Re: Xantrex Freedom Marine 20

I've had good service from my Xantrex, over the past 10 years, but it did need a small repair to replace an inadequately sized resistor. The most important thing I found was to solder the 110V input wiring connections to ensure absolutely stable voltage.

Re: Xantrex Freedom Marine 20

It’s quite possible that the transformer was installed to somewhat clean up the modified sine output of the Xantrex... heavy solution, but the higher harmonics would be attenuated resulting in cleaner power.

If replacing I would (and did) go with a true sine wave inverter (mine is a Magnum Energy, identical footprint and the electronics on board are happier).
