Question

When is the front cooling fan supposed to run?

w/ no load & just turning it on cold, the fan sometimes runs & sometimes doesn't run. Also, long after a heavy load is finished, the fan will often not shut off by itself. If I turn something small on then off, the fan will then stop.

I have installed it as directed in your note. There is plenty of ventalation. It is not behaving as a thermal fan should as I described above.

answer 2
Incorrect set up can actually affect fan operation, first ensure correct installation. 2 positive and 2 negative cables must be used. The negative cables must be attached directly to the battery negative post, no chassis ground. For a 3 foot run use 4 gauge cable, do not use jumper cables and clamps, this must be a permanent bolt and nut installation. Adequate ventilation and mounting away from heat sources is required. The fan is a thermal activated fan so it will come on and off as needed to cool the circuit board down. For further assistance, please contact 1-877-619-6321.

To use 2 6 volt batteries with a 12 volt inverter you have to wire the batteries in series. One wire from the positive of one battery to the negative of the next. Then wire one set of the inverter terminals to the two leftover battery terminals, making sure the polarities are correct, as described in the inverter manual. And use large enough wire. There are charts on-line that provide wire sizes given expected max current and wire length.

The two inputs halves the current load between the four cables which allows the use of more readily available 4-gauge cables . Connect your two 6-volt batteries in series. The two Positive cables from the inverter will go to 6 Volt battery #1 open Positive post. The two Negative cables from the inverter will go to the 6 Volt battery #2 open Negative post. Ensure all cables (4 total, 2 positive and 2 negative) are clean on both ends and are 4 gauge (less than 3 feet long). Clean the battery terminals until they are shiny lead. Do not use a set of clamps on the battery terminals, this unit must be permanently connected to the battery. Use ring terminal ends on both ends of the (four) 4 gauge battery cables (a bolt passes through the ends to secure the ends to the battery and the inverter). Secure all nuts/bolts with a wrench to ensure correct contact. Both negative cables must go back to the battery negative terminal.

answer 1
This product has no internal battery - there is nothing to fully charge. It is a power inverter which converts DC power (from your external battery) to AC power.

This inverter has more than enough capacity to run a CPAP machine (when connected to your battery) but it is not certified for use with medical equipment.

3000 watt inverter - connecting 2 marine batteries

Does it matter whether each battery is independently connected to 1 of the 2 sets of terminals, or connecting one battery to the terminals on one side and then connecting the second battery in parallel to the first battery?

Connect the batteries in parallel to the 2 sets of terminals to maximize on run time.You also need a charging source to charge the batteries

answer 2
Yes it does matter. The four cables from the back of the inverter MUST ALL be connected to battery #1. Battery #1 can then be connected to Battery #2 (Parallel) to provide longer run time, while still being 12 Volts.

This big 3000w inverter craves juice .

The one I bought came with 2 pair of #4 awg about 3 feet long each .

This is good , however if you cable lengths get longer you will need bigger cables .

Remember good solid connections is a must , use washer and locking washers .

For cables up to 3’ long, use at least 4 gauge. For cables up to 6’ long, use at least 2 gauge. For cables up to 10’ long, use at least 1 gauge. Maintaining the shortest distance possible between the battery and inverter provides the best performance. (We do not recommend using cables longer than 10’). Four (4) cables are required - two (2) Positive and two (2) Negative cables with ring terminal ends for a permanent installation using bolt and nut.

Question

Does Canadian Tire sell a 2000w or greater power inverter that has a pure sine wave output

We purchased the 3000w model, but I didn't realize it had 2 1500w outlets making the 3000w, and also that the modified sine wave is not suitable for many items we intended to use it for.

1000w Pure Sine is presently the biggest Pure Sine Canadian Tire has .

Not to many places sell 2000w Pure Sine Inverters , they start to get expensive .

However the internet probably has thousands for sale , good luck .

Much like the common household power outlet, a typical inverter outlet is capable of running continuously at 13-15A (less if the inverter is rated under 1500W) and can handle surges up to 20A. This is usually enough for most appliances but where the issue sometimes arises is in appliances with very high startup surges. To go beyond this amperage limitation of a single outlet, you would need to purchase a 3000W or larger inverter with a hardwire option. This is not a product currently available at Canadian Tire.

Because pure sine wave inverters are expense (and the larger they get the more expense they get!), what many customers choose to do is run two separate inverters – a modified sine wave for most of their appliances and a smaller pure sine wave for only those appliances that require the pure sine wave. Both inverters can even be connected to the same battery/battery bank. Canadian Tire currently carries a 1000W pure sine wave inverter (model 11-1892).

The inverter is about 3000w and you hot water tank is 1500w . Of course this bad boy can run your hot water tank .

The more batteries you have the longer you will have Hot Water .

answer 2
Is the 1500W actually the input load or is this a heat (output) rating? Assuming it’s the input, yes this 3000W inverter has more than enough capacity to power it. We would recommend checking with the water heater manufacturer to confirm that it will run off a modified sine wave. Of course, running a 1500W AC appliance continuously is a big task for you battery(s). Remember, a typical group 27 deep cycle battery rated at 100Ah would run a 1,500W appliance for only about 25 minutes straight so hopefully you have a lot more battery power!

Your Slow Cooker probably draws less than 15 amps at 120 v ac , this inverter can do 2 of your cookers all at once .

But you will need ample 12v battery power , this will be your weakness and not the inverter .

It should work correctly but this is actually a question about the crock pot itself. Please check with the crock pot manufacturer for power consumption on low setting. Alternatively, if you plug in the crock pot, the inverter display will let you know the watts used by the appliance.

For best results all connections should be parallel .

Both plus's from inverter should go to one plus bat terminal , than that plus bat terminal should go to next plus bat terminal .in essence it is like one big wire, and the same with the negatives .

Make sure all your connections are mint , complete with washers & locking washers . No loose connections , not even one or you will have poor performance .

The correct installation is to have 2 positive and 2 negative cables coming from the inverter to one battery. To extend run time a second (or more) batteries can be add by connecting them in parallel to the first battery. For further assistance, please contact 1-877-619-6321.
