No set up costs. Forget your inverter
, just run your generator
for power and trickle charge your batts.
A good marine generator
installed with a charger/inverter and a good set of batts will run you 15 to 20 k and last maybe 5 years.
Do the math. How much do you use your boat? How long are you going to live?
I agree. If my Northern Lights
4.5 kw ever gives up the ghost, there is no way I am paying to replace it when I can get a Honda
2000i at 1/7 to 1/10 the price
