  • Recommended Vent Setup to Cool Enclosed Trailer Mobile Workshop
    Even the smallest RV air conditioning units we offer will require 115-volt AC electrical service of at least 11-amps to operate properly. The Atwood Air Command Rooftop RV Air Conditioner # AT15025-21 will draw almost 4000-watts at startup and even once running it will still need close to 1300-watts to operate. Delivering this amount of power via high capacity 12V batteries and an inverter such as the 5000-watt Go Power # 34280179 will be a fairly costly and bulky proposition. Instead...

  • Can Inverter Run Off Trailer Battery to Cool Fridge When Driving
    You can absolutely connect the Power Inverter 1000 Watts with Three AC Receptacles # WC3720 as a way to run your Furrion Refrigerator for RVs # FCR17ADA-BL while you are traveling. To do so you would use a battery box like you mentioned, the NOCO Snap-Top Battery Box with Strap for Group 24 to Group 31 Batteries - Vented # 329-HM318BKS, but you would also need a charger for that battery. The charger will take power from your tow vehicle's battery and charge the auxiliary battery which is...

  • How To Power 1000 Watt Inverter in Truck Bed for Mini Fridge
    The Power Inverter 1000 Watts with Three AC Receptacles part # WC3720 comes with 6 gauge wire leads which are designed to be attached directly to a battery. If you wish to extend these leads you can do so but you'd need to use a larger gauge, the Bulldog Winch Wiring Kit part # BDW20043 would be the perfect option for this as the length would get you to the truck bed from the engine bay no problem and it comes with disconnects for when the inverter needs to be removed. The 4-pole trailer...

  • Wiring Wagan WC3720 Inverter to Two 12v Battery in Series
    If you actually mean that they're wired in parallel, where they're providing more capacity but still putting out 12v of total power, the Wagan 1000w Power Inverter # WC3720 will work for your application. If these batteries are wired in series, which would give you a 24v output you would need to go with a 24v power inverter similar to the GoPower Industrial Pure Sine 1000w # 34279949 . This inverter provides a GFCI outlet for added safety, in addition to the added voltage capacity. I'm...

  • Best Way To Power an Enclosed Travel Trailer
    I do have a few options for you to power a cordless drill, lights, and coffee pot inside you enclosed travel trailer but using a solar panel would not be the best or most cost effective setup. Basically, you are going to end up having to cover the entire roof of your trailer to power the above items. Instead, I recommend purchasing a 12 volt auxiliary battery like the one you would find in a car and then using a power inverter like part # WC3720 as well as a battery charger like part...

  • How Long Will AC Power Inverter Run Off 12 Volt Battery
    A 1500 watt AC Power Inverter will run for approximately 16 hours based on the 200 amp hour rating of your 12 volt battery. 1500 watts of AC power at 120 volts is converted to 150 watts of DC power at 12 volts. Amps = watts รท volts, so 150 watts divided by 12 volts equals 12.5 amps. We then divide the 200 (amp hours) by the 12.5 amps to get the 16 hours. We don't carry any 1500 watt AC Power Inverters, but the # WC3720 1000 Watt AC Power Inverter powered off the same 12 volt battery...

  • Best Way to Power AC Fridge in Trailer When Traveling
    The best way to do what you are looking for is to use a smaller inverter like the part # WC3720 ran from a battery installed in your trailer to power the fridge. You'd want to use 10 gauge wire like part # 10-1-1 ran from the 12 volt accessory circuit of the 7-way to the trailer's positive post and you'd be set.

  • How to Install the Wagan 1000 Watt Power Inverter # 02294
    The Power Inverter, # WC3720, comes with two 6-gauge wires with ring terminals and alligator clamps. They are only a few feet long. This inverter can be hard wired and the proper gauge will depend on how long you plan to run the wires. For example, if you will be running the wires 8 ft round trip, then you will want to use 6 gauge wire. If you will need 9 - 10 ft of wire, then you will need to use 4 gauge wire. If the cables will be running 11 -21 ft round trip, then you will want to...

  • Inverter Recommendation for Powering Outdoor Refrigerator
    What you are asking about is very possible, but you'll want to consider how much amperage the fridge draws to see if your charging system/battery will handle the load. Going with heavier gauge wire is definitely recommended. Especially since you mentioned it's a distance of 20 feet. How heavy does depend on the amperage draw of the fridge as well. The Wagan inverter part # WC3720 would be a great choice for this as it can put out up to 1,000 watts of continuous power. One of it's intended...

