    I too have no instructions for the installation of the rppi-2500w. Does any one know if this is modified sine wave or square wave?

You should use 2 red and 2 black cables, Install the inverter as close to the batteries as possible and use minimum #4ga cables #2 are better. Keep the cables as short as possible. You will need also connectors, like the ones on the truck's battery cables, attach these to both ends of each cable and crimp VERY well, connect all 4 cables to the inverter first, then the red cables at the positive battery terminals (if 4 batteries use one on each end) then the black cables to the negative posts the same way.

Yes it is better if you hook up both reds and blacks to the truck battery. It will run with only one red and black but better with both. It is also best if you will hook up one red and black to one battery then hook the other red and black to a second battery. That way you are not pulling all of your power from one battery.

What causes a red light on an TB Wood Etrac XFC 1001 inverter and the motor will not start Is there an internal fuse Do I need 3 phase for the input


Is that red light flashing or continous lighting? You do not need 3 phase input for that model. Do you have the input wiring diagram? If the red light is flashing maybe the emergency stop input is active. If the red light is on continously then it maybe in stop mode or torque limit, ask electrician to check the wiring.
