Default 1996 Freedom 25 inverter/charger replacement

What's the best direct replacement to replace 25 year old Freedom 25 inverter chargers with a pure sign wave?

Magnum 2812 inverter charger, with optional remotes why optional because you need them to set up properly.

Don't do it! The old Heart Freedoms are way better than anything today. They are rebuildable. There is no reason to do this unless you have one or more that is completely shot.

If you have any desire to add solar panels, Magnum has an update to the 2818 called the Hybrid that adds the Solar Charge Controller. We are running a couple of the Magnums today, but not the hybrid versions, to replace the factory setup.

I think if I was looking to update today, I'd lean towards the new Victron models that have the transfer switch built in and the ability to "boost" the output when you need to run multiple large loads at the same time. Very versatile system and you can stack them to get just about anything you need in terms of load and output plus solar.

I just replaced mine with a Xantrex Freedom XC Pro 3000Watt one. It works great is pure sine wave and allows for custom charge profiles so it can be used for LiFePO3 in the future. Pair it with a Bluetooth Enabled remote panel (same RJ11 wiring) and you're all set.

Thank you everyone for your help, I think I'll pull it out first and see if it can be repaired, if not I will probably go back with pure sine wave on the bad unit.
