Verified Purchase
Supplier was right on time, right product. My third one of these units.Only buy because this model was originally installed in my boat. Have had 5 failures. Very confusing to operate and understand. Have never had the number of serious problems/failures with an inverter. Have had inverters on 3 boats and 2 RV's never had total failures like I have had with Victron.
The manufacturer's tech support has not been able to help me understand this units operating characteristics.

Yes, that review sounds like someone who does not understand his inverter.
I have had two of the Victron 24/3000 quietly humming away supplying 120/240 for along time with zero problems, even driving my inverter mini split AC.
We have also used them in a number of commercial applications with zero problems.

Before Victron I used Trace with good results.

My 110 gal combo sewer tank fills up quick when having multiple users. Any suggestions on which holding tank sensors may be better than others ?

"I had an AIMS inverter sold under another name, a different model than you are looking at.  It failed from a surge overload (air conditioner tried to restart with the compressor fully loaded), blew all of the 24v dc input fuses (they used 10 30 amp fuses in parallel) and blew the output FETs.  It was about a week out of warranty, their service offer was a 10% discount off list on a new inverter.  Since the street price was 40% off list, I declined their offer.  Magnum 4024 in the bay now."

10-4 on the magnum. That's a bummer about the AC trying to restart with a loaded compressor. I'm no expert but I think if there were a 15 amp fuse (at least the minimum rating on our Dometic Quick Cool) that the in line 110 VAC AC breaker may have tripped prior to the inverter being fried.

Nemco & Tune it are both Canadian oils but I cant say that Nemco is the supplier of the Tune it oil sold at Walmart. Sorry if my text was misleading. Does anyone know if the tune it oil on the Canadian Walmart website can be ordered for delivery in the US? No one mentioned the Miles Lubricant - Personally I see the Miles lubricant (US Domestic) in direct competition with the Tune it oil sold at Canadian Walmarts - at least on the pricing, it wavers between $47 to $57 per 5 gal pail. The reviews I was referring to including the two stroke oil analysis was of the Miles lubricant on the Amazon website.

Warren is the Walmart supplier of oil in the USA I don't know about Canada.The suppliers list on DD approved oils are the only ones that have been tested and approved, the rating by others really don't mean much like the Amsol 15/40 meets the DD specs for 2 strokes but they rate it that way anyways and people buy it

I've been using the Super Tech brand in 5 gal pails from Canadian Walmarts for years. It is good oil. About half as much as the big name brands.
