Re: 50/60Hz 115 v reverse cycle air conditioning

We run our Webasto on 50 and 60 hz and it works fine. Probably some reduced efficiency at 50, but we don't notice. You need to make sure the pump is rated for 50 and 60 as well. Our boat is 240 so we need no step down transformer. Just plug and go in 240/60 or 220/50. All consumers wired to shore power or genset can take either. Of course, there is an inverter or a single leg for everything else (which is just wash machine and outlets).

Thank you for reminding me. Since a 115 v 50/60 Hz pump is more difficult to find than 230 v 50/60 Hz pump I asked Webasto and they pointed me here.

It's a little pricey but you have to do what you have to do.
