RE: 50 Amp Receptacle to Inverter

Virtually all 3000 watt inverters will have a hard wire output.

RE: 50 Amp Receptacle to Inverter

So just buy a 50 amp female pigtail and connect to the inverter direct. Both L1 & L2 to the inverter hot, Neutral to Neutral, ground to ground. Set the fridge and water to propane only and disconnect power from the converter. Done.

RE: 12v outlet question

Question....what 12v outlet will handle my inverter safely?None go to 600 watts. Use something like Anderson Powerpoles to connect. I still think my solution above is way easier and no wires draping around.

RE: 12v outlet question

Do you have space for the inverter close to the fuse/breaker panel? If yes consider mounting the inverter right there. Get 12v power from the main battery feed. Use a small transfer switch to power up the single branch circuit that goes to the tv. $50 If by chance the fridge is also on that circuit you will need to set it to propane only. If the converter happens to be on that circuit will need to find the best way to de-power it.

RE: Battery Charging Problem ***UPDATE***

OK so measure what the alternator is putting on the house battery terminals after two hours. If you are less than 14.2 volts maybe the DC-DC booster would help to get a faster charge if desired. Until the issue is quantified there is nothing to resolve.

RE: Built in quiet inverter generator for truck camper?

Fill the generator space with a stack of lithium batteries and inverter for some true quiet power. Cover the roof with solar and you will rarely need the portable.

RE: Did I forget anything? ordering a new Hallmark pop up camper

Did you get dual pane windows?

RE: I have a different kind of electrical problem

The doors will not stay shut? You bought a second EV? Must say it is an odd looking inlet and I agree that pinched ribbon would bug me.

RE: Battery Charging Problem ***UPDATE***

Very nice. Good time to also review your converter to get the most charge from running the generator.

RE: Just bought my first travel trailer

I often say keep the trailer GVWR within the tow rating. I recommend 350/3500 SRW as a minimum for this trailer.

RE: Installing inverter w/charger and transfer switch

No need to go down a rabbit hole of removing-disconnecting-altering-modifying, etc, etc your existing converter, unless you’re wishing for unnecessary work and added grief...Still need to be de-powered to avoid a charging loop.

RE: What does having an appointment mean?

What an appointment really means is your ticket is assigned to that sales writer and he will get the spiff when you come in.

RE: Battery Charging Problem ***UPDATE***

One glaring issue is "less need for temperature compensation". Sorry that is basic chemistry and no "witchery" will get around that need. Charging at -40 requires higher voltage and charging at 115 f requires charging be discontinued.Yes OK and most RVing is closer in the 40 to 110 range and any typical multistage converter will do just fine. And yes camping in -40 will need a lot more preparation than just a temperature compensated charger.

RE: Battery Charging Problem ***UPDATE***

While dry camping in freezing weather, the charging system died for the dual type 24 house batteries (2002 Winnebago Mini)..May also want to review your converter model for better (faster) charging while the generator runs. Cold batteries like to get all the voltage they can get.

Odd looking steer axle. Did the OP send those to you?

RE: 20 year loan for RV?

I agree having multiple loans to leverage all your toys can be a disaster. However in times like these a 20 year loan is more flexible than a 5 year loan. And yes get the one paid before you go in on to the second.

RE: Battery Charging Problem ***UPDATE***

I would get an automatic relay (BIRD) Example here - shop around

RE: Power center problem

If you are measuring 13+ on most pins and less than 9 on a couple pins in the fuse/distribution panel then you have a defective board, poor connection or bad fuse etc right there. Keep poking and eventually you will find the issue with 13 on one side and 9 on the other. Replace or repair is your call. May need to remove the board to inspect.
