Need help recommendations

I have a Xantrex Freedom 458 Inverter/Charger and it is giving me a lot of trouble. I'm not blaming Xantrex but the installation. I had it installed in a shop in Boise. Took them a couple months to figure it out and never did really work right. A year later it died. Warranty for 2.5 years but I lost my receipt. Shop did not keep one either. So I bought another new one and had a different shop install it. The guy said it was wired all wrong. Hadn't disconnected the factory converter and they were fighting each other. Well, it died the first night of my first camping trip. What I need is to find out where I can take this, hopefully somewhere in the NW, where they actually KNOW how to wire them in. I've talked to guys that have used this same unit for years with zero problems. I kept the receipt this time!! But if it wasn't a manufacturer flaw I'll have to buy my 3rd one!! :( Thanks so much, DJ

RE: Downsizing to smaller rig, battery capacity

Thanks everyone. Guess I will stick with what I have. Just tired of dragging a trailer around. My current set up works good running both machines. Volt meter at 12.9 when I go to bed and 12.4 when I get cup. This is with four Trojan T145's, 450 watts of solar and a couple hours of gen run time for a kick start in the AM. I am having trouble with the Xantrex Inverter/charger tho. But I should start a different thread for that.

Downsizing to smaller rig, battery capacity

The one I'm looking at holds two standard size 12 volt batteries. I have to run a CPAP @ 3.75 amps and an oxygen concentrator @ 7.9 amps for about 8 hours. I don't know if two standard size batteries could handle this and hoping someone could help me out. Thanks so much, DJ

RE: Anyone remember?

Found them! Best Converters. Moved to Alabama 2 years ago. Seemed like a lot of TC'ers like PJ9 liked them. PJ9 isn't right. He is a boat Captain. Anyway, mystery solved. Thanks.

Anyone remember?

There was an online business that dealt in converters/inverters and smart chargers. IIRC they were located in Meridian ID. I somehow lost their info. Thanks in advance. DJ

Flat towing a pre 2011 Ford Ranger

If this has been posted before I could not find it. I would like to buy a Ranger for a future toad. I Googled it but got too many mixed answers. Please advise if this is correct. A RWD Ranger with manual transmission can be towed in neutral with no problems. A RWD with auto transmission you need a driveline disconnect. A 4X4 with either transmission needs a transfer case pump as there is no neutral on the transfer case. Checking the owners manual would be the best but rigs this old with the manuals are scarce. Thanks......DJ

Thinking of a new Ram

I tow an Arctic Fox at 9700# ready to go camping which includes 1200# tongue weight. Does the 2500 with rear coils tow OK or is it somewhat squirmy? Thanks, DJ
