His acquisition of that inappropriate combiner box tells me he may not be thinking his proposed system through thoroughly before diving in to the project.

In away you are right, other than the combiner box. I am collecting the components and information.


Wow, yo want to come over to my house! Sounds like you got it all figured out and it was a great resource! Think I may invest in a few small inverters, my primary is a Samlex 3000 watt pure sine job, due to a sub personality, I have a tendency to by the best, but I have scaled down a bit.

Now....how to run at least one air conditioner without running the generator....

Thanks again for all that provided input, this is defiantly a learnign experience and I want to make sure I know what I am doing....at least some what where I am not breaking out the fire extinguisher...

I hope you are kidding, otherwise you are further supporting my opinion that you really are not properly researching what you want to do. Your motor home probably cannot carry enough batteries to properly support running an air conditioner, even with a large enough Inverter to do so.

Air conditioning and electric heaters draw a huge amount of power. Typically not practical to operate via inverter/battery power.

Was just kidding on the AC. I am installing on elf those LP Gas extend a stay for that, so I do not have to drive the RV to a propane tank every time, plus run my grill.
