there's a big difference between .150 ohm and 1 ohm...

typo perhaps?

A man with one clock knows what time it is. A man with two clocks is  
never sure.

Hello to all, This is kinda off topic.. I'll put it on topic..  I use  
my Pegasus for portable operation when camping..

I use the internal 12v system in the camper from the battery side for  
a power supply.. The battery charging part of the converter quite  
I found the problem, the big ballast resistor went open.. It's one of  
those big white ceramic 50w .150 ohm units..

You just can't find those thing at the corner store..
Why do these manufacturers choose them?? Something I don't know?? I  
can get a 50w 1 ohm
old brown wire wound one.. That should work..
