Assuming your looking at the incoming AC power voltage I suggest you use a volt meter and go outside and plug test the voltage at your shore power and see what it reads. They should be the same.

Just the inverter providing power or are you plugged in? Plugged into shore or generator? 30A shore connection or 50A connection?

Look in your owners guide:

"High Volts AC appears on the LCD.
The FAULT (red) LED is on. The
PWR (green), CHG (green), and INV
(green) LEDs are off.

High Volts AC – This fault causes the charger to be disabled because a
very high AC voltage (>150 VAC) has been detected on the AC input.
Remedy: Remove all AC power from the inverter’s AC input for
at least 15 minutes to automatically restart this fault. Ensure only
120VAC power is connected to each of the inverter’s AC inputs."

I had 160V once and my HW50C prevented the smoke from escaping.

Hi,

I'm glad to know that high voltage is not allowed to pass through. Just one more reason for me to NOT have a surge device, but rather to rely on the autoformer.

Does the manual list the number where it cuts off the voltage?
