Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Which inverter do you recommend.
Hi Alexandre,toggle quoted message Show quoted text
my SM2K was fitted (by Amel) with a 1600W Crystec inverter. I am not certain of the spelling? Help please Olivier! The Dutch firm Victron have a good reputation once again after some problems, so you might want to check them out too. I would avoid cheap Chinese models. A friend bought one and he was unable to interface his GPS into his laptop due to the very high noise levels that the inverter was sending down the 240V wiring. Noise can also affect your Navtex and SSB reception too.
Sorry about your inverter mishap. Mine got very wet once too after a HP hose failure some years ago, but I cleaned it and it has worked perfectly ever since. Another good reason to put plastic piping over the hose connectors to limit the spray.
Your tech might have said the hoses were in good condition but did he unscrew the connectors and inspect for corrosion? Stainless connectors are worth the extra cost.
