I think you ought to drag that thing out of storage, and meet up with us and some other folks in the Arizona desert in early January.

Would love to!  We are grounded until wife gets a new heart.  Maybe next year.

Nothing serious you understand. 

Yikes! Hope all comes out well.  I had quadruple open heart surgery four years ago and I'm really impressed with how the medical field has come along. It's really amazing what they can do for you.

Yeah, that's certainly a good reason not to come. We completely understand. Our prayers and very best wishes are with all of you. On a positive note, a friend/retired DEA agent I know got a total heart transplant last year and it's truly remarkable how well he's doing. It's hard to believe he's the same guy. He takes a bunch of pills each day, but he could probably walk us all under the table. We'll see you next year. KOFA's not going anywhere.

Brad: without going back to look at your charger panel (but I think you have the mini) the ME-RC and ME-ARC have the capability to set the max AC current draw. I rarely take an external generator anymore, but can easily charge the coach on a 1000w generator. I simply set the panel to my shore supply and the Magnum manages the max draw through the inverter and charger together. If yours doesn't do that and you are hanging at friends houses, etc., with 15A service, you might consider upgrading the panel.
Now to go read up on that little panel...

(Later)....  Been reading. You do have control of max load on that panel..  Setup 01:Shore. Just matchnthe breaker and the load preset. Just be aware that calculation does not include fridge on AC, MW, or HVAC

Still the question is why you get a comm error? That panel is powered from the Magnum itself. Is there anything plugged in to the StackPort (Red) on the inverter?

PS- Just read your last comments.. Yikes.. hope everything turns out good. I have a friend that just went through the same and he's already back on his feet and starting to be the big ol' PITA he's always been :)
He's even talking about Quartzsite again :).
