RE: IOTA Circuit breaker Box

Well...I installed the inverter the other weekend and tested it after isolating it from shore power with a recepticle plug tester. It showed "open ground". I must say that I have been relying on my friend for help who has experience installing a 3K inverter in his Motorhome and who has designed and installed 4 solar panel systems. We must have overlooked something. The system on shore power with the inverter isolated tests OK and works just fine. We did replace the single 20 amp breaker with a double 20 amp breaker. Originally it was marked 20 amp air conditioner. Now 1 is connected to the original A/C and the other is dedicated for the inverter. Perhaps the inverter is not grounded properly? How would I check that out? My family and I are actually staying in the rig now... so I might be able to go over it. Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated....thanks!

RE: IOTA Circuit breaker Box

The 2nd 20 amp breaker is only used when I have isolated the shore power from the system to use the inverter. I just wanted to be able to use it during short periods such as staying overnight enroute to another location so I don't have to fire up the generator to support the medical devices and such for the night.

RE: IOTA Circuit breaker Box

Thank you for your concerns and answers. I'm gonna be installing a 2000 Watt inverter into the breaker Box. A friend of mine who's done this a few times before has drawn me diagrams on what kind of wires what goes where and is available by phone call. There will be 1 or 2 isolater switches to insure there is no feed back. I'm just trying to get a few things out a way to streamline the insulation once I'm able to get my RV out of storage in the parts together to do the project this weekend.

RE: IOTA Circuit breaker Box

Yes I did look at the link, thank you. It's a 30 amp service box and the one in the illustration does look like it. I'm just trying to do some research prior to this week end. My jobs getting in the way of actually going and getting my rig from storage to work on it. I am a little intimidated with the electrical part. I was hoping it would show a way to access the breaker Box in the illustration you sent me however when I looked at it looks like theres four screws on the front thats once removed more likely to give me access to the breakers. I just need to figure out how to remove the breaker and from the Box and install the new ones. I understand there's a latch or a retainer that keeps the breaker in the slot that needs to be Removed?

RE: IOTA Circuit breaker Box

Not to argue with you but to help me understand, Why is it then that on the front of the box that has combination fuses and breakers on it has to letters IOTA? Also there is a unit on the other side of this Box that I believe to be the converter.

RE: IOTA Circuit breaker Box

Thank you for your response and for your service sir. I am thinking that I need to remove the single 20 amp breaker from the Box to take it in to see if I could match it. This is why I'm also looking for some sort of manual to gather some more information on how to access it and remove it from the Box. I am thinking of the one you showed me from lowes is going to be too big. I may have to go to a specialty store to find the part. When using the Internet I was unable to find a circuit Box made by iota.

IOTA Circuit breaker Box

I have a iota circuit breaker Box in my 2003 Holiday Rambler presidential TT. I am looking to replace the single 20 amp breaker for a double 20th breaker. I am looking for information on: 1. Where to find a manual on this circuit breaker Box. 2. Where to find a Double 20 amp breaker that will fit into the single breaker slot. Thanks

Air conditioner shroud

I have a 2003 Holiday Rambler Presidential Travel Trailer. With it came a 15000 BTU air conditioner and the shroud is brittle with a hole in it. I have looked and cannot find paperwork that came with the rig. Nor on the outside of the shroud on top of the rig. 1. How do I find the info that I need to replace the shroud? Do I need to take the old shroud off to find info on it under neigh? 2. I want a bolt on shroud not a riveted type one. Where can I find it for the best price? Thanks!
