Need new charger/inverter

Surprisingly my Prosine 2.0 is no longer working, well at least consistently. If I play around with it I can sometimes get it to work but mostly it gives me the 3073 error. So Iím thinking I need a new unit. Iím looking at a Renergy unit as Iíve been happy with their solar system I installed last year. This is the unit Iím looking at Mainly just for occasional microwave use and my wifeís morning smoothly with a nutribullet. Thoughts? Any other unit to consider in this price range? Iíd say Iím 90% boondocking but if it is really hot Iíll get a campsite to be able to run the star cool.

Donít have experience with the Renogy inverters, but I do have their solar panels, they make nice stuff, I installed a xantrex freedom XC with a remote display, itís worked well, and has a nice footprint, itís a bit wider but flatter than the Renogy unit and others, making it better suited for mounting in certain build-outs, it fit nicely under my bench seat on a raised platform.

I like the footprint and the weight of that unit but hesitant with the experience I have had with their prosine unit.

I would go with the Xantrex Freedom XC way before going with Renogy unit. I haven't really had a good opinion of Xantrex (based on non RV stuff). In a recent conversation with an engineer from a battery company, the topic came up. He had the same initial opinion, but said they had been working with them closely, pushing design changes back into their design.

After that I did some more research and found out that they implemented Highly Accelerated Life Testing in 2012. H.A.L.T. is very robust test philosophy that when followed can provide critical feedback for the design of a product. It is a combination of temperature and vibration testing that would be perfect for a product that lives in a RV

I am impressed by that only because I know what it takes to fully implement the H.A.L.T process and the value from the result.
