SOURCE: Wiring the 1750 watt eliminator direct to the main panel

DO NOT DO THIS! If I understand you correctly you want to have three ways to have 110 power in your motor home--- (1)Vehicle 12V to inverter to main panel. (2)Generator to main panel. (3)plug the main panel into 110V. If any two of these are connected at the same time and they are both live, somethings going to blow. That's because with AC, the two sources must be synchronized in their cycles very precisely. The utility company connects their power plants together on the grid only with the aid of precise controls. But the really serious problem is the same reason they invented transfers switches for home generators -- if you were connected to (3) and the power went out, and you connected (1) or (2) without disconnecting the dead (3), you will backfeed power to the line outside and you just might kill the lineman who is trying to fix the power outage.

SOURCE: I got an error of ER 05. What does that mean?

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

E05: Flashing Fault LED: Flashing Alarm: Beeping = Output on inverter is shortcircuit

- Disconnect your output terminals and see if you still have the code. This is telling you there is an external short.
- If you still have the error with the output terminals disconnected start looking for internal inverter shorts to the output connector. (Chaffed wire / hot wire signs / internal + lead ground)
- If you have Circuit Breakers / fuses on your output side open all the CB/s or remove all fuses then turn on the CB's / install fuses one at a time until you note the Er05 error. Then troubleshoot the shorted circuit with an Ohm Meter.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

SOURCE: My husband hard wired an

There are inverters (the cheapest of which are often a "square" or "saw-tooth" wave), Modified Sine Wave inverters and Pure Sine Wave (also called True Sine Wave) inverters.

The most expensive of these is the Pure Sine Wave inverter. This is because it provides the cleanest, most desirable power and has the type of wave form that looks most like the wave form that is delivered to your home by the utility via wires. A lot of older mechanical devices don't care so much about the wave form - these are devices like electric heaters, toasters, incandescent lamps, cook tops, etc. Today's newer devices have a fairly large amount of electronics and even processors in them. It is these components that are more finicky about what the wave form looks like. if they don't get what they expect, undesirable results occur. Some aren't even noticeable (but they may be causing heat or other issues) and others still balk at the wave form altogether and don't operate correctly at all.

Overloading any inverter will also cause problems. It is best to reduce the load on the inverter whenever possible, and to never run it at more than 80% of rated capacity. It is also possible that one of your other loads on the inverter doesn't like the wave form and is causing interference back on the power line - and it is visible on the TV screen and / or audible on the TV speakers. Try disconnecting devices while monitoring the TV to see if that is what is happening in your RV.

I hope this helps and good luck. Please rate my reply. Thanks.

3000 watt eliminator with OLP and LUP CODES any Ideas


Assuming you have a 12VDC In 120V AC out 3000W inverter.
LUP indicates battery voltage is low, so firstly make sure:

1. You 12V battery is good, it's large enough a minimum of 75AH and probably much larger is recommended and it's fully charged.
2. Verify you are using the correct size copper wires from battery to the Inverter DC INPUT(s). If you keep wire short the wire size can be smaller, but if the DC input wires are longer then you will need to use thicker copper wires.

At MAx load you would be taking 250 AMP from battery, so for a 5% Volatge drop of .6 V for a 10 ft length of cables from battery to Inverter you would need to use a 1AWG copper cable.

http://www.calculator.net/voltage-drop-calculator.html?material=copper&wiresize=0.4066&voltage=12&phase=dc&noofconductor=1&distance=10&distanceunit=feet&eres=125&x=37&y=8

OLP is a overload condition, which means you may have to many high powered AC powered things connected to the Inverters AC outlets or maybe something that has large start up surge, ie devices large electric motors.

Or it could be all due to a faulty Inverter.

Generator not powering RV


You need to find out if the generator is providing any power at all, when its not connected to the RV, get it to power something else. If it does that OK you have to suspect the inverter or some of the wiring in the RV, did any wiring near the inverter get wet?

