2000 Safari Continental Panther 425

I have a couple of questions about this Motorhome. How do I find out what the size of my holding tanks are? They fill up so fast. And also about the inverter. It is a 2000 amp and last night while cooking in the confection oven for the first time it tripped the switch on the inverter. Do I need the inverter while hoked up to shore power? And if not how do I turn it off?

Try hopping over to the Monoco forum, and see if anyone there has the same coach.

First of all, you do not have a 2000 amp inverter, you have a 2000 watt inverter. Huge difference. Using the convection oven without shore power or generator and only the inverter could very easily over load the inverter and trip the breaker. You need to know how many watts your oven is and then add anything else you are running.

You do not need the inverter on if you are running the generator or are hooked up to shore power

When plugged into shore you should be off inverter. Shore and generator always take over from battery use automatic

There is a very active Safari owners group on Yahoo. The site has a large library of data. You must join(free) the group to access most of the site. It was very helpful when we were considering a 1999 Safari Panther.

The OP's coach wasn't built by Monaco, but by Safari Motor Corp; I'm not sure why anyone on the Monaco forum would know anything about it.

My 2000 Beaver Patriot Thunder is very similar to your MH; the chassis and drive train are the same. I would assume that you have 50 gallon black and gray tanks; that's what we have.

If your inverter is hooked up the way mine was, virtually all the interior circuits in the MH run off a single 15A circuit. The inverter's other circuit was dedicated to the microwave. Your inverter has an internal transfer switch which essentially bypasses it when you are plugged into shore power but that doesn't change the fact that things are wired through the inverter's breakers. Turning off the inverter won't change that either. We leave our inverter on all the time.

Something to keep in mind is that your inverter is a modified sine wave type. If you are not hooked to shore power some electronic items will not like working off of an MSW inverter so be cautious. But if you are connected to shore power it doesn't matter.

You do have a 2000 watt standard for those year. And it is tripping due to low house batteries and or inverter is bad. I just had to replace mine
