120 Volt System Session 3: What components Run on AC

Not all appliances in your RV operate on 120-Volt power and some even require both 12-Volt and 120-Volt power such as the refrigerator! This section covers the different appliances and their power requirements as well as some that run only on 120-volt power supplied by the 12-Volt batteries through an inverter. These items include small appliances such as the TV but can also be larger items such as the refrigerator through a bigger inverter and larger “bank” of batteries.
