Read Will Prowse

Will Prowse, YouTube Mobile Solar genius has a book out ďMobile Solar Power Made EasyĒ. Itís on Amazon as a paperback and Kindle. All you will ever need to know. His web site gives a LOT on info for free.

Also, as one of your responders said, check fuse amps and wire gauge...but itís really best to fully understand for safety down the road...

Bad inverter?

Donít neglect The inverter being un
Cooperative. If there is a Gfci outlet Iíd replace it due to their high failure rate.

I have a 3000 watt inverter and had problems with the breaker tripping like yours is. I used a breaker that was 300 amps because it was cheaper than the 400 amp fuse the manufacturer suggested. At the time I would rather not buy new 400 amp fuses every time they blew. Anyway long story short I finally decided to buy the 400 amp fuse to replace the breaker and I haven’t had any problems since.

I think the breakers aren’t very accurate when they get up that high. If yours is a good brand like Blue Sea I would trust it but otherwise I would bet it’s the breaker.

Of course that was after double and triple checking all my connections and wires etc...

Edit: I just took a closer look at that breaker and I see the lugs are over sized for it. Your lugs have 3/8 holes and you probably want 1/4”. You can see it’s bigger than the terminal on the breaker; but that breaker won’t take the 1/4” lugs because they”re too big and won’t fit. I had that problem. Anyway I would look up the installation manual for that inverter and see what it suggests for a breaker or fuse in that location. I would bet that’s your issue.
