mig welder install...

Has anyone installed a 110 mig welder into a storage bay by chance? I'm thinking about doing it.

Never installed one in my bay, but have used them plenty. MIG means metal inert gas and that implies a gas tank, there are 110 cu ft varieties and the small tanks. Either takes a lot of space. If you are only after the flux core wire capability, then no tank is needed. I have a 180 amp 110 MIG that I sometimes use with flux core wire but it needs a lot of amps. I think a 15 amp circuit might not work reliably. If you are after or have a smaller amp rating then maybe a 15 circuit might work. Ot sure what you mean by installed in the RV? Plugged into the RV circuits? If so be careful, do the math.

I weld and like to fabricate things. I was thinking of using the generator bay, since we don't have a generator, and bolting it in on a slide out tray. Since we are attached to shore power I figured it wouldn't be much trouble to use shore power for the welder also. Hadn't even coincided plugging the welder into the MH.
