If you are asking if this was the correct polarity, then no. In A/C wiring the black wire is hot, which is sometimes the source of confusion. So...

D/C (Direct Current, found in your car)
Red = Positive (+)
Black = Negative (-)

A/C (Alternating Current, found in your house)
White = Common
Black = Hot
Green(or solid copper wire) = Ground

If you have already hooked up your inverter the wrong way, you've most likely fried it. If it is still okay, then you've got yourself a good unit.

COLEMAN INVERTER PMP1200 JUST BEEPS WHEN TURNED ON


It is most likely the low voltage alarm. Suggest connecting when the car is running with no load (110 volts not connected). If the alarm continues turn the unit off and on to reset.

Hope this helps?

Inverter Protection Features
• Short Circuit Protection. The inverter will automatically shut down until short is removed.
• Low Voltage Alarm. An alarm will sound when the voltage from the battery discharges to 10.5 +/- 0.5 volts DC. This is an indication that the battery needs to be recharged.
• Over Voltage Protection. The RED LED Indicator Light will illuminate and the inverter will automatically turn itself off when the input exceeds 16.5 +/- 1 volt DC.
• Under Voltage Protection. The RED LED Indicator Light will illuminate and the inverter will automatically turn itself off when the input is less than 10.0 +/- 0.5 volts DC.
• Overload Protection. The RED LED Indicator Light will illuminate and the inverter will automatically turn itself off when the continuous draw of the equipment being operated exceeds 1200 watts or the surge draw of the equipment exceeds 2400 watts.
• Thermal Protection. The RED LED Indicator Light will illuminate and the inverter will automatically turn itself off when the circuit temperature exceeds 150° F

I was given a coleman Powermate 400 watt inverter I hooked it up to a car battery and the fault light immediately started flashing I do not have a manual based off this being given to me.


I'm sure you can easily get a PDF manual on-line somewhere.
My guess is that sometimes these inverters will give an error if you do not have something plugged in creating an electrical draw

If you are only tring to run a TV off this inverter, it appears you may have a defective unit. If you have had this inverter for only a short time, contact the dealer/store where you bought it and seek their advice. If you have had it for 90 days or more you can still contact the dealer, but maybe it would be best to contact the coleman company. You can go to their website nad find out how to contact the division that deals with this particular type of product.

I attach my inverter with custom battery cables and it powers up. As soon as I plug in an extension cord (any cord)it starts beeping. I don't even have anything plugged into the other end.


please check the voltage of the battery may be the voltage of battery is low or use the multi meter and check DC volts before conneceting the battery and after conneceting once more check the DC volts it could slove the problem
the beeping sound is due to battery low voltage
what is the DC input of the Inverter check the battery hook up if the inverter is of example DC 24 volts please check what is the input

I have no instalation instructions for my 2500 rppipower inverter


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.
