Hi AKOAOKO (can u expand the acronym?)
We do not intend to use a microwave. We usually do a lot of our cooking outdoors on the BBQ/campstove. If it is inclement weather we intend to have the camp stove under the awning and perhaps get the zip on tent structure.
MW,s would use probably 700-1000 watts but usage time is short.

Thanks! I was wondering if it's worth it to haul a microwave with only solar as electrical source. I will be traveling (not camping) with the trailer a bit and there will be no hookup. Sometimes it's nice to be able to warm up something quick for a snack.

akoaoka is the same spelling backward. It's a stack where the entries sequence is the same as a queue... something I thought of long time ago when I learned about computer data structure. It also rhymes with my name (Echo).

You have to have the 1500-watt inverter to run the microwave. Quite a few people have that set-up. Can't run the microwave much though.

Thanks Cathy. That's what I thought so we didn't bother to install an inverter. I guess I have to find other way to warm up a frozen muffin after overnighting at a parking lot. :P

We got the solar and inverter and used it extensively on our trip to Yellowstone last year when we had no hookups. Have had solar on our boat for nearly eight years and wouldn't be without it which is why it was the first option on our trailer. With the way ETI integrates the system into the outlets, just push that little button and you're good to go. However, like everything else, it all depends on how you camp and what you're used to.
