My favourite microwave story.
An acquittance was equipping his boat for a figure 8 through the Pacific. He installed a microwave with big inverter which would also run his girl friend's hair dryer. When I asked him about the microwave, he indicated that he needed to defrost the the food from his freezer. I told him that I understood and that I used my microwave at home for the same thing. I put frozen meat in the microwave in the morning and when I got home from work the meat was defrosted, and the cat did not get it. Note - I did not turn it on.
1000 watts at 12v - way too many amps. Lots of the boats I teach on have, seldom use them.
