Maybe you should consider changing the breakers, it's my hunch that everything inside would be the same gauge and size on their current units that have the higher rated breaker.

Maybe watch it real close the first time you use it, feeling the sides for excessive heat.

I wondered about that too, but the question is why they put in 35 amp CB's to start with-surely if it can handle 50 amps you wouldn't do that. Many other posts have indicated that they got good answers from the Franks people-I wonder what has changed? I tried talking to the Hughes people about my older Hughes unit one time, and they didn't even want to talk to me. I suspect both are small companies, and it may depend on which person you reach when you call.

I asked about just replacing the breakers but the guy there (it's no longer Frank BTW, it's Doug) said that the internal electronics would not support that size increase.

I am going to tone down my criticism of this product. Got carried away and had an on-line exchange with the owner and conducted myself improperly. The devise works as designed, not as advertised.

I will dispose of this unit and I will replace it with another manufacturer's product.

Wow, I am really sorry to hear about your troubles with that product Ron, but I appreciate you posting your real life experiences with them. You may have saved someone a lot of heartache.


Marty and Diane, Fulltiming!
