RV Inverter/Charger Upgrade - Xantrex 3000-watt Pure Sine Wave

Our RV’s original inverter/charger has been acting up a bit lately. So when Xantrex asked us if we’d be willing to test out one of their Freedom series Pure Sine Wave models, we said “Sure!”

Since we’d had a trouble-free experience with a Xantrex inverter in our first RV, and they’re now included as standard equipment on top-of-the-line Newmar coaches, it’s not like we were concerned about installing some unknown brand. Far from it.

Since this job involves a little heavy lifting, some minor modifications to the original installation… and electricity, we didn’t make this a step-by-step “How To” video. We just covered a few of the high points. This job is probably best tackled by fairly confident, experienced DIY RVers who most likely don’t need our help anyway. It’s not that it’s particularly difficult, but when electric power is involved, an extra level of care is warranted.

We’re only a week in, but so far, we’re really pleased with the results of our inverter/charger upgrade. We’ll be reporting back with an update, along with the installation of the optional AGS (Automatic Generator Start) system in an upcoming video.
