Hi to all
In order to independance my power source from the engine
while cruising, I have been evaluationg and after information from here and other Forums
I decided for the IstaBreeze 500. The unit arrived and we´ve installed it already. The installation
guidelines were poor, very poor; basically they say level the thing out, install the battery
connection + to +, - to -, the three lines coming down from the generator
does not matter in the order they go. So, we´ve done as instructed. It has 2 lights, a red one for Action and a orange one for Light on, charging battery
, Light off, battery full and braking.
Well, we had so far already 30 miles gusts in the Gulf of Mexico
and the thing does very sparely turn. It more likely twists around and goes wild, then actually turning the generator
I´ve asked the factory (IstaBreeze || Wind Turbine
) and they´re response was, Thank you for the information and it should have a break installed! I suspect they did not understand my German, since they are Turkish....
Who had experience with the installation of a Istabreeze 500 and had maybe the same experience.... is it like, that the three wires coming down do not matter in what secuence?
Does the unit may has some transportation blocking, which we haven´t been made aware by the manufacturer?
The whole thing seems is blocked, who knows how to unblock the generator?
Many thanks to all of your information and experiences!
