Electrical System 5.0 Classic
Since the 5.0 is in it's new home country it is about time for us to get the electrical part solved.
As you know overhere we use 230V at 50Hz instead of your usual 110V/60Hz.
As i see it i have a few options:
1. Buy a converter with enough wattage (2000?) which changes 230 into 110V and place that converter right between the shorepower line and the WFCO powerstation. In that way i can keep using the powerstation and all the outlets will have 110V. The same goes for the fridge.
is there a possibility to change out the converter from the powerstation for a 230V suitable one? In that case when we hook the trailer up to shorepower the outlets will have 230V, one thing to remember is that, in this case, we need a smaller (190Watts) 230/110 converter just for the fridge. I'm guessing the 10Hz difference won't hurt the fridge.
I have to say, the latter option is my first choice.
To make things easier it would be nice to have an electrical scheme for the 5.0. I contacted ETI but no luck, there's no such thing as a electrical scheme according to Reace.
Maybe one of you guys has something cooked up? And if so, is willing to share that hard labour?
Does anyone has a suggestion which converter to use instead of the stock one?
I'm open for suggestions.
