We have an old Freedom 7 (750w) that we never hooked up on the inverter
side. With the recent electrical
upgrade, I'd like to hook it up. But the manual is fuzzy on one thing.
It's rated for 15A which is fine for underway. We don't have much demand. Shore power
is 30A, so is the 15A breaker going to throw if it's in pass through? I would hope that the breaker manages only the inverter's output and not the pass through. I'd like to put the inverter
between the shorepower and the AC panel and just refrain from drawing over 15A when on battery
. (Knowing that the breaker will trip if we do... no big) The alternate installs in the manual require separating and dedicating the inverter to part of the panel. We only have 4 circuits fed from a bus, so I don't want to buy a new panel or hack up the current
Any tips/warnings welcome.
