Love inverters, when we would cruise it was a defrost cycle for the fridge because it would be the only load for the genny. 6.5 KVA with a 100 watt load did not make sense but the martinis got slushy. To the rescue, inverter/charger, now the fridge runs the ice stays hard and the batteries last 7 years.


I was taught to respect my elders but it is getting harder to find them!

Mike it is a 2000 watt pure sine wave with automatic transfer switch. I already have a battery charger so that option was unnecessary.

You can call them with questions. They seem very knowledgeable. They can help in selecting and wiring your unit.
