All who can help:
Here is the conundrum.
I have a 2 battery
(this winter to be 3) house bank and 2 battery
starting bank (I am the king of redundant systems). I also have a 1500 watt inverter
that is run to the house bank. It seems like the dual voltage frig, when left on 12V direct at night on the hook or tied to the dock
(no shorepower), runs the house bank to nothing overnight.
Would it be better to run the frig on the inverter
with 120AC power versus the 12 V Direct that it is also wired to? Would the load be virtually the same?
My plan for next year at the lake is to hook it to the generator
that will be my impromptu shore power
and use that during high load times (using the microwave oven
during meal prep for instance) and then let the inverter run it the rest of the evening.
Am I doing right here?
