Have an inverter problem that I cant seem to solve, don't know why it's shutting down hope someone can help.
Inverter installed in 2007 25 Safari FB disconnected the original equipment converter.
Inverter Xantrex Freedom 458 series 2000 watt with Freedom Basic Remote.
Surge Guard Model 34520 hardwired.
The inverter is installed under the front bed very near the batteries as specified in the installation instructions, the Surge Guard is installed between the power source and the inverter.
The problem occasionally the entire system will shut down - all the 12 volt
lights and furnace, etc go off for a few seconds and then comes back on. This is only on the 12 volt
system. This seems to happen when the living room halogen overhead lights are on 11 lights @ 12.5 watts each = 137.5, and the Furnace 55 watts, and four bulbs in light fixtures over sink and dinette 4 @ 18 watts = 72. I can force it to happen if I have the lights listed above and turn on the bedroom halogen lights.
I assume that this is an overload situation that is connected to the inverter - I don't know what to Just a note this doesnt happen when we were on the converter that was installed in the trailer as original equipment.
I am assuming that if there was an overload situation with the standard converter a fuse would blow is that correct?
As you can tell my electrical knowledge is lacking thanks for your input.
