Inverter for hot water tank
OK - I am asking this because I do not know. This is not a stupid question - teach me something.
I have an Irwin Citation 34 with a 2QM20 raw water cooled Yanmar and attached is an engine warmed hot water tank. The tank is also wired to shore power 120 V AC.
What would be the problem of using an inverter to make 120V AC while motoring to heat the tank water up?
Not all the time - just before we want showers.
