Anyone Have The Titan Solar Generator?

Pretty basic that as it gets hot, it pulls more current and trips the breaker. That's, you know, the whole point of a breaker, to trip at a certain current. Current = amps. If it doesn't trip, its exactly what I said, a bad setup.

I'm not sure how this has anything to do with the Titan, or the fact that it runs 4 different AC units on two different rigs without lighting us on fire. 5 years full time, 3 rigs, no fires. Thank you for the information though.
Pulls less current actually. That's why the breaker doesn't trip even when the RV plug is burning hot.
Here's a guy who took time to make a video explaining it.

I have to admit I myself never took the time to note the specifics. Until now, while I knew the Amps didn't increase, I mistakenly assumed the amperage stayed even. (Even though I also know it HAD to change because of ohms law)

Man, that’s awful about that beautiful car. Not just because it’s my favorite model but it was certainly her pride and joy.

Sorry to hear about the corvette! What a bummer.

As far as fires and RV's, it can happy to anyone, or anything. Car, boat, house....

That is how it is supposed to work but often it doesn't. I've seen 1 RV plus 2 boat fires caused by shore power plugs and lost count of the melted receptacle/cord ends I've replaced. It is why NEC requires AFCI breakers in new construction.

Along with being more durable Smart Plugs also have tempurature sensor that prevent things from catching fire.
