Sensata only seems to have a 24 volt hybrid, the MSH4024M ... their 48v products are all the standard without load support

Another nock on Magnum, the internal fans are low quality and custom designed. Same size as a computer fan but the internal electronics are matched to the proprietary speed control that Magnum uses. A drop in replacement doesn't seem possible. This is from studying the subject watching repair videos.

I've noticed some bearing noises from mine, so I know a time bomb is ticking now.

GordonThree, I looked online and the fans are $15 each.

Yes on pure sine wave. My neighbor is on his second frig they were both so new
Warranty was still there to save the day

I guess neither repair person realized the issue was a result of the inverter
Houseboat use.

When out most bounce 1/2 the day on inverter other half on Red Honda
In the day 2000 or so boat builders didn’t install pure sign waves in moderate range HB

That's some sort of used unit or a scam.

Magnum is a solid unit but probably on the lower end as far as features. Outback is nearly indestructible and has some fancier programming options. I have no experience with Victron.

Hybird mode:
If you're running a small generator and it won't power your load the inverter will "help" the generator by providing additional power to the load. It pulls this power from the batteries which are not being recharged while doing this. So, it only works for so long. Eventually, theoretically, your load drops to where the generator can handle it alone and the inverter recharges the batteries.

My Magnum 3012 hybrid has been trouble free for the past 39 months using it everyday, never been turned off. No noisy bearings and no magic smoke. No complaints.
