    What did the ME-RC do that was strange ?? What version of remote ?

    On the "load center", do you mean the inverter would not come out of search mode ?

    The big question is, how big of load (and what kind of load) is on the output of the inverter and what was the search watts setting ??

    OK. Sounds like this unit is working OK now and the ME-RC Remote may have had a glitch and sent a search Watts number to the inverter that was HUGE !

    I'm not exactly sure how big of a number the inverter recognizes, but this is the only thing I can think of at the moment. I will check with the inverter software guy and see if this is possible.

    Version 1.6 or higher ( so it says on manual, I m away from the job site)
    Didn t come out of search mode
    Load at center appron 10 w +-
    Suddenly found the load after maybe 20 +-seconds
    Search watts - 5
    Seems to be going ok since the initial go
    No wires kinked or out of place
    Not expecting it to do it again unless it is an existing situation
    No low batter as well
    Thanx ,, Olgle

    OK, I see... 10 Watt load and search setting at 5 Watts. Not a ~huge~ difference, so I can kind of see why this happened... I'll ask around here and see what they say.

    What kind of 10 watt load was it ?? A compact flourescent light bulb ?
    Something else ??
