STEP 3: INSTALL AN INVERTER

When your RV in not plugged into electricity (camping off-grid,) an inverter is required if you plan on using appliances, watching TV, or plugging something into the power receptacles (outlets) of your RV. There are many sizes and types of inverters. To keep things simple, Sun Power RV offers two choices of inverters. The GP-HS1500-12 High Surge Inverter for smaller RVs and the GP-IC-2000-12 Inverter Charger for large RVs. Both are pure sine wave inverters that produce an exact replica of AC power for sensitive electronics and devices such as CPAP machines and microwaves. An inverter fuse and cable kit is required to connect the inverter to the batteries. It is also recommended that an inverter remote is purchase along with the fuse and cable kit. The inverter remote will enable the inverter to be installed out of the way near the batteries. The remote provides an on/off switch and duplicated the control panel on the inverter.

GP-HS1500-12 High-surge pure sine wave inverter

Purchase the GP-HS1500-12 for smaller RVs that only require a 30 amp service.

The GP-HS1500-12 high surge inverter will provide AC mobile power to most small kitchen appliances, sensitive electronics and a variety of power tools. The GP-HS1500 has a surge rating up to 3000 watts, allowing for tools that require extra power at startup (such as compressor motors, small water pumps and some microwaves.) The GP-DC-KIT3 is required for installation. The GP-SWR-B-12 remote is recommended for all installations.

When ordering the GP-HS1500-12 High-Surge Pure Sine Wave Inverter, you will need the GP-DC-KIT3 for connecting the inverter to the batteries. Because the inverter must be located as close as possible to the batteries, it typically is installed in a location that is difficult to get to. Therefore, it is recommended that the GP-SWR-B-12 inverter remote also be purchased.

Installation for the GP-HS1500-12 inverter will cost between $300 to $500 depending on the difficulty in routing the heavy gauge cable from the inverter to the batteries. Batteries should be upgraded prior to installing an inverter. See Step 2: Upgrading Batteries

GP-IC-2000-12 2000 WATT INVERTER/100 AMP CHARGER/50 AMP TRANSFER SWITCH

Purchase the GP-IC-2000 Inverter Charger for large RVs that normally require a 50 amp service.

The GP-IC-2000 Inverter Charger is a breakthrough product where you get top features, quality, and performance at an economical price.  The inverter charger is a 3-in-1 system combining an inverter, battery charger and automatic transfer switch. This saves space and simplifies installation by reducing the number of devices and cables to install. The IC2000 provides two 50 amp legs. That means when connected to shore power 50 amp service (240V), you can draw up to 12,000 watts of power!  The IC2000 is also compatible with 30 amp service.

The GP-IC-2000 includes a battery temperature sensor on a 25' cable. One end mounts onto your battery and the other end plugs into the inverter charger. The temperature data is sent to the GP-IC-2000 which automatically adjusts voltage to maintain proper and healthy charging.
