    Unfortunately we cannot give homeowners part numbers or instruction on repair work here. As it violates the sites rules on DIY work.

    Inrush is reduced.
    However inverter style units tend to be very picky about the cleanliness of the power they receive. Many will need an inverter style generator to function.
