Itasca Suncruiser diesel owners needed

what are you using for batteries. Under the steps I have 3 850 CCA New Batteries that start it in a few seconds. very impresses on how it starts now International dealers have these batterys on sale for $88 exchange.
but my RV batterys are 1 new 850 RV battery bought last yr and 2 used 4 yr old large 6 volts hooked into the 12 volt; we just dry camped 6 days without starting the generator.
when I bought the Suncruiser it had the factory TV up frt above the dash plugged into the factory invertor that always hummed if left plugged in .. the TV died last yr and wife asked for a TV in rear bedroom which has a 12 volt plug in wall from factory. we bought a new 110 volt TV DVD combo that works thru a 300 watt invertor that's plugged in that 12 volt plug. as log as the furnace doesn't start it water pump. the TV works fine..but when they do the invertor shuts off for minute,then starts again? power meter on wall says 90 % charged even after week camping too.what do you use for TV when u dry camp.

Those cheap 150-300 watt inverters are often very sensitive to voltage drops that occur when a high current device starts. Your little inverter is at the end of the line after going through the master breaker, individual line breaker, and cable length from the battery to the outlet and back.



Many of the TV/DVD combo units are powered by 12 or 19 volts. Do you have an external power supply on it? If so, a better solution might be a DC-DC converter that matches the output voltage of the external supply of the TV.

DC-DC Convertor.

don't know what you mean by a DC-DC convertor. what if I get a better quality 300 Pure Sine convertor?
