Taytronics 1500 failed
I have a Taytronics 1500 that has quit working.  I know some of you have changed them to a different inverter, and I was wondering if anyone knows if there is a direct replacement.  It would be nice to be able to use the same remote wiring for...

I did see that, and I haven't spoken with them, but I kind of thought that might be pretty expensive for one that may be as old as mine.  I will contact them though and find out more about it.

Harold,

it sounds like you are trying to keep things simple and come up with a direct replacement for the old TayTronics.  I understand that desire, but I would encourage you to think about a upgrade to a more modern unit.  The advantages of doing...

A full sine wave inverter with a battery temp management system incorporated would be a very noticeable improvement

Get a high-quality pure sine wave 2,000 watt inverter that draws less than 25 watts while under no load.

Having used the OEM inverter since we purchased the coach, the disadvantages are, it draws more idle watts, you can't run a laser printer from it and the microwave is much slower. Other than that, it's working great. I do have an old Trace...

Spend the money now or spend it later for a new sine wave inverter/charger.  I would choose from selection at Xantrex, Magnum, or Victron from donrowe.com . 
 
For low cost and good specs, check this out:
Xantrex Freedom XC 2000 Pure Sine...

The xantrex! Magnum and .outback all mention conformal circuit boards for humid uses.(boats?)

The Magnums me-rc panel has in its preloaded battery type settings both types of agm's.

The others seem to need to be custom set for Lifeline AGM's.

I ended up purchasing the used Taytronics 1500 from Colaw RV.  All is back to normal.

Just ordered a Magnum hybrid inverter/charger,the arc control and the shunt battery monitor from Allen at Bay Marine,they matched
the Amazon price and were very helpful,think the hybrid will help when in the Yukon on that 15 amp service.

Harold, you have some time to figure out what to do when the used Taytronics fails.  Sooner than later.  Good to know what you want to do when you have to, maybe before.

Think that is the part with the shunt the BMK,it's the battery monitor system.

Think I'll hook up what I got and go from there,it will be more info about battery then I have now.Were not big boondockers or

John, I think what Bob is referring to is the battery temp monitor.   The Magnum comes with the battery temp sensor and wiring.

Installing a Magnum Hybrid or Victron Multiplus Inverter.

When you get this inverter/charger please read the install...
