Magnum MMS inverter

I have a 2001 Dutch Star that has no inverter. :-( I would like to do some boondocking and have the opportunity to purchase a Magnum MMS inverter, used twice, for $300. This includes the remote and most of the cable needed to install. I need to run several lamps, a 32" flat screen in the evening for about 2 hrs and the fridge, although it can run on propane. Can someone tell me if this inverter is the proper unit for my needs?

Thanks everyone!

Looks like a good deal depending on it's age. I would say go for it as long as it has enough watts and you have enough battery.

Fantastic deal if it the MMS1012 model, Inverter/Charger.
Sells for around 1000 plus 200 for the remote.
The S is pure sine wave model...good
Has an internal transfer switch will transfer seamlessly...good

It seems a waste of power to run lamps off the inverter when they can be ran straight from the 12 volt system, there are always losses when inverter or charging.

The fridge uses very little propane, not worth running off the inverter.

Will run all your TVs no problem.

None of my outlets work unless I'm plugged into shore power or am running the generator. I always thought that was odd but was told I need an inverter to run them. I'm on the laptop a lot working so really need a source of power and don't want to dirty up the quiet time with a constantly running genny.

This group is wonderful sharing so much knowledge to we junior members. Many thanks!

Don't forget to unplug your converter charger.
