Trace SW 5548 output ac voltage is 164 volts, under a medium to heavy load it will lower to a 142 or 144 volt output.


Is your 12 volt source able to supply 1500 watts of power? You can't draw more watts out than you put in. What is your 12volt source? A standard automotive alternator cannot make close to 1500 watts.

My inverter is Roadpro 1500 but cannot power 700W microwave


How good is the connection to the battery? there are a lot of amps that have to flow fast and clamps just don't do it, lugged cables do!

My inverter 1000w is not working.


Sadly replacement is the best option.

The better inverters are a pure-sine wave would recommend a 1500w it is better quality and will be a better replacement for you 1000w.

Hope this tip helps.

Went u turn it on the red lite comes on and wont turn green and wont work its a road pro rppi-1500w


Sadly replacement is the best option. It is just not cost effective to get the inverter repaired.

The cost starts out about 150.00.

Best option is to take it back to where you purchased it and hope you can get a new one.

Hope this tip helps.

Am a seven each power inverters owner.

Recommendations: Purchase a Pure sine inverter 1500 watt. We have had one of these running 24 seven for almost a year now.

I just bought a RoadPro 2500 and i want to buy like a dorm fridge how many watts or volts size would work??


If you are referring to the RoadPro RPPI-250
  • 2000 Watts Continuous Power
  • 2500 Watts Power Output @ 10 Minutes
  • 5000 Watts Peak Power Output.
  • A small fridge will use about 500 -700 watts, with startup wattage at around 2000watts.
  • So, a dorm fridge will work fine.
  • the RoadPro converts DC to AC voltage, so a regular 120 volt dorm fridge will work.

    Xantrex 2412 will not open my Chamberlain Lift Master Prof. door


    That must be a pretty big door opener. Problem is probably the motor's starting current draw. Most AC induction motors pull 5 to 7 times their rated running current when starting from a dead stop. (about 7,820 watts) That's much more than the surge capacity of a 2.4 Kw inverter. Sounds like you need a bigger inverter or a smaller door motor.

    Trace DR 2412 inverter won't run older front-loading washer


    IF your washing machine is a conventional model with a common AC induction motor, waveform isn't the problem. Normal starting current for typical AC induction motors is usually 5 to 7 times the rated running current. Even though that current draw only lasts a fraction of a second, it's marginal for a 2.4 kw inverter's surge capacity. The trick of switching on other small loads (preferably resistive loads like incandescent bulbs) before starting the washer may help. Another area to check is your battery cables and connections The inverter pulls a huge amount of current to produce it's max surge output and even a little resistance in the battery circuit may cause the inverter to trip off. If you've got one of the fancy new electronic controlled washers with a D.C. motor, (so called energy saving or high efficiency models) then the waveform may be an issue and a pure sine wave might be needed.

    Inverter shut off and turn back on..


    Sounds like one of two things are happening:

    1. Microwave is drawing too much current, causing internal voltage monitoring circuitry in inveter to go into protection mode.

    or

    2. RFI from microwave is somehow being few into inverter causing similar circumstance.

    Can't get power to my RoadPro 1500 DC to AC Power Inverter


    I have had this same problem with several power inverters over time. The problem is usually one of three things.

    Those starting with the simplest.

    1. Too much current being drawn on the inverter.
    Solution (Check appliances that are plugged in and make sure they are not drawing more than 1200 watts. If they are unplug the appliance that is using the most current and get an inverter that is more suited to your power needs.)

    2. Some power inverters have fuses built on to them. Sometimes multiple fuses. Sometimes, one fuse may burn out leaving one intact. When this happens even small items draw too much current and over load the inverter.
    Solution (Replace the fuses)

    3. Improper installation. Inverters draw a lot of current. You must use the propper wire size for the inverter. I would recomend at least an eight guage wire directly fused and hooked directly to the battery. Of course like with all things the bigger the wire the better the flow of electricity.

    If it is not one of those things stop into a truck stop electronics shop and have the person diagnose it.

    Hope that helps.
