Video Transcript for Wagan 1000 Watt Power Inverter Review

Speaker 1: Today we're gt be taking a look at the Wagan Tech Power Inverter 1,000 Watts with 3 AC Receptacles, part number WC3720. This heavy-duty inverter can give you 1,000 watts of continuous power. That's enough to run most household appliances, and also great for road trips, on the job site quick applications, and for convenience in emergency situations while camping.When comparing this to other power inverters on our website, this one's going to be the most heavy-duty. 1,000 watts far exceeds the capacity of other inverters. This one does require a little bit more install, as you have to hook it up to the battery directly, and if you want to store it inside the vehicle it can be more difficult to run the wires from your inside to the outside. The other inverters typically plug in through your power outlet, so they're just plug and play.

If you need that extra juice, this is the way to go.It has three power receptacles, two USB ports, and an on/off switch. It comes with one 3 foot power cable and one 3 foot crown cable. There's ring eyelets at each end of the cable that can be connected to your battery and the other end securely connected to your inverter. Its small, portable design will allow you to take it out of your truck when you need it. Just connect the positive cable to the positive on your battery.

This could be noted by red coloring and a plus symbol. Connect your negative to the negative cable on your battery, and this can be noted by a black cable and the minus symbol. Then connect the black to the negative on your inverter and the red to the positive on your inverter.Let's take a look and see what this thing can do. We can power our grinder here, and plenty of other tools. With 1,000 watts at 120 volts, that's roughly 8.3 amps.

It has built in safety features such as auto-reset, short circuit protection, overload protection, low battery alarm and shut down, and a cooling fan. The two USB ports put out 5 volts and share a 3 amp output.Here we've got our Redarc mounted inside of our vehicle. This is ideal for long road trips. This way, you got kids in the back, they can plug in their Xbox, laptops. It's also great for business trips.

Here we've got our laptop plugged in, and it's powered directly off of our inverter here. If you need to use your laptop or you need to charge it up on a long road trip, this is perfect for those traveling businessmen; you're ready to go at any time. Never miss a meeting, Skype conference, or email with this system.When you're done with work, plug in your Xbox and have some fun. Whether you're out on a road trip, taking a break at a rest stop, you have two jobs and you're taking a break between jobs chilling your truck, on the slopes but you're taking a moment to warm up, so you can stop and have some fun, stream some movies from your gaming system, pop in your favorite game, hang out with friends anywhere, anytime. With these three outlets you can use multiple devices and push your vehicle's utility to the limits.Now, you are going to need some additional wire to run this up from the battery from here. You can get some additional wire at etrailer.com with part number BBW20026. This will have enough wire to run from the battery back to your Redarc in any position, and will also be ideal if mounting it inside of your RV, because it's a 24 foot length of wire, 3 gauge thickness so it can handle the amperage drawn 00:03:16. Now, if running your own wire, you're likely going to need some new eyelets to connect it to your battery and to your inverter. You can pick some of these up at etrailer.com with part number SWC57048.Now, if you're mounting your inverter inside your vehicle permanently, it is a good idea to have your cable hooked to a circuit breaker or fuse just in case of emergencies, if there's a collision or the wire would short out, it wouldn't cause and welding to the vehicle or potentially a fire hazard. The circuit breaker we're using here on our project is part number PK54871PL, and this is rated for 100 amps so it'll be able to provide plenty of juice back to our 1,000 watt inverter. When hooking up the circuit breaker for your inverter, you're going to want to put the battery positive to your inverter on one side of the circuit breaker, and then a cable from the circuit breaker to the battery on the other side. This will ensure that you're properly protected. That completes our look at the Wagan Tech Power Inverter 1,000 Watts with 3 AC Receptacles.

  • 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...

  • 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...

    To connect your Redarc In-Vehicle BCDC Battery Charger - Dual Input - DC to DC - 12V/24V - 40 Amp # 331-BCDC1240D, you will need the 60-Amp MIDI Fuse Kit for Redarc In-Vehicle 40-Amp BCDC Battery Charger # 331-FK60. This will protect your vehicle and battery from potentially damaging overcurrent from short circuits or overloads.

  • 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...

  • Powering a Refrigerator in a Trailer While Towing
    Some items in a trailer or RV will run off of 12 volt DC power or AC power so if your fridge runs when not connected to shore power then it will run off of the battery. That battery can receive a maintenance charge from the 12 volt circuit on a 7-Way trailer connector but the fridge would draw power faster than the 12 volt circuit can charge. What you would need to do to provide the best charge to the battery is use a DC to DC charger while you are towing such as # CTEK40186. If the...

