Default Curiosity killed my Xantrex Freedon 458 AC Board

I was checking some voltage at the inverter relays under the kitchen sink.When
looking at my meter I accidentally touch the metal surround that created a short and tripped the breaker.

I reset the breaker and come to find out the charge side of my Xantrex is not working.
I have been talking to the Xantrex service repair in Kansas and we determined
that the AC board is bad.
They wont sell me the AC board. They want me to send the whole unit
into them.
Sending it to them and fixing it I would have close to $700 into it.
I told them that is half the cost of a new one.

I did find a AC board online for $455. Once I order it it's mine.....no returns.
Do I order the board and take a chance............or buy a new one?
What do you think???

I think I would spend $700 and let them fix it. Who knows about an on line board with no returns.

The online store says that you should call first before ordering
to make sure you have the correct item. I guess they want you to
trust them that the board works.............

Andy,
Do you want the whole thing or just the board?

If the board is easy enough to get out of there I would just ship that. If you are in the area and want to ship the whole thing that's fine, too, but it's way too heavy.

I may have one of those inverters brand new in the box and it could be for sale. Should I bring it to Muscoda?
