Jubal,

Thanks for the quick reply. This is becoming somewhat clearer. May just call escape and have them do the same install you have.

Who can tell me if the 1,500 inverter that Escape puts in their 21 foot is True sine wave or Modified Sine Wave ?

GCS,

I am working on finding out, but all indications point to true sine wave. Will let you know when ETI responds to my email.

inverters

I didn't get the invert-er from ETI which now looking things over I should have . ETI uses simplex or go-power right ?? I have a 700 watt microwave and a hair dryer for wife (I don't need one ) So I'm thinking of using a 1000watt mounting it right next to my dual 6volt batteries from ETI . ETI wired a separate line to the microwave cabinet so I can plug that into the inverter and then use other plug to go under dinette for hair dryer ? What advice does anyone have ?

Are there other inverters that are just as good as what ETI uses ?

Our 1500W is a Samlex. Xantrex a good brand but don't think 1000 will run that microwave.

The issues with running a microwave/hair dryer and inverter sizing were discussed in this thread:
www.escapeforum.org/forums/f9/inverter-not-working-6477-3.html

Considering only a small incremental cost for the added capacity I would just put in a 1500W and be done with it.
Others can probably comment on quality of inverters but I have no reason to believe that Samlex, Go-Power or Xantrex would let you down. The real question is how are you planning to put the energy back in your batteries?

I got on the inverter band wagon and had the 1500w installed. It seems like a solution in search of a problem. Coulda/shoulda saved the dough. It would have bought plenty of brewski!

Mine is a Samlex 1500 Watt, pure sine wave. Always good though to call and ask them directly, since there are sometimes changes to components from one model year to another.

inverters

We have the dual 6 volt 230 amps I believe from ETI and 160 watt solar .The microwave would be for less then 2 min max and hair dryer on low for 10min or so ? I've seen on you tube 1000watt work 700 watt microwaves and small hair dryers . After looking at inverters I think I want pure sign for better A/C power .I still haven't gone down to boat to see if microwave will work off the 1000 watt inverter that i installed 2 yrs ago .
