We are about to order a Ventana 4037 all-electric version.
The question I have is... Are all the 110 outlets connected to the inverter?...
The reason I ask is....I really need a cabinet that has outlets for 12vdc (powered from the coaches batteries)....AND...a 110vac outlet (that is on the same AC Bus that powers the Air Conditioning Unit). If I had my dream of dreams...the cabinet would have:
* 12vdc outlet
* Split 110vac receptacle with one outlet on the same bus as the a/c unit...the other running off of the inverter.
* A CATV outlet
The reason for the CATV is for connecting a cable modem when we stay at Disney's Ft. Wilderness Campground.
The reason for the split outlet is to connect our Control Products Freeze Alarm. The Freeze Alarm system calls us whenever shore power is lost or the temperature exceeds a programmable set point. When we leave our pets in the camper...we rely on the Alarm to notify us of power failure or air conditioning failure so that we know to return quickly to rescue the pups from the Florida heat. Our setup requires the 12vdc to power a Cobra Phonelynx (Bluetooth bridge). The 110vac on the same bus as he Air Conditioner is the normal power source for the Freeze Alarm. If it senses a power outage...it will auto dial up to three numbers to report the Alarm condition. It uses w 9vdv battery as a power source in event the shore power is lost. The inverter powered 110vac outlet could keep the Bluetooth enabled cellphone charged.
I don't know where the coaches outlets get their power...and where I can power this system. I prefer to wire this to a cabinet over the sofa next to the kitchen...to keep the components out of sight.
I'm wondering if I need to talk to the factory about pre-wiring this option...or if it's something I could easily do on my own.
Thanks so much!
