Thanks.
This is a return to the Go Power! product line from Carmanah: 1500 Watt HIGH SURGE Pure Sine Wave Inverter
The Carmanah GoPower! website and product manual show the actual appearance. The image above is of a different but related model (the GP-SW-1500-24).

3000 watt surge... I'm waiting for someone to try running their air conditioner from it.

That makes sense. The GoPower GP-HS1500 equivalent statement (from the manual) is:
Quote:
Please use 10 ft or less of #2 Cable with a 200 Amp fuse.
Red Dog, did ETI confirm the location?

Interesting. So, that means a different remote too. Probably the GoPower GP-SWR-B, although it's hard to find which remote goes with which inverter. Here's a more current photo of the inverter, and one of the likely remote.

The manual and brochure (linked from the product page) say that both GP-SWR-A and GP-SWR-B can be used with the GP-HS1500-12 (and not the other models of remote). The GP-SWR-A is just a remote on/off switch, while the GP-SWR-B also has voltage, power, and status information.

The photo difference isn't so much a matter of being current versus outdated: the other photo was the SW (not "HS" for high surge capacity) and 24-volt (not 12-volt) model of the current product line.

I'd assume Escape will be using the GP-SWR-B, only because the Samlex remote offered a status display too. Obviously someone with one on order should confirm that.
