Tom
YOU ARE RIGHT I WANTED TO KNOW IF IT WOULD HANDLE THE LOAD AS IS. WE WILL BE USING OUR A/S AS PERMANENT RESIDENCE FOR ABOUT 6MONTHS. WE JUST BOUGHT SOME PROPERTY ON THE GULF. WE WILL HAVE POWER WATER AND SEPTIC.

Tom,

I posted some of it to tell him what wattage draw different appliances will require and he can figure if his circuits will handle the 120 refigerator along with other things running.

I did post the inverter part to ask other forum members what they think. I only plan to use the inverter when towing and it only needs 1 battery with a charge line from the way I figure. This is just to give the 120 refrigerator a dual power so it can be used mobile. You would only need a trailer full of batteries if you intended on using the inverter and were not hooking to shore power. Something I would never do since the heat in this part of the country dictates that you camp with your AC otherwise you might turn to a piece of bacon...........

In that case, although I missed the power draw of your proposed replacement refrigerator, I will bet it is higher than my absorbtion unit. I allowed in another post it may be prudent to check the capability of the charge line.

Good luck with your project!
Tom

I guess one would need a heafter charge line, probably 6 guage to be safe on that one. Looks like the inverter idea has no standing. Glad to see this was hashed before.
Thanks Tom

Which Kenmore model would replace a Dometic RM 75?
