I would be careful when installing a xantrex. I have a 03 39wd that came with a xantrex. I could not plug into a gfi controlled service without tripping same. If the refrigerator is wired to the inverter it will back feed out the shorepower cord due to a normally closed relay in the inverter. Winnebago new about this and put a large capacity resistor in line to reduce the amperage. I would suspect that is the reason winnebago switched to the dimension inverter in 04. The dealer corrected the problem by running a new outlet to the refrigerator by passing the inverter. The downside is it does not make ice when you are not plugged in or have the gen set running. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>
I had the same problem with my Xantrex. The problem was not with the Xantrex but how it is wired. The refrigerator, central vac, & dishwasher have to have their neutrals and grounds connected to which ever panel that supplies their power. I did not have a dishwasher. The hot lead was caped off in both panels but the unused neutral was attached to the neutral bar in both boxes which tripped the GFCI. After disconnecting one end of the unused neutral wire no more tripping the GFCI. Xantrex told me they connect the neutral and ground for safety reasons when the inverter powers down. For that reason the 2 panels have to be completely isolated from each other. I am a happy camper with mine.
