Thanks Radio. I'm going to add a volt meter to my shopping list. I'll have experiment with the breakers next time I'm at my trailer. I keep it in storage. If I remember correctly, when I checked my breaker panel it didn't have the converter singled out. It had either a "general" or "main" breaker though.

Have any of you tried the Yamaha 2400w genny? I was borrowing 2 honda 2000w gennys for my last trip. I want to invest in my own and if a Yamaha will work, it's a lot cheaper than buying two hondas.

Thanks

My panel has about 6 120 Volt breakers. One is labeled "CONV"

If yours is not labeled, you might try this - Turn off all the 120 breakers. Turn on all the 12 vdc lights and fans, to load the system. Turn on each 120 breaker until you hear/see the converter come on. Then label the thing so you don't have to go through all that again!

We have the Yamaha 2400, and it works great. It will run our 13,500 BTU air conditioner at 3500' elevation.......that is about the highest elevation I can get at around the mountians (the western members call these hills) in this area. I don't count on it to run anything else at the same time that we have the AC on, though.
