Just to set things strait my converter is fine.
Suz asked the question in post 12.
Bob commented:Apparently the confusion here is that there is an 4-5 terminal buss bar on the right side of the box labeled something like "120VAC HOT". I asked PD about this buss and was told that it was required for Canadian (CSA?) approval, that the incoming hot lead had to go there first, before going to the bottom feed on the main breaker. At least that's what they told me. It's not used in U.S. installations, but being there and being labeled is a bit confusing.
I responded to him.
As I said earlier, PD's instructions are a little brief.
