I ran one for awhile. All you do is hook your wires up to it with the correct polarity. I dont remember it needing anything jumped to get it to “wake up” like some or all of the Iota supplies.

I don’t have mine in front of me. But pretty sure the rear set screw should be turned towards the front for fixed output. The other two positions are for charging. Hook a volt meter up and adjust the front screw to get the voltage you want.

I owned a pm3 for a while and it was a simple plug-n-play. It worked well

I had a PM3 100 Amp unit and it ran my 4 pill Messenger 3 just fine. But probably not the 8 pill Amp.

Thanks to all your help is and was most enlightening and was just what I needed. That set screw was very touchy I had to settle for 14.1 VDC it just did not want to do 13.8 VDC . I,m useing the powermax to run a , I dont think I,ll say here but the spes call for 13.8 to 14.0 so it should work . I hope

No need to be a complete ass. We have a way to deal with those. You said you did not have the paperwork. I gave it to you. You are welcome. It answers your question as well as anything else you might ask about it. What is that old saying? Give a man a fish, and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish, and he will eat for a lifetime. What is it about people that just want to be given all the answers and not put any effort into looking something up or actually learning something?

Some people enjoy speaking with others about things, even if through the internet. I do at times, but not all the time. I do not ever reply to questions the way you did, Captain. I never will. I remain most humble. I have to admit that your initial post was most sarcastic overall, but that wouldnt ruffle my feathers as far as I am concerned. Others may take things a multitude of ways. Now the threat in your reply I found most odd, as you are a staff member. I do not recall Lou threatening or using actual foul language in answering your reply. I will have to re-read it. Was either technically necessary? Probably not, but I usually call things the way I see them and it is what it is. Good day to all! And I am glad he got the info he needed.

Apparently you missed the part where he said if I did not have anything to add that would answer the question, I should just shut up. I presented him with the very manual that he said he did not have which contained the answer to his question and more. It could have been obtained in a matter of seconds using the same method I did.....GOOGLE. I see this happening everywhere all the time in this day and age. We have the most information available to us than we ever had before and people still do not bother to look for themselves but want things handed to them. I have lost manuals before and have NEVER asked for info from one with one exception.........a Conway Master Ranger high impedance FET multimeter and I asked EVERYWHERE and still have not found a manual for it yet. If I need something I download it so I have the COMPLETE info available to me whenever I want it. I have downloaded modifications and not asked. In fact I have to be EXTREMELY desperate for a piece of info before I ask someone for it since it usually takes FAR less time to find it online than it takes to ask a question and then wait...........and wait.......................for a response, and hopefully that response is correct. I gave him the info he was lacking and asked a general question. Period. Perhaps someone would like to speak to a manager about it.

You are NOT my teacher you were out of line with your sarcastic remark we all no that , and as far as that old fish proverb go,s it was right your sarcastic remark was and is all wrong . Now I am going to do what you should have done I,m going to SHUT UP .
