When you say 9 amps AC total, do you mean the pump you use is also an AC powered pump? Or is that some extra amps?
Hi ThereAndBack full disclosure I am one of the largest dealers of Velair for the US. I live aboard an Island Spirit 401 with my family
of 5 and try to escape the dock
as much as possible. So I not only sell them I understand the cruising lifestyle and the limitations traditional AC's have.
So your goals of cooling your cabin
on the batteries overnight is exactly our objective and it is possible depending on your battery bank and other components on your boat
check out our website, still working on it but functional. You will find additional information there. I also have a 24v DC 16k BTU that is 40% more efficient that the Velair (not on website yet) but it's also double the price
and there is the complexity of the 24v system, unless you have it as a bank.
we are cruisers like you and here to help, my number is on the site give me a call, I'd be happy to chat about AC on inverters.
