Old Trace Engineering Inverter/charger DR3624 Fan
Hello I live in a remote cabin in the Frank Church Wilderness in the Idaho Backcountry. I am completely off-the-grid, power, food, haying etc. This past month I have noticed my almost 20 year old Inverter Charger box (DR3624) making a strange rattling noise in the heat of the day. I dug around and found out it is the fan going out in my inverter box. I have called around (Xantrex, Schneider Engineering) trying to find a replacement part for this fan (the part is a #2005 fan for the inverter). These companies have told me that they no longer sell parts for this inverter because it is too old. I was wondering if anyone on here had a suggestion for a website or store that sells old parts from this specific inverter. What these sales reps. told me was to replace the whole inverter, or just wait till this one burns out. I am avoiding burning out my system for fear it will happen in the middle of winter (I am snowed-in for 4 months) and replacing the whole inverter would be expensive and difficult to convince someone to backpack all the way into the ranch to help me replace the system..... Any suggestions???
