    i have found a guy that will sell me genuine replacement kipor generator inverter's for £200 inc vat
    is this good or bad??
    he says there is no problem with kipor's just the owners try to pull to much current out of them and blow the inverters.

    I have an IG2600 in need of a new inverter board, £200 is a good price but would I get £200's worth of use out of it, ever?

    then they are of poor design.. it shouldn't be possible to overload the inverter ..

    Kipor cutting corners I say ..

    he's telling porkies.

    my IG 2600 died in its sleep...worked fine one day then nowt the next.

    300v into the invertor card and nowt coming out.

    does your contact offer any guarantee with the invertor boards ?

    your kipor did not die in its sleep it died when you switched it off the last time you used it.
    why would he need to tell porky's??
    i was not buying a genny off him,i would not plug a kipor into my motorhome.
    honda only for me.
    cannot understand people that spend tens of thousends on a motorhome and then scimp's on a genarator to save a few hundred £££?????
