20 Most Recent Coleman Cable Power Inverter PMP1200 Questions & Answers

What does it invert?Higher voltage to lower or what?Either way,with 1200 watts being inverted,it is not a good idea to charge a battery with that kind of power.Batteries need to be charged low and slow.We are talking milliamps for hours.Fast charging a battery results in a very good chance of explosion,which is never good.Acid from the battery will go everywhere.

the beeping sound is due to battery low voltage

An incandescent lamp that is cold takes approximately 10 times the running current initially. The inverter MAY not be able to start the 500 watt lamp if its protection circuits sense the very low starting resistance of the lamp.

Test the inverter on some other device first.

There are some fuses at the output. plus the protection on the AC panel. Start at the Inverter output and check fuses and power there, then work your way out.

I have an older pmp1200 and NO, you don't have to take the back off. Those spade fuses are for an empty RV power buse position where you will connect the inverter to fuse the DC side. The PMP 1200 has pertection circuts inside for overload, but if a short on DC input were to occure it would not pertect your buse (and of course the battery) from causing a posible fire situation. Since the DC cable size needed for the maximum curent draw on this unit is so large (4 gage), I would recomend a direct battery conection fused via a fuse holder that can handele the max current (10 amps). Check with your local battery stores for such items. Warning: don't use fusing over this 10 amp rating because if the unit happens to short, it could start the battery to over heat and cause a fire or battery explosion.

There are several ways to do this and several complications that may arise. That said, here is a brief outline of one method:
1. Locate the music folder on your PC.
2. Insert your flash drive into the USB port (allowing time for it to install or access drivers).
3. Click on Start, select My Computer. Locate your flash drive (most likely list as Removable Disk or the brand name of the flash drive). Double click on that icon.
4. Right click the folder or music files you found in step 1. Select "Send to" and choose "Removable Disk." The transfer process may take several minutes depending upon the number of files you are transferring. After the transfer is complete, click on the USB flash drive icon on the Windows task bar and select Stop or Eject. The PC will advise you when it is safe to remove the flash drive.

Here is a link to other ways to put music on a Flash Drive:
