Hi Doug,

Thanks for refreshing my memory. 60 amp transfer. But I wonder if is L1 and L2
capable. That's the part I'm fuzzy about.


Should not be as L1 and L2 each have 50 amps. The 60 amp pass thru gives you a little leeway for running one leg thru the Inverter. Doug

Not sure if I understand the issue of how much can pass through the Magnum. In any case I tried going back to the original capacitor. No difference. Ran for a bit. Loaded up & I got to the switch before it popped the breaker. Next stop for us is Lafayette IN. Found a repair center that can do an install of a new unit in one day. Price quoted isreasonable. Next week we will be cooling out again.

Veebyes,

Sorry to hear of the problems. Did you happen to monitor the voltage as the over load started?

Final installment of the saga. Called a small RV repair place in Lafayette, IN last Friday. Ordered new unit. Booked installment time for yesterday at 10. Dropped trailer off. A little over an hour later got a call. Job done. $1150 for everything. Living cool & quiet again.
