  • Equipment Needed To Run An RV Air Conditioner Unit Off Of Solar Power
  • Running an AC unit solely off of battery power is going to require a large battery bank. You'll need to know the amp draw of your AC unit per hour to know how big of a battery bank you'll need and also how big of a solar power system is needed to replenish the energy used from the batteries. At minimum we recommend a battery bank with at least 700 amp hours. You'll need a solar panel kit like the Go Power Solar AE-6 All Electric System with 2 MPPT Solar Controllers # 342-75011 or larger...

  • How to Determine Correct Inverter for TV and Coffee Machine
  • I can definitely help you determine the correct inverter for your TV and coffee machine. To figure out the correct inverter, you simply need to know the amount of watts your TV and coffee machine use. While TVs don't generally consume much wattage - for example the Jensen LED RV TV - 40" Screen # JTV4015DC only uses 70 watts - coffee machines use up quite a bit of energy, often over 1,000 watts. So I think you hit the nail on the head with the 2,000 watt Go Power Industrial Pure Sine...

  • 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.

  • What Is A Good Inverter For the 350-450 Price Range.
  • A power inverter, or inverter, is a power electronic device or circuitry that changes direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC). So it will turn your battery power (DC) into (AC) like your house. This lets you use appliances and devices that are only capable of using AC power. The Go Power Heavy-Duty Modified Sine Wave Inverter - 3,000 Watts - 12V # 34280178 is my choice. It has inverter and transfer switch functions so you don't need to manually switch from shore power to inverter....

  • Recommended 50 Amp Transfer Switch To Accommodate Shore Power, Generator Power, And Inverter Power
  • A transfer switch is only going to have two receptacles to accept power from so you wouldn't be able to connect all of your systems together, but I do have a solution for you. You would need to use a 50 amp transfer switch like the Progressive Dynamics Transfer Switch # PD52 and connect it to your shore power and generator power to the trailer, giving you an automatic switch over between the two sources, as you can see in the attached video below. With that installed you can then wire...

  • Would Go Power Industrial Pure Sine Wave Inverter # 34278157 Work to Power 13.5k BTU RV AC Unit
  • 13,500 BTU AC units like the Advent part # ACM135C require 1,450 watts so the 3,000 watt inverter part # 34278157 that you referenced would easily cover that. Given the very specific limitations of your situation this would be the best solution overall. A solar panel kit might help too though like with the Go Power part # 34272628 which can provide 200 watts to help charge the batteries.

  • Can Go Power 1,500 Watt Inverter be Wired Into Transfer Switch in Place of Generator
  • Since a transfer switch will only switch between two ac sources, if your initial transfer switch only has shore power connected to it then you could wire in the Go Power Inverter # 34279950 you referenced to provide power to the coach. You need to be conscious of what loads you try to run using the inverter (being careful not to exceed 1500 watts). Be sure to wire the converter into the switch and be mindful that you don’t want the converter to be powered by the inverter. Pulling power...

  • Is The Progressive Dynamics Pure Sine Wave Inverter #PD1210SR Transfer Switch Automatic Or Manual?
  • The Progressive Dynamics Pure Sine Wave Inverter # PD1210SR controls the activation of the transfer switch. Whenever proper AC voltage is present at the AC input the relay is inactive and shore power will pass through automatically to the AC output. Whenever the Inverter is powered on and no power is detected at the AC input, the inverter will activate and send pure sine wave power to the AC output. When the inverter detects power at the AC input then it will deactivate the relay and pass...

  • 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 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 what I recommend...

  • Recommended Inverter Wattage For Powering A Refrigerator With 1.1amp Draw
  • You will not want to wire the batteries in series as this will increase the voltage but not the amp hours. Wiring three 12v 55ah batteries is just going to give you a 36v 55ah battery which will not be compatible with an inverter. Instead you'll want to wire the three batteries in parallel to have a 12v 165ah battery. The Go Power Industrial Pure Sine Wave Inverter - GFCI - 2,000 Watt - 12V # 34278156 you were looking at is going to be more than enough to power your refrigerator.
