How many amps.?
How do I deterrmine how many amps. I am drawing?
We recently installed (3) group 27's of 90amp. each: wired in parrallel for a total of 270amp. This is our house bank wich replaced a 4C. The 4c did not seem to have enough amps. for our needs.
We run systems of Auto pilot, running lights, cabin lights, navigation instruments, Vhf radio, stereo radio, TV, DVD Player......... etc.
All are not on at the same time but occassionally are.
I think the biggest power hog is the Auto pilot.
We learned real fast that it is not resoanble to expect the batteries to run the 12v Refrigerator. It simply draws too much. (When cruising we use ice)
So the question is, how do I determine how much I am drawing at any given time?
