Question about Xantrex Technology RS3000 Sine Wave Inverter / Charger

1 Answer

Same problem I have problems getting the generator to work since we installed the Xantrex RS3000. it takes forever now for the microwave to kick in etc. Not to mention I've popped 5 fuses on the inverter at a hefty price to replace which my installer has informed me is not under warranty? Grrr. The fuses seem to pop only when we use the microwave. That sucks when I have to fire up the generator just to pop something in the microwave for 2 minutes. And now the generator has to run sometimes for 5 minutes or longer before the microwave kicks in. My RV is a 2006 Pace Arrow in mint condition. This kind of sucks.

First make sure your your installation phasing is correct. You can easily do this by first checking the power at the micro wave socket as explained below with the gen. or land power and then see if you get the same reading to ground connection to connection with the inverter on if it is different swap your input AC from your inverter to your power grid

If that is OK

Check to make sure your microwave socket and or/ the device plug are phased properly to ground. The white wire should have 0 ohm continuity to the device ground. The wall socket should have 110vac between ground and the black(small hot side) wire and 0 vac to the common (big white) side.

Xantrex 458 freedom....has stopped charging house batteries off of engine alternator. Alternator is showing that it works (dash gauge). It does charge while on shore power or generator....but not charging...

Fis\rst of all is the inverter supplying 120 VAC? when turned on?. If so the inverter seems to be working.I think your problem is in the truck alternator/charging system. The inverter is independent of this charger..

Rv2012 Inverts but dosnt charge

I have the same problem with my Freedom Marine 25. Assuming it worked previously and you have checked all the obvious things (generator/shore power breaker contacts, etc.), the Xantrex tech says it is likely a small 1/4 amp slow blow fuse on the AC sensing card inside the box, but that the AC transformer may have shorted to cause the fuse to blow. The internal arrangement may be different but remove the cover screws and locate the 2"x2" transformer on the AC sensing card for signs of arcing or charring. If you have a meter, check the transformer coils and if it reads significantly less than ~ 130 ohms, that is likely your problem, which will require taking the unit to an Xantrex authorized service center, since Xantrex does not provide parts or schematics to the general public.

I am installing an RS3000 inverter in my RV. Everything works fine until i reconnect the chassis ground to the battery and then I get an inverter fault. I have checked every connection multiple times and...

Please remove the belt off the altanator then turn the key on if the altanator spins with the key on in the run postion then yo have a bad diode trio in the altanator, if that checks out them you need to test all wall scokets unplug the refrigerator and see if you get the fault code also unplug the lights one at a time to see you get a fault code. the most common problem would be the florsent bulbs. hope this helps.

Non-operational in RV when Onan generator and Xantrex inverter are on

Are you still under warranty with your RV? If so, take your RV back to them and try to get this problem fixed through them. You know more about electronics than I do (LOL) however, I do believe the RV sales/repair should be taking care of this issue for you.

I on the other hand own the Majestic brand washer and dryer and I am very dissapointed with them. The washer is broken already and is only 15 months old. Ugh!

Good luck, I hope your issue is a simple fix.
