Okay, sounds fun.. Horse power is how fast the torque is applied? But as a "selling tool" I bet you have a better way to express that Oh, also the MFR must limit the torque gain due to the tranny. Now tell me what you were really saying

Back a few years ago; We were looking to buy a diesel pusher. We went to a major factory toured it were impressed. When we were doing the paper work, They were offering what I considered a small HP diesel When I asked for a larger HP; that was near twice the size they would not put it in... There reasoning was the diesel had to much torque and it would shake the coach apart; We walked away; THis was a well known manufacture , That has been sold several times since then.

Dang! Just when I thought I knew everything along comes this thread.

So, our 400ISL is just sitting in the driveway with nothing "running" and on shore power. Please clear this up.....

Just sitting there, does it have any horsepower or torque??

Well let's see: it's plugged in so the converter is on plus parasitic loads and since 746 watts equal one horse power..... getting a bit silly huh?

Silly? Certainly not.

I just found out we have a two horsepower coffee maker. Who knew.

I am trying to figure out the torque and rpm of the rotating plate in the microwave so I can calculate the horsepower, or would that be mousepower???
