Expert Answers about Wagan

  • 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...

  • Charging Trailer Batteries While Towing Using the Alternator in a 2016 Ford F-150
  • The problem with charging trailer mounted batteries is that vehicle alternators and the wiring going through, say, a 7-Way trailer connector cannot push back the amperage required to charge up the batteries (or it would take an extremely long time). At best they can maintain the charge level in most cases. But there is a solution to that issue and it is actually similar to what you have suggested. What you need is a DC to DC charger. We do have one rated at 40 amps, # 331-BCDC1240D,...

  • 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...

  • Will Wagan JumpBoost V10 Air Compressor Inflate Trailer Tires to 110 psi
  • The Wagan JumpBoost V10 Air # WC7556 not only has a gauge that reaches 150 psi, but the air pump is rated for that 150 psi. It will take an unknown amount of time to fill a ST235/85R16 tire to 110 psi. I reached out to the manufacturer and they said they know that it can fill a tire to that 110 psi without issue, but they did not document the time to do so. It would depend on the pressure already in the tire. If you were inflating from zero psi, it may take more than the 10 minute runtime...

  • Compatibility of Blu Ray Player and RV Stereo and TV Systems
  • The Jensen RV Stereo # JWM60A will play CD, CD-R, CD-RW, DVD, DVD+RW, DVD-RW, MP3 but unfortunately is not compatible with Blu Ray. There are not many RV systems that have Blu Ray and we don't currently carry any. RV systems seem a little behind as the only inputs on many of these systems are RCA connections although some now have HDMI. If you use a separate Blu Ray player, you will need to determine the input compatibility with your stereo or TV. If you need 12V power, then you...

  • How to Use an AC Powered Air Conditioning Unit on a DC Powered Travel Trailer
  • 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. These figures are averages and you will want to check your unit for exact specifications. If you...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Can Wagan Power Inverter # 02294 Power a Mini-Fridge in a Camper
  • 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...

  • Inverter Recommendation for Trailer Interior for Powering Lighting
  • Do your interior lights power with 12 volts or are they AC power? Are you looking for an inverter to convert to 120 volts? We have inverters like the part # WC3720 which converts 12 volts to 120 which then gives you outlets for the lights to plug into if they are the standard interior style of lights.

  • 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). As noted in the...

  • Power Inverter to Run Fan or Heater in Stock Trailer
  • You may be able to use an inverter, depending on the type of battery on your stock trailer. If it is a charged 12V vehicle battery, then yes, you would be able to use an inverter such as the Power Inverter # WC3720. 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.

  • Recommended Power Inverter for 800 Watt Microwave
  • For an 800 watt microwave you would need an inverter with power surpassing that surge max wattage. I recommend the Power Inverter 1000 Watts with Three AC Receptacles # WC3720 for that application which has a surge power of 2500 watts. 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...

  • Type OF Cell Phones That Work With The Wagan Micro Dynamo Charger Flashlight
  • The Wagan Micro Dynamo Flashlight, Item # 2398, comes with USB and a Mini-USB adapters. It will work with any cell phone with this kind of connection/adapter. If you crank it long enough you will be able to make a 2 minute call. If you are looking for a more robust mini-flashlight that can charge a cell phone, I recommend the Goal Zero Lighthouse Micro Lantern, Item # 287-32006. It has a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, can recharge via a 5-volt USB port, and is solar ready for off-grid/remote...

  • 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...

  • 1,000 Watt Inverter Recommendation for Vehicle
  • We have a 1,000 watt inverter part number # WC3720 which could potentially work well for you, but it's not really designed for mounting in a vehicle dash. You may have to come up with an extension cord plus an outlet to accomplish that. I attached an install video that shows this installed in a vehicle though for you to check out.

  • 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. I have attached...

  • Installing DC Power Into The Sleeping Quarters Of Horse Trailer
  • For DC electricity, I can help you out. You can run a 10 gauge wire like # 10-1-1 sold by the foot from a 6-way or 7-way connection from the 12V to a deep cycle 12V battery and then run the battery to a ground on the trailer. You can use a solenoid like # TR118665 in your tow vehicle if you want to ensure you don't drain the vehicle battery when your truck isn't running. This will isolate the deep cycle 12V trailer battery. From your battery you can run a power inverter like # WC2600...

  • 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 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).

  • Recommended Power Inverter for a 2016 Mercedes Sprinter
  • I have a few different options that will work well with your 2016 Mercedes Sprinter. A lot of people like using the style where the inverter sticks directly out of the 12V cigarette or power port, like the Power Inverter from Wagan # WC2295-6. But since both of your outlets are near the floor, I recommend using the Wagan Elite # WC2600. This power inverter is a little more heavy-duty, and has a cable that is 31-1/2 inches. This will give you the option to move the inverter around a little...

  • Can the Power Inverter 1000 Watts Part # WC3720 Pull 1000 Watts from Each Plug
  • The Power Inverter 1000 Watts with Three AC Receptacles part # WC3720 can only pull 1000W of continuous power at a time between all three plug-ins. Therefore if you have a device that is pulling 1000 continuous watts of power at a time plugged into one of the slots then the other two slots can not be used. I have attached a review video of this product for you.

  • Installation of Wagan Tech 1000 Watt Power Inverter on 2010 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • The cables included with the Wagan Tech # WC3720 are 6 gauge, and are 36 inches in length. 6 ga wire is fine for runs up to 8 feet long. For a longer wire run, say 9 to 10 feet, use 4 gauge. For runs from 11-21 feet, use 2 ga cable. The inverters are circuit protected already but Wagan recommends installing a 120 amp non-sparking (sealed) marine fuse and mounted fuse holder located within one foot of the positive battery terminal. You can find the fuse holder and fuse at any marine supply...
