The difference was in how the 120VAC wire to the converter section was connected.

In U.S. it's: Main Breaker> Converter Breaker> Converter
In Canada it's: Main Breaker> Terminal Strip> Converter Breaker> Converter
Or something like that. It was at least two years ago.

When it didn't work at start up I called PD and that was the first thing they had me check. Just had to move one wire. They said that was for Canadian Apps only. In U.S. apps the terminal strip on the right side of the case isn't normally used, so I used it for an extra ground point.

Thanks Bob, still seems a bit odd as our power supply is the same and the appliances used in Canadian built trailers all come from the same major suppliers the US trailer builders use and has been that way for many decades. :

Maybe because your "hydro" is metric.

LOL well your right we do use the International System of Units and while I know that the US along with Burma & Liberia (as unusual an alliance as that may seem), did not adopt the same system as the rest of the world but I was pretty sure the US at least uses the same units of measure in regards to watts, voltage and ohms from the standard - or at least I thought you did.
