No. I misread your statement. I thought the price difference was 90 bucks. As long as the inverter holds up you did well. I had mine rebuilt just to have it fail again a couple of years later. For me it was not worth the aggravation. Where I went wrong was buying a Xantrex not knowing the model was discontinued. It was still advertised on their website. When I called Xantrex support because the temperature sensor circuit was causing my AGM batteries to overcharge they said simply to disconnect it and ignore the alarm. If the unit didn't work after that, throw it out and buy a replacement. $2000 and three years life.
