I need a bigger inverter for the refrigerator and it's one I already have. What I was thinking about doing was turning the battery disconnect off and plugging in my camper to have 120 volts, that way I could have the microwave on, plus the tv

seems that the factory uses group 27 12 volt batteries. My 335 with a residential reefer has 4 of them and a 2000 watt inverter. I would prefer 4-6 volt Trojans but will make the change when the ones I have die. I also added an additional 1000 watt inverter for the TVs, cell phones and my CPAP.

4 6 volt units are better for SOC and life but I won't spend the money and eliminate 4 good batteries.

I got four 6 Volt Interstate batteries, but they were not properly wired. Only one pair were getting charged.

The Silverback 29RE does not have space for four 6 volt batteries. The dealer installed two 12 volt batteries, but did not wire them correctly. I didn't figure that out until I got it home. Several threads on here addressing that issue. I did add a third 12 volt of the exact same brand and size in parallel with the other two. The residential refer will run all day on the inverter with no issues. We are really happy with the residential refer.

I guess I'm lucky this far. I have one 12v battery and a residential refer. Now it is not a side by side but I have never had the inverter not keep up with the fridge. I have had 14 hour days with stops for over 2 hours (tv not running). I know it keeps up because I check it every time I stop.

I plan on adding another battery (not sure why) but it makes sense if I ever go longer...
