My Dimensions Unlimited, Inc 300 watt inverter died over last summer.
I didnít see any way to fix it so I bought a new XANTREX RS400 to
replace it. The new unit is essentially the same size. It has a
capability of 400 Watts instead of 300 and has a clean sine wave
instead of the quasi-square wave. Just received it, so I donít know
how well it works. Purchase price was $266.07 total from Blue Lake
Tackle, LTD. Excellent service and excellent price. Just check Camping

I use a Xantrex Prosine 2.0 (2,000 watts) and am very impressed with it,

As you noted, it is a clean true sine wave, not a "psuedo" stepped sorta-of sine wave

The Prosinie contains auto-switching gear, and monitors the input (it also charges the battery if I choose) if the frequency is not close enough to 60Hz, or the voltage not close enough to 120, or the input not close enough to a true sine wave... It goes all inverter on me and runs the down stream hardware off the batteries.

This is a very very good thing by the way

I like the Progressive Dynamics intellacharger better for charging the battery though (With charge wizard)
