Could Progressive Dynamics Mighty Mini AC/DC Panel Power 30 Amp Welder


What Im trying to do is wire up 110/120V power outlet in the trailer that can run up to 30 amps of AC power to run my welder and a couple other things if needed. What I want to know is will this converter have the capacity to step up the voltage from the battery and be able to deliver that kind of current safely and reliably? I want to be able to install a shore power hookup as well so I can run power from the house or wherever and have it charge the batteries at the same time while still being able to run the DC branch circuits as well as the AC branch circuits? Last part of the question, would this be satisfactory to power a 13.5k RV heat pump or would I need something with a higher load capacity? Thanks.

The Progressive Dynamics Mighty Mini AC/DC Panel and Converter/Smart Charger # PD4060K that you referenced will work for your needs as it's rated for 30 amp/120 volt AC power like you need for your welder. When running the welder though I'd recommend not having other accessories power as well. A 13.5k BTU AC unit would also be able to ran by this as well since this can put out 3,600 watts at 120 volts.

Normally a 13.5k BTU AC unit requires 2,750 watts at start up and 1,250 once running.
