12 Volt Battery Session 8: Inverters

Dry camping or “boondocking” is camping in an area without an external electrical connection and water hookups. To operate appliances that only run on 120-volt power, an inverter will take 12-volt power/energy from the house batteries and provide 120-volt power to small items like the TV/DVD player. Larger inverters can power appliances like the refrigerator using a large bank of house batteries.
