Expert Answers about Wagan

  • How Long Will Automotive Battery Run Power Inverter # 02294 Pulling 400 Watts of Power
  • In order to determine the length of time that an automotive battery will last when using the Power Inverter, # WC3720, pulling 400 watts of power, you will need to know the amp hours of the battery that you plan to use. For example, if your battery has a 90 hour amp rating, you should be able to run the 400 watt continuous load for approximately 2 hours. The higher the amp hour rating on your battery, the longer the battery will last. Please keep in mind that an automotive battery...

  • 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...

  • What is the Difference Between Continuous Power and Peak Surge Power
  • The difference between the continuous power rating and the peak surge power rating is pretty straight forward. Continuous is the amount of constant power the inverter # WC3720 is rated for. So if you are running a refrigerator and coffee machine off of it, they will draw a certain amount of power when running and provided these items do not continuously draw over 1000 watts combined then everything will work. If there is a temporary power surge that lasts only a brief moment as long...

  • 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...

  • Will A 12V DC to 110V AC Converter Run A Coffee Pot?
  • Using a 12V outlet like you mentioned, the Power Inverter 210 Watts w/ USB Port # WC2295-6 will be able to run most residential coffee pots without issue. It will run a coffee grinder too, although running both at the same time may not work because of wattage draw.

  • 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...

  • Troubleshooting Wagen Power Dome Battery Not Charging
  • Since the charging indicator light is illuminated, it would indicate that the power is reaching the unit, but the battery isn't charging. When charging, you'll want to make sure that all the switches on your PowerDome are switched off. According to Wagen, the unit needs to be charged every 2-3 months to keep the battery in good shape. If you fail to do this, the battery would become depleted and would need to be replaced. Wagen doesn't offer the replacement batteries to their vendors,...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • How Reliable is the Emergency Power Dome LT by Wagan
  • I spoke to two of my co-workers here that have the Power Dome LT, item # WC2464 and they both have good things to say about this compact power house. One person has used their Power Dome to charge electronics and the power the television for emergency weather information during a storm, the other has used her Power Dome as a radio for entertainment outdoors, to put air in a tire that went low weekly and to jump start cars for family when their battery went dead. They have also used 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Using Wagan Power Dome # WC2464 to Power Winch
  • The Wagan Power Dome you mentioned, part # WC2464 has a 200 watt/350 watt surge output. This means that the normal operating output is 200 watts, but for brief periods of time, the power pack can output 350 watts. To determine if the Power Dome will have enough capacity for your winch, you will need to look in the owners manual or other literature that came with the winch to find its power demands. This information is sometimes listed on a plate or sticker placed on the winch itself. If...

  • 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 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Can 12 Volt Batteries of Trailer Power AC Power Outlets
  • AC power like what is found in a house is different from DC like the 12 volt battery setup you mentioned. Since you want to convert from DC to AC all you need is the inverter part # WC3720 that you mentioned. It would wire to the battery and then give you three outlets for the appliances you mentioned. I attached a review video for more info on this for you to check out as well.

For larger tires on vans, SUVs and trucks, or for smaller car tires, motorcycle tires, and bicycle tires multiple nozzle adapters are included. In addition, one sports needle is included for quick and easy inflation of rubber and vinyl inflatables, sports balls, and anything else that needs to be aired up. I...

  • Does the Fan of the Wagan Elite 200 Watt PRO Pure Sine Wave Power Inverter # WC2600 Make Much Noise
  • The fan of the Wagan Elite 200 Watt PRO Pure Sine Wave Power Inverter # WC2600 would not be loud enough that it would compete with low level music. You would hardly hear it operate. We haven't had any reliability complaints with this product either so I would say it is reliable. It also comes with a 2 year limited warranty. I attached a review video for this product for you to check out as well.

  • 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,...

  • 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.

  • Connecting Trailer Battery to Same 12 Volt Wire that Charges Breakaway Battery
  • You should have no issue hooking up your trailer battery to the same 12 volt wire that charges your breakaway battery. You will just need to make sure that you do not drain the batteries when they are being used. An isolator or diode is not needed for this application. Then for a power inverter, I recommend looking at the Wagan # WC3720. This will convert 12 volt DC power to 115 volt AC power. A 3 foot DC cable is included to connect directly to the battery. I have attached the installation...
