Hi im confused about this product and whether I can use it for my application , this is an old style phoenix victron mutiplus. I have an RV with 120v AC , I noticed the ac input and output for this inverter are 240v

So I take it this cannot be used with my current system? Or is there a way to use a transformer ?

I’m confused about whether I have a single phase or split phase system. But I think it’s a single phase 110v, Bc my RV only takes a 30amp electrical hookup

That's a euro-spec unit, 230VAC, 50Hz

You have single phase 120VAC, 60Hz.

The only way you could use it is if you set it to run at 60Hz and fed it to an auto transformer that stepped it down to 120VAC. An autotransformer is about $700.

Thanks for the info, that explains why this guy is selling that for $500

I assure you that's not the case.
