What a surprise today!
I had talked with a tech from Magnum Energy yesterday and he told me he would send out a new ME/RD Series Control Board. This was at about 1:00 pm yesterday.
Today at about noon, UPS shows up at my door with the board! Talk about quick!!!
I followed the detailed instructions and installed it in the inverter. Not very difficult, but, I had to be careful not to have any static electricity, or any power to the coach. So, I disconnected the batteries, shore power and shut off the Coach and Chassis switches.
Replacement was very straight forward with the excellent instructions that were send along with them.
Yesterday, this is what the display showed:
This is the ME/RD Series Control Board that I took out:
Looking at the back of the board, notice the discoloration around the capacitor. On the opposite side is the connection for the 16-pin Ribbon Connector
After I buttoned everything back up and hooked up the batteries, I crossed my fingers and "flicked the switch"!
Sorry to disappoint! No smoke or fire!
It started like it was supposed to - no issues.
I will wait until tomorrow to do any microwave and generator testing to make sure that it cured the problem.
Looks very promising at this point.
I gotta give Magnum credit. They have excellent customer service, as others have mentioned.
I will be sending back the old board in the morning and I will give them a call.
