Inverter Voltage out put

I just checked the voltage of the inverter, 98-105, no load or in standby, with load about 110 to 112, batteries (4 - 6 volt) are full charged and about a year old, posts are clean and full of water. I have never checked the voltage before, have had MH 4 years, (its a 2004 40' TS) the inverter is a 2100 watt xalenta. Do these voltages sound about right, or is there a way to adjust the voltage. I have in the past seen labels that say 110/120 volt on appliances, give me some help, if you guys think I need to do anything, Thanks, Curt

I think they are a little low. Most Air conditioners will cut out around 109 volts, you can damage AC stuff around 109 and below.

Under load is what is important and your voltages sound okay when under load.

Reading the voltage on a modified sine wave versus a full sine wave will be different. Based on your readings, it looks normal for a MSW

Yeah, chances are your meter isn't very accurate if its a modified sine inverter. Some may be far off - I've got one analog meter that reads about 70% of actual when used with a modified sine power source.

Most Air conditioners will cut out around 109 volts, you can damage AC stuff around 109 and below.
That's not much of an issue when talking about inverter output. He doesn't have enough batteries to operate the a/c for more than a minute or so.
