I have been poking around asking some basic questions concerning inverters and batteries on this forum and Google searches. I have compiled some info and would like to present it to the forum and see if you could punch some holes my ideas. It's happened before
The jist of it...I want more battery for dry camping and I need to run an LCD TV that is 110v a little in the morning, and I found a 650w blow dryer for the GF. Hence the need for an inverter.
The inverter I am looking at: Xantrex PROwatt SW 1000 along with its hard-wired remote, to be mounted in my pass-through storage. One outlet to the interior (with the remote) and one to be accessed from the inverter. I plan to mount it close to the pass-through door to access the other outlet and read voltages. And, as recommended, use 0 awg wiring to the batteries (same length), and a 150w inline fuse.
The batteries I'm looking at are the Trojan T105. Triguy uses the T145's but I would like to try these first. If i need more power, I'll upgrade if the system works. Triguy, I'd definitely like your input on everything concerning this (battery box, cables, mounting, fitment, upgrading, charging, etc.). I'm also somewhat concerned that my converter will charge the 6v's correctly. Not sure what converter manufacturer/model I own yet. I'll take a look if it's a concern.
The battery box I'm looking at, at this time, is this...
Battery Box To Hold Duel Trojan T105 's
I like the battery disconnect mount location but would use the black version (Blue Sea m-Series PN 6006200). I'd rather have it be a bit stealthy. I'm also looking for the smallest foot print for a (2) 6v battery box. So this box is just a thought, the top looks like it takes a bit of real estate but can accommodate T145's later if wanted. Batteries and disconnect fit pretty good from what I see in the last photo. It's winter, but I probably need to move my TT cover out of the way and get an idea how much access I have (I bought a 2012 Salem Cruise Lite 221RBXL). This paragraph really is my main concern.
Any suggestions, concerns, etc. is much welcomed. I'd like to get this figured out and purchased so I can get some real weight measurements before I buy my WDH this spring. I know these batts are going to add some tongue weight (well, which ever way I go. Could be 12v's).
Oh, and may be Turb's can help with some custom cabling.
