Help Me Configure Aircon Install
Hi, I have a 230v/50hz genset. The boat is wired to accept 120v/60hz shore power and has a 100A/2500W inverter charger on 120/60. It will also accept 230v/50hz shore power and has (2) 80A chargers and a 2000W inverter on 230/50. Most sailing is in 120v/50hz lands. I want to add 2 aircon units capable of running on either shore power or genset. Certain manufacturers have said their 220v units can be run on 50 or 60 hz. So, I want to install them so that I can run them off the genset OR 120/60 shore power. To make it more complex, I want to run the smaller of the two off an inverter also (we can assume that the inverter will start and run it for now).

I think I can wire them up to take power from the genset and 230/50 inverter. Any ideas on what I do to run from US shorepower? Any better ways to do this?
