I have some bad news for you, the Magnum Inverter (Heart Interface also) has a 25 amp transfer relay inside. I found this out the hard way when the relay in my Heart fried along with the wiring to and from the relay. I bought a used Magnum ME-2012 and as I was checking it out I opened it up and found the same 25 amp transfer relay as in the Heart. I also noticed an extra 25 amp relay on the mother board not being used and with a little simple rewire job, I now had two 25 amp relays in parallel for a total of 50 amps of pass through relay capability. I still have the 30 Circuit Breaker for protection so all I did was bring my system capability up to the true 30 amp system rating.

Well Gang,
As you've all read, it was surely a learning experience for us. And, it appears that some of you might have been enlightened about your own systems too. While it was a bit nerve racking at the time, I'm glad our little *mishap* did maybe do some good in educating others about the potential of "Houston, we have a problem". I have also learned from others mishaps on this forum. What a team!!!!!!!!!
Scott

Thanks Scott,
I just put a sticker note on my main circuit breaker panel about this JIC.

You're quite welcome Sir. As stated, it was definitely a learning experience for us. It's ALWAYS nice when a simple fix, can avert your basic catastrophe.
