Should I leave my RV inverter on all the time?
For most users, the RV inverter should be turned off when not in use. This is because the inverter consumes power from the battery even when the power supply is not being used. Even in standby mode, the inverter draws a small amount of power from the RV’s battery pack to power its electronics. This trickle can drain the battery if the RV is parked for an extended period of time.
However, if you have a household refrigerator in your RV, you may need to turn on the inverter to ensure its contents stay fresh, especially if you are carrying temperature-sensitive foods such as meat or dairy. Some high-end RVs come with a separate, smaller inverter dedicated to the refrigerator, but in most cases there is only one inverter and the car refrigerator requires the RV inverter to be on all the time.
How do I turn on /off my RV inverter?
The inverter itself has an on-off key, which can be turned on and off by pressing the on-off key. But if your RV inverter is out of reach, or if you want to turn the inverter on or off at any time, it is more convenient to install a remote control panel.
CNBOU RX-485 intelligent inverter controller is specially designed for BPlus series products, and the panel can be directly embedded in the RV console. It can remotely control the inverter, and switch the inverter at your fingertips. In addition, the inverter can be functionally set through the panel, which can set the battery type, low voltage value, frequency 50hz or 60hz and temperature unit (Fahrenheit and Celsius). Long press the ESC key to put the inverter into sleep state, usually only power consumption within 5W at this time.
How do I know if my RV inverter is working?
Once there is a problem with the power supply of the RV, it will be very headache. Typically, you have to stop the RV in and out to check the power supply. If the inverter is faulty, it is necessary to disassemble the inverter to find out the cause of the fault. CNBOU RX-485 intelligent inverter controller, as an upgraded version of ordinary remote switch, is equipped with an LCD display screen, which makes the working conditions of the inverter more transparent. CNBOU RX-485 intelligent inverter controller communicates with BPlus series pure sine wave inverter through the international standard modbus communication protocol. On this LCD screen, various parameters of the inverter working are displayed: battery voltage, battery capacity, AC output voltage, AC output frequency, AC output power and inverter temperature. When the inverter fails, the fault code will be displayed at the temperature position, and the fault cause can be quickly found out through the fault code and combined with the manual, which is convenient for solving common fault problems.
