Generator controller and hybrid inverter?
I wonder if this can be done in a Sunseeker 2290s:
1: Replace the converter with a Magnum Energy MSH3012-M inverter, and move all house power circuits to it. This guarantees that all power coming in is at 120 volts. If there is a brownout at a campground, the inverter will sense it and draw from the batteries to make up for the lost voltage.
2: Add a generator controller. This is used so that if the batteries fall below 60% charge, the generator will fire up and run until they are at 90% charge.
3: Add a Progressive Industries 30 amp EMS (HW-30C model) hardwired in, as protection against miswires, and 240 volt dryer outlets.
Magnum Energy seems to have the best system, with a control panel, generator controller, battery monitor and temperature sensor, and the inverter. However, the inverter by itself coupled with an Onan Energy Command EC-30W would do almost as well.
The advantage of this setup is threefold. The batteries will not be drained dry (assuming no quiet hours and the genset has fuel), one can use electrical appliances without worry about turning on and off the generator, and there isn't a worry about over or under voltage destroying appliances. Finally, the EMS keeps the dryer outlets from destroying the vehicle's electrical system.
Has anyone done this as a mod?
