Portable Genny and Inverter Questions
Hi all, I know this subject has been beaten to death several times over (I read those threads). Just a couple of quick Qs. First, with the Honda 2000i, can I just plug it into my shoreline socket to charge the batteries? I have two banks, house and starting, each with two batteries. Sorry, but I don't have the battery capacity handy, I'll check next time I see the boat. I have a WM battery charger wired into the system which charges at 5 amps. When on shore power, the charger keeps both sets of batteries topped up.
If I use this set up, I know I still could use an inverter to power appliances. Any tips on size or brands of inverters? I think that is about all for now.