  • How Long Could a 130 amp/hour Battery Power a 1,200 Watt Coffee Maker
    So 1,200 watts at 120 volts would pull 10 amps. A 130 amp hour battery would be able to supply 13 hours of power with a 10 amp draw on it.

  • Are Power Inverter With Continuous Power Modified Sine or Pure Sine Wave?
    Continuous power does not mean modified or pure sine wave. If you have a specific model you are looking at, I can help further. For instance, the Power Inverter 1000 Watts with Three AC Receptacles # WC3720 says continuous power and is a Modified Sine Wave AC Output waveform. Some of the sample applications are even confusing as they are often used as Pure Sine wave applications, but based on the size are adequate. Then the Pure Sine Wave inverter, the Wagan Elite 200 Watt PRO Pure...

    I do have a way for you to install an AC powered air conditioning unit on your travel trailer that operates on DC power but the 12 volt power circuit on the 7-way trailer connector will not be sufficient to power an inverter running a 10,000 btu air conditioning unit. A 10,000 btu air conditioner in going to require around 2,000 watts for startup and 700 watts of continuous power to run.

  • What Deep Cycle Battery is Needed to Run 450 Watt Appliances for 7 Hours with Inverter # WC3720
    You will need a deep cycle battery with a capacity of at least 315 amp hours to run 450 watts of power for 7 hours. If you check on page 7 of the linked instructions for the Power Inverter 1000 Watts with Three AC Receptacles # WC3720 it states to divide the amount of watts you are using by 10 (450/10 = 45) and then multiply that by the amount of hours you need them to last (7) which then gives you the amount of amp hours your battery needs to be (45 x 7 = 315).

  • How to Determine Correct DC to AC Inverter Power Rating for 800-Watt Load
    It is never an ideal situation to use a device continually at its absolute maximum capacity. Since you are powering an 800-watt motor with an 800-watt inverter it is definitely being strained and that is the cause for the inverter's alarm. Ideally your inverter will have much more capacity than the connected device requires. It is definitely not a good idea to use an 800-watt inverter with an 800-watt device. All devices will draw more peak power than their continuous rating suggests. The...

  • How to Use an AC Powered Mini Fridge in a DC Powered RV
    In order to convert the AC power your mini fridge uses to the DC power your RV runs on, I recommend the Three AC Receptacle Power Inverter part # WC3720. The power inverter is capable of handling up to 1000 watts of continuous power which should be more than enough for your mini fridge. It comes with 2 3 foot long DC cables with ring terminals already attached. The inverter has an auto reset feature built into the device in addition to cooling fans, and a low battery alarm.

  • What is Battery Amp Hour Rating Needed to Power 1,500 Watts for an Hour
    In order to determine the length of time that an automotive battery will last when using an inverter pulling 1,500 watts of power, you will need to know the amp hours of the battery that you plan to use. For that much wattage though I can't imagine very long if it's a standard battery. Since 12 watts = 12 volts that means that you'd need a 125 amp hour rated battery to power the blender for one hour. 1,500/12 = 125

  • Should a Relay be Used With Wagan Power Inverter
    Though I can see why you might think you need a relay, I do not recommend using one with the Wagan Power Inverter with Three AC Receptacles # WC3720. This inverter has a simple On/Off switch; I assume you want to use a relay to conserve power from your battery but the same thing can be accomplished simply by turning the relay off. Just be sure to use the correctly rated fuse and wire gauge for the length of wire you need (which is included in the installation manual I've linked) to...

  • How to Connect Series-Wired Batteries to Power Inverter
    When two batteries are wired in series, such as with your two 6V batteries wired together to give you 12V operation, the negative terminal on one battery and the positive terminal on the other will be what you connect to your inverter. The linked diagram shows a series wiring arrangement (but just for two 12V batteries wired to deliver 24V).

  • How Does Power Inverter Attach to Trailer that Uses Solar Panels with Converter
    So all of your charging and power circuits run to your trailer battery so all you need to do to install an inverter on it like the Wagan part # WC7320 is run the power and ground wire of it to the battery and you're set. Since you already have a converter on the solar panel charge line for the battery that won't be an issue again either. This would be a large enough wattage inverter for the setup you have as well.

  • Recommended Power Inverter for 800 Watt Microwave
    For an 800 watt microwave you would need an inverter with power surpassing that surge max wattage.

You can run other items at the same time with this inverter depending on the wattage of those other items. If you want to be able to run multiple things with high wattage like a small refrigerator or coffee maker at the same time as the microwave, I...
