 30A circuits on the pass-through power. I'm not sure why the manufacturers do not take advantage of this feature.

Not trying to hijack the thread, but have a question regarding the inverter. When hooking refer up to an inverter, are you not running off inverter all the time? I guess when engine is running you would be charging batteries, and when hooked up to shore power you would be charging the batteries as well. Obviously, if boondocking, you would have to periodically run the generator. Just curious, muy coach only has two house batteries as mentioned above.

Yes that correct it would run off the inverter. But since plugged in or gen charges the in / out flow has little effect on the batteries. larger coaches with inverter/ charger combined units may have pass through capabilities that sense 110 ( shore or generator ) and bypass the inverter shutting down the inverter and passing the 110 instead. In my coach the inverter must be "on" all the time in order to allow outside 110 to pass through to the inverter sub circuits.

This is the same as on your home panel ... A 100 or 200 amp main breaker can have much more when totaled up than the main breaker under it .

A lot of inverter/chargers (Magnum in general) can have the inverter turned off and still have pass-through power from shore or generator. Personally, I never turn off my inverter, but many do.
