We have a 2015 SS Agile. Just got it back from having it…

Customer Question
Hi, We have a...

Hi, We have a 2015 SS Agile. Just got it back from having it serviced, and they said everything was working with the inverter. When we plug it in at home and turn the inverter to "Power Saver Off", after a few minutes we get a high pitched sound. The blue screen on the inverter at the back displays a faulty inverter triangle with the 04 code. Our local RV service dealer doesn't seem to be able to fix this RV. Any ideas? Ellen

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the exact code? And have you tried to reset it?

04. I do not know how to reset it.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your SS yourself? What have you tried so far?

No, We just got it back from LaMesa RV in Albuquerque, New Mexico. They said everything with the inverter was working fine.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

The reason we took in in for service originally was that the inverter stopped working - everything shut down - and was overheating.

OK, what do you need?
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 2 months ago

Most inverter issues are a result of batteries that are failing or have dirty cables. How many do you have here? How old are they? And what is the make and model of this inverter?

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
We bought the RV in Oct 2014. The inverter is a Power Star LW. I can't see the serial number, but RS-232 is printed on the side. It is black.
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 2 months ago

So this is an after market unit? Let me look it up and get back to you.

We have 2 batteries.
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 2 months ago

They have a lot of models and that number doesn't help here. How many watts is this?

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
12/110V - 3000 watt, 45 amp
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 2 months ago

Let me see if I can find something here.

I cannot find any thing like that online. All the models I see are 24 vDC. Was this OEM installed equipment?

I downloaded the Power Star LW manual from https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0408/8521/files/614-00024-01_LW_LCD_USER_MANUAL.pdf. I tried to upload it to this site and send it to you, but it froze my response.

What does OEM mean?
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
As far as I know, this RoadTrek vehicle came with this unit installed.
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 2 months ago

Original Equipment Manufacturer. I could not get that link to work. I guess you can try Roadtrek. I cannot find anything on this and it may have been discontinued. I think you might try a better quality unit for an inverter/charger. These are made in China and from the price it looks to be a lower end unit. Xantrex or Magnum make some quality units. But they are twice the price of what I think this sold for.
