Also the recommendation to use an 80 amp breaker comes from the manufacture.
I don't have the juice system in my 3800 so I don't have this problem. However, an electrical engineer (hopefully), spec'ed out a 40 amp breaker to handle the pump. To replace the 40 amp with an 80 is asking for trouble without actually knowing what the motor draws.
It seems strange the manufacturer would now recommend an 80 amp when it thought a 40 amp would handle the load. If this is the case why not a recall to eliminate the problem?
