Default Rivergate PS question

Anyone ever notice the fan on a rivergate 30 amp just barley move. I am talking like 1/16 a turn at a time, but never fully kick in? The PS is not hot to the touch, it is just like it can not decide if it want to run the fan.

thanks in advance

Hey Kerry,

You have to REALLY tax the PS to get the fan to kick on. I've personally never seen one kick on before. Even our hot, humid days in Memphis is not enough to kick it on.

it will only kick on when its gets hot. my 35 only will kick on if I have two chargers and motor master going full song and even then its takes a few min before its get warm.
