Question about Eliminator MotoMaster Mobile Power Inverter 700w

Open Question

I purchased a 011-1871-4 1000 watt motomaster power inverter and have installed it in my motorhome. The (very poor) instructions require that a ground cable be hooked up, attaching it to the ground cable screw on the inverter. This unit does not have a ground cable screw on it. What does this mean and where would you attach this ground cable. Thanks

your inverter needs to cool at all times , if the fan does not work,try buying a small standing fan to blow cool air to you machine, it is possible that your heater is making the inverter to over heat please avoid using the heater on the inverter

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.

What does ocp mean on the 3000 motomaster power inverter


Unit is overheating.
1. Check fans are running. and unit is in a cool place where air can flow freely.
2. If fans not working try using an external fan to see if the OCP error goes way.

Reduce the load on the outlets (Disconnect some stuff i possible)

Motomaster has two pos and neg connections for batteries cables do i need to hook up both before i can use it


I have the Motomaster 1750W. It just beeps if I try to turn it on with only one set of wires connected. When I run a pair of +/- cables from each of the connections, even to the same battery, it works find.

I have 5000W inverter & hooked up to my battery power supply.display is saying "l up" .i think it means lock up.i was wondering how to unlock.


Could it be L.U.P. it's really L.V.P. but the V looks like a U. If it is it's low voltage protection. If the incoming voltage drops below 10.5 volts, it begins to flash. If the voltage drops below 10 volts it shouts down. If you supply it with 12 v it should restart. If you don't have manual you can view/download one from www.cobra.com.
The low voltage could caused by low battery. Poor connetions. Wire too small for load being supplied.Inverters over 1500 watts will require #1/0 or larger cable, in the shortest possible length. NOTE: Cable size recommendations may vary among inverter brands and models; check the Owner's Manual for the model you purchase before you buy the wire for it.

Lost AC charger and lighter adapter - need replacements


Although the MotoMasters are quite popular and are excellent products in most folk's opinions, parts are quite difficult to find. Complete units are in abundance.

Your charger doesn't have to be branded MotoMaster. And charger of approximately 500 to 750 mA and approximately 14 volts will work nicely.

From time to time Canadian Tire have some parts or open box sales. You might check with them. Hope this helps!

Want To Install a 1250 W Power Inverter on a Class A Motorhome


You are definitely on the right track. When you choose your power inverter consider the following: buy the inverter for around 40% more of your anticiapted load. You will need a double pole transfer switch to isolate the inverter from the generator(and visa versa). A simple double throw double pole switch with fuse or breaker protection should do it. You wouldn't necessarily have to isolate the curbside circuit as the double pole double throw switch would simply be switching the power from the existing generator to your new inverter for only the roadside circuit; i.e. you don't need to worry about the curbside power source as it will always be connected to the other branch circuit. Even if your generator or other source came on the system would be protected no matter what the the roadside configuration was set to as only one source of the 2 roadside power sources would be connected at any give time to the roadside circuit. The six dots represent the connecions for the double pole, double throw switch; shown supplying the new inverter to the roadside circuit while the source from the existing generator or inverter is disconnected via this switch from the roadside circuit:

existing * *------* new power inverter; switched to source
* *------*
^
Middle 2 dots represent your roadside circuit and represent the "throw arm" of the switch. Safe and simple! If you don't have a voltage meter for your batteries you can purchase one for a few bucks. Just run it across the terminals so you will know battery condition as it is being drained (you may already have this indicator) You can find a transfer switch at an electrical supply place, maybe even Lowes. Make sure you get the switch that will be in a protected enclosre. The enclosurre can be purchased seperately if you can't find the switch/enclosure package together.

Good luck....gary
