Need everyone's help,
I am trying to install a Xantrex 2000 watt inverter
. Hooked it up to the batteries as instructed by the manual. I have a switch installed that allows me to select shore power
. This inverter has 2 GFCI outlets that you can plug
into. When I am not hooked up to shore power
disconnected) and am switched to the inverter, the inverter works as it should. When I plug the boat in regardless of where I have the switch (Inverter-Off-Shorepower) the GFCI trips. The manual does not refer to this problem any where. Is this maybe what is supposed to happen? I have friends that have inverter chargers that when it senses shorepower it automatically switches off and vice versa when shorepower is disconnected. Because this inverter does not have a charger
and is accessed through the GFCI outlets should the GFCI trip when it senses 120 volts?
Need some wisdom here!
Thanks, Golden Echo
