Mine does everything I want it to do. We don't dry camp often mostly when traveling. We also don't have a res fridge so I only need it for lights and TV.

Jcowles,
What size is your inverter? Is it the Magnum Energy MM1212?

Problems, problems, problems...

I have a 2012 390bh. My inverter is the mm1212 it stopped charging last year. After call in tech support and randy at fr they said it was time to replace it. Ironically is was out of warranty by a couple months. I ordered one online it was just under 800 and switched it out myself. Not a hard job. The alternator on the engine will charge house batteries. I learned this from not having the inverter working for a week or two while on the road.

And after about 150 camping days in the berk. Never had a problem with the size of the inventor.

Update on the inverter ...

Bought an inverter off of Amazon. Since I am a member of Amazon prime, I was able to get free 2 day shipping. For $11 more I got overnight shipping. Ordered it Friday, had it in hand before noon on Monday, installed it myself in under an hr, no problems so far.
$730 vs. $8500!

Great news! Did you install the same inverter?
No go pull the mask off that RV repair crook.

Pays to do things yourself and not let them make $7700 off you for 1 hr of your time installing it.
Take the $7700 savings and eat a big juicy steak and laugh at how you almost go robbed. These dealers think we are dumb I guess.
Glad your all fixed up now and saved your self from shotty people, now you know not to return to the thieves you just left.

Installed same inverter, Magnum Energy MM1212.
I just couldn't see how I needed 3000 watts of inverter if I don't even turn on the inverter.
I'm spoiled, I park where there's water, electricity, and sewer.
If I'm parked in a Walmart parking lot, it's only for sleep.
Thx for all of your input guys!!!
