  • Powering A Small Fridge While On A Boat
  • To charge the battery while the boat is running you would need to install solar panels which depending on your boat might not be an option. Typically most people run multiple batteries in parallel to run their appliances/equipment. Since you'll be running a fridge I recommend a deep cycle battery like the Bright Way Deep Cycle RV or Marine Battery - AGM - 12V - 110 Ah - Group 30H Item # BRW44FR. Deep cycle batteries are designed to provide a steady amount of current over a long period of...

  • Powering Mini Fridge with 1000 watt Power Inverter
  • The 1000 watt Power Inverter, # WC3720 that you linked to is a modified sine wave inverter capable of up to 1000 watts continuous, 2500 surge. You will need to check your appliance for how many watts are required for operation. 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). Once this can be determined, we can identify the needed size of a battery bank for operation.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • What Two Fuses Need to Get Pulled to Flat Tow 2014 Honda CR-V
  • When it comes to the procedure for a specific vehicle for flat towing you have to go with what the manufacturer recommends. Either by what's in the owners manual or by contacting the manufacturer of the vehicle. Based on what you listed you would need to leave the ignition in ACC mode and the two fuses you mentioned of 19 and 20. We actually had the chance to install the # RM76512 on a 2014 Honda CR-V just like yours and I attached an install video that shows which fuses had to be bypassed.

  • Can Charging Station Be Run From Same 12V Power as RV Television Circuit?
  • The Charging Station for RVs - 2 USB Ports - 12V Socket - Black # DG61023VP could possibly tap into the same wire as the television, but there is more information needed. You will need to determine what fuse or circuit breaker is used for that television wiring to determine if that is wise. If you are unsure it is definitely better to just run a separate power wire for the charging station so you don't cause any damage from overloading that circuit.