Dc lo keeps blinking on the fridge and lights go low in rv, power converter middle light is blinking green


The battery is not being charged OR is no longer accepting a charge.

The inverter does not charge the battery. An inverter consists of components that first convert the battery's low (12) volt "direct current" (DC) power used to power automotive devices to a higher (120) volt "alternating current" (AC) power that is required by nearly all household appliances to operate properly.

The charging of the battery occurs when either the RV's engine is running and spins the alternator, etc. OR when connected to another charging device - whether it is permanent or portable.

With the RV engine running, there should be about 13.5 - 15 volts, DC on the battery posts or terminals. This voltage is coming fromt he RV alternator and since it is greater than the 12 volt battery, "charges" the battery. If you use a portable charger - that is part of a generator, or plugs into a power port at a camp site, etc. this will charge the battery.

When none of these things is happening, the battery voltage will slowly drop. Once it is at ~10 volts, it is "dead" and will need to be recharged.

The battery will no longer accept a charge if a "cell" inside it has "opened" or "shorted", or if the battery is at the end of its useful life. The battery state can be checked quickly by any mechanic.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Hi. I plugged a 600w oven grill and a kettle which is 110w into a 1000w Ring power 1024 inverter 24v-240. And now it dont seem to work. The inverter is wired straight to the battery.


Does it work if you plug in just your smallest appliance 110W?. How about just your 600W appliance What size wire are you using to supply power to the inverter? The inverter will draw about 30 amps from the battery with your load. You need to use wires as large as a number 8 from the battery to the inverter. The length should be as short as possible but could be 20 ft away. My inverter is a 2000 Watt continous and I use welding cable size 0 at about 3ft max between the battery and the inverter.

WILL A TRACE 2012 INVERTER RUN A 15000 BTU RV AIR CONDITIONER


According to specs, they will take a 44 amp AC power surge. Obviously number and type of batteries as well as battery condition , etc, plugged in, not plugged in to outside hydro, or generator all come in to play here, but a 15,000 BTU roof AC will only draw, 15-17Amps AC when compressor kicking in, ( or less on some new models) and should level out at 12 -13 amp draw after. As well, this will depend on proper wiring to and from main panel as well as AC unit, and incoming voltage, AC unit condition ( cleaned and maintained properly) etc.

Inverter


Are you wanting to install circuit breakers on the DC (battery) side? If so, you won't need them to protect the unit as it is already fused. But, it would be a good idea to install them as close to the battery so that if a wiring fault develops in te cable going to the inverter, it would be protected as well.

For the AC side, breakers are sized according to the wire size, not the capacity of the inverter. But, you can always use a smaller size if you want to try and protect the inverter from overloads as well. Your inverter is rated at 1000 watts, which is a bit over 8 amps of AC current. Use a 10 amp circuit breaker, and don't use smaller than 16ga wire for short distances. Use larger guage wire (12ga is 20amp residential requirement, 14ga is 15amp residential requirement) for the longer runs.

This inverter is not designed for a permanent install, its not intended to be run continuously. There are inverters designed for this, you can find an idea of product selection at rv suppliers, alternative energy shops, etc.

I need to install my inverter 18 feet from my battery


a very thick one,,,like a baby battery lead on your car,,,its a very bad idear to have it so far away from the battery point, you would be far better off finding a closer place to put it as the volts drop off would have a big drop in out put on the inverter,,,also thats one big mother of a fridge to use 3000 watts????
you need a small power station to run it,,and if it do use 3000 watts your inverter is far to small to do the job, read the out put plate on the inverter,,it says 3000 watts max? not all the time,,,,thats about 2000 watts realy running contently and the whire to feed the inverter will need to carry about 30 amps so your car battery is say 90 amp hours plus the volts drop off, you would be lucky to have the inverter running for 3-4 hours before your battery go's is very flat on you!
