CC supplied a 1000 watt inverter and it was always dropping out on the road. I replaced it with the 2000 watt unit and have never had another problem.
My inverter is 1000 watts that came on camper, so I need at least 2000 watts. Go figure the batteries were cheap. I have a 2500 watt inverter that I'm not using, I was planning on hooking up that inverter to another bank of batteries. I guess I could hookup two banks of batteries to one inverter. What I really need is to install solar panels on roof and DW will not let me do that, drilling holes in the roof and me do it is a no no.
