Glad you're leaving, the swaying palms, sunrises, and sunsets are almost to much to take. :)))))

Got a question - What brand of inverter do you have? We have been looking at solar to charge the batteries but kind of mystified by the DC->AC inverter thing.


We have a Xantrex RS3000 inverter.

If you haven't already, I'd invite you to check out our RV Electrical Systems page - http://www.rv-dreams.com/rv-electrical.html

It takes you from the very basic all the way through the more complicated in layman's terms. Hope it helps.

Hey Dave,

If you are in the market for an inverter I recommend a hybrid inverter. Magnum makes one. The advantage of the hybrid is that it can 'assist' the shore power if you need to pull more juice than the shore power can supply. Like when you are driveway surfing at a friends house and he only have 15 amps available, the hybrid can step up and give you the extra you need for a short while to run a microwave or a hair dryer without tripping your friend's 15 amp breaker. Once the heavy load is done it (the inverter) turns around and puts that juice back in the battery. It's the cat's meow!
