I am a long haul trucker and I have this installed in my Volvo tractor, I just purchased my second one as the first one needed to be replaced at 1yr, 10 months of heavy use. The fan did quit working , but after all the time I stated above. I use this inverter everyday, all day, as I do all my own cooking in the truck, including making my own coffee. I have a toaster oven in my truck and a hot plate and coffee maker, I have baked in the toaster oven for 2 hours with this inverter. This inverter has saved my alot of money because I do not eat in truckstops at all, I take all my own food with me and stock the refrigerator in the truck. For the price of this inverter and the length of time I got out of it I rated it 5 stars. I don't think you can go wrong with this product. One thing I would like to mention is when you install this inverter use a DC circuit breaker in place of the fuse, because you will trip it occasionally.

I bought mine 3 years ago at a truck stop. It was $80 then, and I figured it would get me across country back home and then I'd hock it and buy a good one. It has since been in 5 trucks and has ran a 700 watt microwave and a 900 watt electric skillet for 3 years now plus a TV and A little coffee pot. I learned to freakishly oversize the wires to these and almost any of them will work for a good while. I have double 2 Gauge (2 sets) feeding it. The leading cause of 90% of these failing is load wire size. When volts drop-Amps go up in any system. So if your wire is too small it will put incredible stresses on the electronics with raw amps. That is a sure fire way to kill one. I would almost Guarantee that others have ran it on those cheap 4 gauge cables you get at wally world. No dice, and it over thermals or screws up the circuitry and starts acting up. I destroyed my first one, a $400 samlex doing exactly that and It ended up with symptoms I see reviewers talk of on this one.
Only about a dozen companies even make inverters. 90% are all the same parts but different covers on them. You can get one from Harbor Freight, Kmart, walmart or Sears and be the same identical unit with different trim and one is all bragged up, the other one is cussed on! That goes for almost everything built nowadays. The cheaper the buyer is on these the sure bet is the cheaper the wire they will buy to feed it.
Rule of thumb- NEVER buy a inverter that has a running watts the same size as your intended load. NONE can survive that level of use. Always buy one that is 1/3rd bigger or more than any load you plan to run. Example- I have a 1500 with a 3000 watt surge, the surge is a bogus number so ignore it, I run a max of 1000 watts out of it at any one time.

Verified Purchase
purchased this a year ago and it works great with light loads (lights small drills). Does not work well with inductive loads like a refrigerator. I purchased a PowerBright 2300W in place of this and the Powerbright works extremely well with the refrigerator. In fact I have 2 refrigerators hooked up to the Powerbright.

In my opinion, this inverter is VERY poor quality. I believe some of the good ratings to be false. First, if the unit has a fault there is no reset button or resettable fuses. If it faults once, its trash. When mine faulted it was out of Warranty even though is was the first time I used it. I had nothing to loose so I took it apart and actually found cheap "car type fuzes" in the body of the electronics.....so if one of the six of them blew, you would have to take the unit apart to get to it.
I was not so lucky for it be that simple. The fault was caused by one of the many cheap components on the board. After spending over $100.00 on the unit and using it once, I had no choice but to chuck it in the trash (properly disposed of at the electronics dump site).

I purchased Roadpro RPPI1500 in April 2012. i Tested then and it worked. Then in November decided to use it. After connection to battery, we turned on the inverter. "POP" sound then smoke came rolling out the vent holes. It was toast. Also, product only has 90 day warranty. Since then, RPPI1500 has been removed from the market and Amazon. Amazingly, that occurred within the last month. Now they are selling the RPPD1500. I read the reviews on it and it looks like the RPPD1500 has some major problems too. I contacted RoadPro well over a month ago. As of this date, no response about the issue of the bad product. I will never buy a Roadpro product again.
Update - 1-6-2013: Final response from Roadpro (Dec 2012) was to check with Amazon.com. Give me a break! Check with Amazon.com after 6 months! The manufacturer warranty was only 90 days. Other inverter companies warranty for 2 years. My mistake was to believe the reviews and not check out the warranty period.

this inverter will not handle anything thats 9amps most inverters that are 1500 watts will but not this one. that is why they dont give you an amp rating on the spec sheet,cheap junk.
