I'm at a loss as to why prices are all over the place with these inverters. The one mentioned is near the top, very expensive and not even a pure sine wave unit at that. Just for the sake of comparison, here's a 3000w and would really like knowing what the differences might be..... Go Power! GP-3000HD 3000-Watt Heavy Duty Modified Sine Wave Inverter : Amazon.com : Automotive
I have a smaller 1000w unit that I bought very reasonable and it's been performing well for years now.

Good luck with the new power supply system, seems like a good unit for the money. However in an earlier post, you said your transfer switch was faulty also, just wondered how that was diagnosed and did you replace that also?

Libero...I believe that the transfer switch he was referring to was the one that is built in to the Xantrex inverter he had rather than a separate unit. There is a similar transfer switch in his new Magnum that goes from inverting to the 100 dcamp charge mode in 16 milliseconds.

Magnum is always a good choice. The only caution I have for you is this. On another discussion in irv2 it was mentioned that electric blankets don't work on MSW inverters. I guess the control is too cheap to know what to do with all the noise in the power from the inverter. I can't say if any other specific thing is bothered by the MSW power.

In any case, happy trails and may your power live on.

Rick

The transfer switch is built into the new inverter / converter.
It was a little pricey, but I now have peace of mind that it will work.
Having the chassis pm'ed and all fluids changed and Im off. Hoping to head out this weekend.

I'm glad to hear that all is back together. I think all RV inverters have built in transfer switches. And they do fail. But, when unfamiliar with the terminology and technology things can be a bit confusing. Most of us are never concerned when things are working and then we scramble to understand when we are in trouble. Oh how I resemble that concept. Over the years I have started trying to understand the coach systems a bit better before I have a failure. Failures will happen, you can count on it. It just makes life a bit easier to deal with if some understanding of the failed system is already in place. At the moment it doesn't seem to help, but it always does.

Have a great weekend and my the power be with you.

Rick

Safe travels. The Black Hills are beautiful. Snow is a dirty word to us and we head south when it threatens. Growing up in the North Country of NE and spending my working career around Boston, my retirement years are to be SNOW FREE!

Blessings,
Rick
