What battery are you connected to? It sounds like youíre connecting to the EK1 connections under the driverís seat, which is only rated for 40 amps - that inverter can pull kite than twice that. And Iíd be afraid someone will look at that as a convenient step one day...


Cheers,
Greg

The inverter will pull 200A @ 2000W, or 300A surge. This is too much for the auxiliary battery to handle.
