Re: Help with the inverter
Not sure why someone would say that 12v systems cannot supply more that 1200 watts or so. I have 2 Outback 2800 watt inverters and a 1600 AH battery bank connected with a short run of 4/0 cable which has worked flawlessly for over 7 years now. Having a 12v battery bank makes it easy to use 12v appliances like water pumps and VHF radios, etc. I like having 2 inverters, if I have a problem with one I can still run my house on the other until I can get other repaired, or replaced.
My suggestion would be, don't go with a cheap inverter, stick with name brands, you will be happier in the long run.