    I recommend using one of the Kat's Heaters pads, like part # KH22200, from the linked selection as they are specifically designed for batteries. These do plug into an AC power source though so you would need access to that kind of outlet or use an inverter like the Go Power # 34280175 or Wagan # WC3720 to convert DC power to AC power for the heater. I would be hesitant to use one of the ThermaHeat RV Dump Valve Pipe and Elbow Heating Pads, like part # 277-000161 that you referenced,...

    Your fantastic fan will run off 12V power, so it draw power directly from your deep cycle battery and does not need an inverter. If your water pump requires 110V power instead of 12V, then you can use the Go Power Heavy-Duty Modified Sine Wave Inverter - 12V - 800 Watts # 34280175 for that water pump and probably some other electrical needs at the same time. You can use the alligator clips on your battery or you can use the Bulldog Winch Power Lead Extension for ATV/UTV Winches - 6 Gauge...

    For the application that you are attempting, you will need to install a battery and wire the trailer to run off that battery instead of running off the shore power at a campsite. If all of your trailer lights and appliances run off of 120V then the 12 volt battery is not going to power them. you will need to add 12 volt accessories and lights to the trailer. If the trailer currently uses a converter from the shore power and the accessories and lighting run on 12 volts then you can run them...

  • 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...

  • Battery Isolation Solenoid Installation on a Cab Over Camper
    A deep cycle battery can be used in this scenario with no problems as long as it is wired properly. A deep cycle battery is capable of longer run times, more amp hours = better battery, and more charging cycles for deep discharges. I recommend using a Group 24, 28, or 32 Deep Cycle battery. Wiring your truck battery to a secondary 12v Deep Cycle battery through the Battery Isolation Solenoid , # TR118665, will prevent the cab over camper from drawing power from your truck battery when...

  • 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...

  • Connecting the Hopkins 12-Volt Power Inverter Adapter for 7-Way to a Power Inverter
    Thank you for the purchase, and the Hopkins 12-Volt Power Inverter Adapter for 7-Way, RV Trailer Connector # HM11147650 can be pretty easily connected to a power inverter, but cannot be used with the Wagan Elite # WC2600 you mentioned. The reason is that this inverter uses an adapter cord which goes from a 12 volt accessory outlet and plugs right into the back of the inverter; there are no terminals which the adapter will be able to attach to.

  • Can Wagan Elite 200 Watt PRO Pure Sine Wave Power Inverter WC2600 Power Coffee Pot
    The Wagan Elite 200 Watt PRO Pure Sine Wave Power Inverter # WC2600 can deliver a continuous AC-power output of 200-watts as well as a brief peak surge output of up to 400-watts, but very few coffee makers will be compatible since most use substantially more than 200-watts. Naturally the size/capacity of the coffee maker matters here, as does the unit's age (and hence its energy-usage rating). A small, new and energy-efficient coffee pot might just squeak by on 200-watts. You'll want to...

  • How to Charge an Extra Battery in the Truck Bed on My 2012 Chevrolet Silverado While Driving
    The best option would be to use the NOCO Genius Mini # 329-GENM1, and charge the battery when shore power is available, or use the charger in conjunction with an inverter part # WC3720 when the truck is running. If you wanted to use the factory 7-way you could use the 12-Volt Power Inverter Adapter, # HM11147650, to provide DC power to the inverter. If the DC outlet in your truck is ran directly off of the trucks charging system, then you could use it to maintain a battery that is fully...

  • 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...

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.

    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).

    The Wagan Power Inverter # WC3720 that you referenced should be able to run your mini-fridge in your camper without any problems. To confirm this check your appliance for how many watts are required. If the wattage is not listed you can simply determine this number by multiplying the number of amps by the number of volts (amps x volts = watts). This inverter has a continuous power rating of 1000 Watts. I have attached a brief installation video as well as the installation instructions...

    One thing to note first is that the vehicle's 7-way +12V power circuit being key-controlled can be changed to provide power at the trailer connector at all times. Some vehicles keep their +12V hot at all times while others are key controlled. You can easily make yours an always-on setup by re-routing the wire for the 12V power circuit directly to the battery, connecting it through a 40-amp breaker like # PK54540.

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...

Apart from that, you would be able to use a generator such as the Goal Zero Yeti 150 Solar Generator # 287-42060 which is safe for indoor use and has an AC inverter so you can plug in a fan or heater for your children.
