Re: Inverter for hot water tank
If you already have an engine coolant loop you will find the water is heated better that way then running the engine to keep the batteries up to support an inverter to heat water.
If you are going to do an upgrade at all I would add a heat exchanger and shift to fresh water cooling of the engine. This will prolong the life of your engine block and head and also increase the temperature of the water in your water heater.
