    Dave: My dealer installed a 2000 watt inverter under the frig about a foot from the power panel using 10 AWG wire. It would not run a 750 watt toaster or 800 watt coffee maker. The problem was the wiring in the trailer. I relocated the inverter to the forward storage cabinet next to the 100 ah batteries bank and ran 8 AWG from the shore power to the inverter and 8 AWG from the inverter to the power panel. Three 100 ah AGM batteries are wired using 2 AWG in parallel. Now everything including the microwave works off the battery bank. Perhaps you can talk a little about wire size and distance to get an inverter to work as expected.

      Hello Beth,

      Thank you for contacting us. Here is the experts response:

      Being that far north it is a good idea to add an additive to the fuel to help not only keep the gas in good shape but also protect the lines from freezing. One I really recommend is Iso-HEET. It’s very affordable and just adds directly to the gas. Not only does it help protect during winter months but also cleans the injectors and system when in use so it is a great thing to use at anytime. I will share a link with more info:
