The inverter in my 2002 Monaco Windsor is on the blink and I'm looking to replace it. Does anyone have a recommendation for a supplier of replacement inverters?

Do you want to go cheap or top flight?

Also what is there now

Cheap.. The Xantrex Freedom line... My only real complaint is the 120vac wire connections are ... not all that good (I only broke two of 'em)

Top line... something like a Tripp-Lite

Do go True(or pure) sine wave

But note that the Tripp-lite will not fit in the hole left by the Freedom which is why I askwd what is there now .


Home was where I park it. but alas the.
2005 Damon Intruder 377 Alas declared a total loss
after a semi "nicked" it. Still have the radios
Kenwood TS-2000, ICOM ID-5100, ID-51A+2, ID-880 REF030C most times

It's going to be an inverter on a Windsor.

Best to post the make and model number for the existing inverter for best answers. Most do not drive a 2002 Monaco Windsor.

Xantrex?Freedom is a piece of junk.Talk about junk.
Had and issue with one that was put in. The inverter malfunction several times, was less than 3 months old. Contacted the warranty number and told to drive to a advisor in Houston, turns out the advisor worked out of his garage at his house. He told me inso many words to pound sand. They do not back their products. Wa told that the Freedom inverter was junk by a lot of RV dealers.

Indeed, I'm having the same issue here in FL. The "service center" is a single guy in his garage over in the Tamp area. Took him 4 months to tell us a surge got it, so they are not covering the warranty. It failed the first week it was installed, and I was just traveling, not hooked up to any shore power. So stay away from them, they do not back their products.
