Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact size,takes up very little space We had the 2575 installed in our rv in December of 2014, we can run most of our appliances with it and with the help of solar panels we don't have to run our generator,except for those cloudy day's. We love having this product. The only issue we have is that we have a voltage meter in our rv that when running the inverter should read around 110 volts but it is showing 140 or higher until you turn something on.

The cabra 2500 has two positive inputs and two negative do you need to run two of each to get max power?

Asked by: dondon
You can get full power from either setup. It all depends on the gauge wire you are using. You may use 2 cables of gauge #2 or bigger. Or you may choose to use 4 cables or gauge# 4 of Copper stranded wire. It is recommended to keep the cables as short as possible, ideally under 6 feet.

I want to mount this in a 2012 F350 6.2L gas engine, with a 150 amp alternator and a single battery. Would that handle this inverter? Also, where I want to mount it is about 10 feet from the battery. Should I run a single 2 awg, or double 2 awg cables?

Asked by: John D
Yes, we think that your installation should be good. Please note that at full load (2500 watts) the inverter will be pulling about 240 amps from the battery, so your alternator will not be able to keep up. But it is rare to have an appliance that actually pulls that much power. Your 150 amp alternator will be supplying maybe around 30 amps to the car (just a guess), which leaves roughly 120 amps in reserve. 120 amps can continuously supply a load of 1200 watts (without running down the battery). But please note this is just a rough estimate. Regarding cabling, for a 10-foot run we recommend #4 cables. Use four cables: two positive cables and two negative cables.

I would like to permanently install in my 08 Expedition. I would like to disassemble the unit and install the power outlets on the center console, while putting the internals inside underneath the console. Is this possible?

Asked by: car nut
The quick answer is that yes, it's always possible. However we cannot recommend doing that because it exposes potentially dangerous voltages and may also void the warranty. A safer solution is to install your own outlet and run an extension cord to the inverter and plug it into the inverter. You will still need to be careful to properly install and wire your outlet.

Install 2575 as stated in the manual. I connected a 1500W heater and LUP alarm is activated. If I did not accelerate the engine to over 2000RPM LUP is not turned off. The cable from the generator to the battery is heated and burned and only gives 102V AC

Asked by: Franc
1500W / 12V = 125A. Please note, that heater is drawing 125 Amps from the battery, which the alternator will have to supply in order to keep the battery charged up AND the truck running. When using only one battery on such a big load, the alternator has to work twice as hard to try and keep up with the heater's HIGH demand as well as maintain the truck electronics. Having 2 or more batteries connected in parallel, gives you more running time and less stress on the alternator. P.s. Any appliance that generates heat, puts a constant High Load on the batteries. Cobra Power Inverters output is a "Modified Sine-wave. Therefore, it is normal to read low voltage when using a regular voltmeter. In order to read the actual 115V~120VAC output, a "True RMS" voltmeter is required.

The fan is constantly running even though I have no watts being used except the clock on the microwave. Is there a way to stop it?

Asked by: frankwhite44
That is normal. This unit has 3 cooling fans, 1 of them runs constantly, the other 2 when a load is applied. Frequently asked questions: https://www.cobra.com/support/faqs Thank you for choosing Cobra!
