I have a 1952 Flying Cloud that has no 12v
systems at all. Lights, fridge, water heater are all 120v. Somewhere along the line a PO added a battery up front and a single cigarette style 12v
outlet. For what little boondocking we've done in this trailer (i've had the trailer less than a year) we simply plug a 300w inverter into the cigarette lighter outlet and plug in a floor lamp for light/TV/ etc. It works, but it less than ideal. I've been wondering if I should have a larger more permanent inverter installed and maybe change my single 12v
battery to a couple of golf cart batteries so I'd have a bit more battery life.
Any thoughts/opinions on why I should or shouldn't do this?
I'm going to Telluride next month for the bluegrass festival so we'll be boondocking for nearly a week. would love to be able to use the interior trailer lights instead of packing a floor lamp. I know an inverter "wastes" some power, but this seems like an easier/cheaper solve than trying to rewire the entire trailer for 12v.
Thanks in advance for helping a newbie out.
