Well, I wonder how this could have been avoided. Turns out the automatic voltage regulator is toast. So this means I have seriously overpaid for this puppy. Live and learn. The darn thing ran and turned on lights. But a 220V 30 amp load killed it. I am supposed to get it back in a couple more weeks. Shop said it would do what I wanted it to do when I get it back. We will see, or I will be in someone's face big time.
