I was able to talk to Magnum Energy today. They confirmed that the CSW 1012 Inverter I have DOES NOT
have the ability to generate AC power for 30 minutes after shutoff of 12v power source.
So this means this phenomenon / feature can only be explained by Winnebago Engineering; as it is becoming obvious the Customer Service reps can not explain how it is wired. While the drawings show both Inverter and Battery installations, neither show details about how the wires are run across the coach and back to the battery, let alone how they may or may interact with Battery Isolation Relay or Solenoid.
Maybe it is some proprietary design and they don't wish to share? During interim Magnum Energy suggest it is either a capacitor, relay, or a timer between the Inverter? It would have to be a pretty big Capacitor to run TV and Outdoor fridge for 30 minutes?
Any help or ideas for next steps is appreciated.
I acknowledge the end result is a positive benefit, but I really would like to know how and why it works as it does.
