Here is a good $$$$$$

If anyone is looking for an inverter you might want to take a look.

I have the Magnum Energy MagnaSine 2800 in our boat and have installed a few of them for others. They really are great. My only beef is the limitations on installing them on a bulkhead, and the difficulty of getting an ABYC compliant (huge) ground terminal attached to the case.


These are minor issues though -- I absolutely love these things.

Well, I hope they are really good because I just ordered one. The price can’t be beat.

The last MS2800 I installed was a dealer refurbished unit. It was half the price of a new one. It was missing some parts and pieces, had a bent case and down-rev firmware. It worked flawlessly anyway.


At this price (which is way below dealer cost), I am thinking these may be refurbished units.


Good luck! And let me know if you need the AGS unit option, I have a couple of them laying around.

That’s an unbelievable price! I have the 2812, with the 125 amp charger.

WRT the ABYC ground terminal. Is this on the shore power side or the DC side? It might be an “issue” with my install.

It is the case of the inverter. ABYC requires the case to be grounded to the DC negative buss or battery connection with a conductor that is equal to or one wire size smaller than the inverter's DC (-) conductor. Magnum supplies a stud, you may need to find a lug with a 1/4" hole. Easily overlooked, it's an easy ding for the surveyor.

Yes the price seems too good to be true, but it is being sold through Walmart so hopefully it is really true. It says nothing about being a refurbished unit so it better be new. Time will tell.

Hmm. Hard to resist this savings opportunity, so I didn’t try. My Zantrex system is getting old, so I also placed an order.

Did anyone take the extended warranty? 4 years for $77 seemed like a good deal as well.

Ok, update. The supposed good deal inverter arrived. It is a 1500 small Magnum inverter/charger. Nothing like what is shown on the Walmart web site. Spoke to Boat and RV Accessories whi is the actual seller. They said Walmart linked to the wrong inverter. They are sending me a return label and will refund the price to me, supposedly. Time will tell. Should have known it was too good to be true...
