Re: electrical outlets

You can have both 110 and 12 volt plugs installed

Re: electrical outlets

The wall plugs and one outside plug are all 110V AC. You can have 12DC plugs installed (I think just one is standard).

Re: electrical outlets

I had my husband ask this question because I use a cpap machine at night and it is 110. Does anyone out there use a cpap machine and if so how do you run it at night?

You either have to be hooked up to power (110 volt) or use an inverter (12 volt to 110 volt).

Re: electrical outlets

Am I correct in thinking that the outlets supplied will run off the battery, if not connected to shore power? Or is that just the lights? If not, can one plug in an inverter or does one have to fiddle with the electrical system?

Re: electrical outlets

Sandra, the 110V outlets will not run off the battery UNLESS an inverter (takes 12V DC to 110V AC) is installed. The only outlets that will work are the 12V DC ones to power devices with a cigarette lighter plug. And yes, you can plug in a small converter up to about 300W to run small AC appliances. You can have a larger inverter installed, but if you use larger appliances on it, you will drain the batteries REAL fast.

The lights will work, they are all 12V.

Re: electrical outlets

Thanks Jim,
I thought the lights ran on both 110 and 12 volt.

Re: electrical outlets

Sandra, when hooked up to 110V your converter changes the voltage to 12V, charging the battery and running the lights.
