Three minute delay on inverter activating

The last two times when I turn on main power switch (in battery compartment) and then initiate the inverter there is a 2 to 4 minute delay before the inverter will activate. I don't know what is causing the delay? Has anyone else experience similar issue?

I have a surge protector and it takes 123 seconds to let the power pass as the computer chip is scheduled to check the curcuits before the power goes on and ruins anything.

you can turn on the inverter at the magnum display... it usually starts right away.

Do you go without insurance for you home, car, RV, medical, etc? I think not! A surge protector is nothing more than insurance! The average person hopes he/she never needs to use their insurance. If you have the money to replace some expensive electronics continue to plug into unknown sources of electricity at campgrounds without a surge protector...

I'll agree with you on that one. ! (I know that surprise you lol).

On our 2008 coach we did not have a surge protector. New campground. Wired wrong. Burnt everything on one side of coach. Microwave-two TV's-two boxes under the bed (don't remember what they were) But anyway it cost campgrounds insurance $3,500. And we could alway notice a slight burnt wire smell.

So it will be surge protector for me!!' Always.

back to the inverter........

Is this a "new" issue? Or is the whole unit new to you? In other words did it used to just snap right on?

And I would assume you are talking about being on battery power with no external power applied?

Does your 12 volt work right away, but the 110 comes later?

The large power switch in the battery bay is for the chassis batteries and the power switch by the door is the coach battery disconnect relay. If both are off you may need to manually turn on the inverter function at the magnum control panel. If it is working properly the inverter should come right on.

Started RV'ing in 1957 with my parents, got my own TT in 1969 at 21. In all those years I've never had any electrical protection other than an Autoformer I used for a while till I found I didn't need it and have yet to burn anything out due to power problems. Now the Magna pretty much has everything and I'm glad it does with all the electronics it has.
