Thanks, good info, I was wondering if I'd need to upgrade my 30A to 50A (knowing it'd be close) with the addition of an electric/propane fridge, but it looks like as long as the AC, water heater, fridge, and microwave aren't running at the same time I shouldn't have to worry. Just need to make sure I only keep the electric element in the water heater on only when i'll actually be using lots of water, eg.showers.

Our experience as well ...and you have to enjoy that electric start on the 3000iS.

I'd recommend measuring the 12 volt devices directly, rather than through the converter.
Or, at least, realize that what the 12 volt devices draw via the converter isn't going to be the same as what it draws from only the battery, because the converter isn't 100% efficient.
