Help with Xantrex Freedom 458

I have a 2006 Sea Breeze 8341XL with a blown Xantrex Freedom 458 1000 Watt Inverter/ Charger. I am trying to repair the unit myself. Several charger output transistors are toast and several resistors (thermistors?) are burned beyond recognition. Does anyone have access to a working charger to take a photo of the output circuit board to ascertain the value of resistors R17 and R23 marked on the circuit board? I cannot find board schematics anywhere on the net. Thanks for any help you can give.

Several years ago I had a lightening strike at home where I keep our MH on shore power 24/7. In addition to the TVs (2), the microwave and the thermostat, the Xantrex Freedom 458 inverter/charger was zapped. I removed it and sent it to the regional authorized repair center, Here's where to find them:

Take plenty pictures starting before you remove the wires and at every step so you can out it back the way it was.


Also if you MH has a "master DC fuse" you should check it too because that may be part of the problem. (causality of the lightening strike too)


Hope this helps

I'm not sure if these will help or not.

Re: Photos

Sorry, those are pics of the DC breakers in the battery control center next to the Xantrex charger. I actually need a photo of the output circuit board that is mounted inside the Xantrex charger. It has two big heat sinks on it. Thanks anyways.

Might want to give this guy a call or email. He works on these, and I keep hearing good things about his work.

Xantrex charger schematic

I prefer to repair it myself. Any help in identifying the resistor values is appreciated.
