Question on that Freedom
Are you using the on-inverter controls/display or the remote?

If the latter, both ends of the data cable. Unplug and re-plug a few times

NO guarantee other than the ultimate "Money back" If it does not work your "Free" is hereby refunded.. And if it does work.. it's still free.


Home was where I park it. but alas the.

Thank-you all for your input and suggestions. I have looked on line and new Freedom458 Inverter/Chargers seem to run from 1000 to 1500 dollars with a new remote control board approx. 150 dollars but my question is what does the word Xantrex mean, this word is now part of the name of the inverter, for example Xantrex Freedom 458 Inverter/Charger? I take the motorhome to my mechanic on Monday. The prices I see for the new inverters even with labor should keep the cost well under the 3000 dollar cost he thought it could cost. My last question is how hard would it be for me to change out the inverter, and I am no means a electrician even though I changed the battery in my jeep.

Xantrex is a brand name like Maytag.

If you get the same model, all should be easy swap. Polarity is critical for both the 120v and 12v connections or the magic smoke is released. Actual terminals could be slightly different. If access is easy give it a go. Do read the full installation instructions before you start.
