issue? Could plugging it into shorepower and turning on the charger somehow reset something like a breaker etc? Has anyone else had this issue? Thanks for any tips.
Just a long shot as I assume you took the other peoples advice.......
Firstly, it is highly unlikely that you have a bad connection and also can draw 135 amps. So cables
and connections are very unlikely as the source of the problem. You don't smell any burning do you?
The above quote looks like something random is using ac current
. The hot water
boiler perhaps. You plugged into shore power
and the boiler heated up, then when you went onto inverter
the boiler was already hot.
I would solve the problem of what is drawing so much power first.
To do this switch off all ac devices at the breaker.
On shore power does it draw 130a, if so, its not the inverter
You might need to borrow an ac clamp meter. (I see its been said)
hope that helps
