    October 3, 2020I managed to change out my coach batteries today. (That was a workout) They're the cheap ones that came with the motorhome and are over 3 years old and won't hold a charge for 5 minutes. However, after changing them my inverter is dead. I did unplug the c...  more

        JaneG (The Lynn Girl) October 4, 2020 I think the original batteries died this summer when it was in the shop for 6 weeks. I forgot to turn off the 12 volt when I dropped it off. That and they were over 3 years old. I had changed batteries on my class c but it didn't have an inverter. I'd lik...  more

      John T October 4, 2020 Jane G, YES indeed changing out an Inverter alone is an easy peasey DIY project, hey there's ONLY TWO relatively big DC - and + fuse/circuit breaker protected cables required FROM your battery bank TO the suitably located Inverter's DC input having adequa...  more

        JaneG (The Lynn Girl) October 4, 2020 Thanks for all the input John T. It has been determined the 1500 inverter I have is not suitable for RV operation. it is only set up for ac outlet connections. So now I'm looking at the Xantrex ProWatt SW to replace the existing dead Xantrex Pro xp1000. I...  more

      JaneG (The Lynn Girl) October 4, 2020 Solved. Silly me missed a cable reconnecting batteries. Must have been the one leading to the inverter! Thanks for everyone's help

      joe and Helen October 5, 2020 before you do anything these fine members are suggesting. I would take a picture of all the wiring so you can put thing back the way they were. only a suggestion.

        JaneG (The Lynn Girl) October 5, 2020 that is exactly what I should have done, but didn't and know I should have. If I had I wouldn't have had to post this for help. All is good now. I've got everything working as it should and connected as it should.

      John T October 5, 2020 Jane, just a PS to your statement " Thanks for all the input John T. It has been determined the 1500 inverter I have is not suitable for RV operation. it is only set up for ac outlet connections" FYI many small to mid sized Inv...  more

        JaneG (The Lynn Girl) October 5, 2020 John T, I considered the plugging into the RV method, but realized it would be a "loop" connection where the inverter would be charging and discharging the batteries at the same time and probably not a good idea. I'm not electrician trained but math train...  more

      John T October 6, 2020 Jane, your math training paid off, you're RIGHT. Neither a Charger or an Inverter is 100% efficient, there are heat losses, so using both at the same time when dry camped will drain your batteries.... Some people just turn the charger (as well as other hi...  more
