Is there no inverter in your van???

Or are we taking replacement?

Hi Alan,

Ours was also born without an inverter. The previous owner had inverter aversion due to inverter problems in prior motor home ownership.

Kind regards

Theo

I use a 600W which will easily do what you want.

Hi The Hagans
Have you considered a factory retrofit.
Once you start collecting toys that require 240Volt, you tend to collect more.
A factory retrofit would of course require a pre-arranged trip to the Factory, but ensures compatability with your BT and toys.
Have a think about the toys you would like to run, work out the wattage required, and then formulate your decision.
We mostly find that we don't use the inverter very much, as during T V times of day we usually have the Honda gen set running anyway for the aircon.
Cheers
