My IntelliPower 9200 has started making an intermitent sound like, "bzzzt bzzzt bzt bzzt." It's not a humming noise, it's more like arcing. It's also emitting an acrid electrical smell. I assume it's dead because it's not charging the batteries. I have a 2013 Arctic Fox 22H and my problem is the converter looks to be almost impossible to access without destroying cabinetry under the oven. Any advice?

#1, unplug it otherwise you might burn down your trailer.

Hard to imagine you would have to remove the oven to get access. Maybe post a picture.

I also suspect it's toast.
as it is LESS than 10 years old Progressive Dynamics might consider a core type exchange for a factory Refurb.. Save you some bucks.

Progressive Dynamics is in Marshall Michigan. when my 9180 fried (AlaS OVER 12 years old I paid the factory a visit... They do not normally do walk-ins but. Well. I was in the neighborhood (parked overnight at the T/A in Tekonsha about 15 miles south of 'em)

Progressive Dynamics is on the corner of Industeral and a road the locals call Old US-27
T/A is M-60 and Old US-27
I'm a former Local.


Home is where I park it.

Here's a picture. Maybe you can see it lurking way back in there.

There is something special about camping in an RV.

It's done everything but a shoot em up theatrical plunge off a balcony. Unplug it by switching the breaker off. After the fire starts the breaker will trip
