Wellllllll, that's certainly not what I was talkin about!

Amps, not voltage...

Blowing breakers in your power source, not about power to one leg or both...

Dialing down the Magnum controller amperage limits how much the inverter will ask of your source. So long as you control yourself and don't run other stuff in the coach, the batteries and phantom draws will live long & prosper even on a 15A source.

I went through a similar situation with battery behavior like that. If they are falling below 50% Depth of Discharge (12.05 V) continuously, then the batteries are probably shot...or you have 1 (or more) in the bank that is causing the problems. I had 2 in my bank of 8 go bad and they caused all the headache. Slides would time out, jacks wouldn't fully retract, Aqua-Hot was constantly popping it's Low Voltage trip. Once I pulled those 2 out and just ran 1 bank of 4 and 1 bank of 2 things got better. But I never got full performance back until I replaced all 8 with new. Learned just how bad the old bank of 8 actually was once I had all new put in.
