Pure sine are very reasonably priced.
Buy a used but test magnum MS3012 for half price on eBay if need be.
$800 or $900.
Check build date is newer.

I strongly disagree with your statement.


I used to be a Xantrex guy but over the years seeing 3000w units burn up and Xantrex saying "unable to fix" buy a new one. Our AZ Hot Birds have been making the switch to Magnum and everyone seems quite happy with them. Better support, better customer service, and repairable.

As soon as my 10+ year old Xantrex ProSine 2.0 dies I'm going Magnum too!
(now there's an oxymoron!) hee hee hee


BTW, I use only pure sine wave now. Had my own bad experiences with modified burning up equipment and many others in our group.

I had a Magnum 2800 in my previous SP, and never had any problems (and, it did get used a lot). I bought a Magnum Hybrid 3012 for my "new to me" SP after conducting a review to make sure that there wasn't something new and better. Just one case study

Thank you for the write up Bruce.

So the Magnum 3012 is the preferred "plug and Play" replacement for the Trace RV series?

Where have they been purchased in the past? Amazon = $1674.

Our LXI runs just fine with a single 2800 Magnum. And we have a residential refrigerator. As long as the AC units are disconnected from the inverter.

As always, thank you for the input/recommendations. With the Trace installation, a magnum insertion looks to be straight forward.
More on this topic after the Dometic replacement complete. It seems I have been lucky to not experience issues with the Trace.
Am I the last owner to replace the Trace??
