Just got a notice that certain inveters need a firmware change. It looks like a remote possibility of a problem occuring but, I will have it done while here at Newmar.


Quote from notice:
"Issue:
By way of exlpanation, if a sustained overload is applied in inverter mode an error in revision 2.01 of the RVGS firmware allows for the possibility of a transformer overheating. The required overload is in the range of 27-30 ampere AC Output and must persist for 30 minutes or ore before overheating occurs. We consider this scenario highly remote given that it requires both high power overloads (approximately 115% - 135% of the inverter rating depending on the model) and enough battery capacity to run the overloaded inverter for that extended duration."
