Hi Tim, Thanks for the comment and yes I am working on getting a 30amp CC.(for now)
I'm not sure just yet which way I am going to wire my system. I have seen a handful of different configurations and I'm still unable to choose one that will work for my needs now and in the future. I hope to make some kind of decision here in the next couple of weeks. Take care........
I see you have a photo of the Tiger Claw 3000 mod sine wave inverter in your setup, I see it with the TC 1500 also in the photo. May I ask What appliances are on the Mod Sine wave end??
I have the TC 1500-2000 sine wave. But I found out today it will only handle 1200 watts in reality. I may have to take a gamble and run some items on mod-sine wave. Just checking to see if you are have any Issues.
Thank you for your time
