I have to replace an inverter that was retro-fitted in an RV. (not factory equipment) The present inverter is a Go Power
3000 watt MSW. I had hoped to repair it, but the truth is, one does NOT repair a Go Power
Once it's out of warranty it becomes disposable. I couldn't get parts, and wouldn't know what to get anyway, because the manufacturer won't part with their schematics. If it's out of warranty they will be happy to sell me another one.
Disposable might be a convenience when buying diapers, but an inverter - not so much.
For the purchaser who's inclined to read Go Power's manual, it says this:
Go Power! electronic products are non-repairable, Go Power! does not perform repairs on its products nor does it contract out those repairs to a third party. Go-Power! does not supply schematics or replacement parts for any of its electronic products.
Wow. So much for technical support.
So I've been looking for another inverter that you don't throw out the first time it fails. I looked around online, and after reading the specs on an Aims inverter I called the support line for the retailer - who incidentally sells many different inverters from a bunch of familiar names, and what I was told was that there isn't an inverter manufacturer out there that provides tech support or parts or schematics unless you are prepared to spend $2000+. Essentially they all play by Go Power's
Anyone out there who can recommend an inverter? One that comes with technical support, or service? And one that can be hard-wired to a split phase 50 amp system?
