Re: Considerations for Upgrading Electrical System

Re: Considerations for Upgrading Electrical System

Re: Considerations for Upgrading Electrical System

OK.

BTW, are most marine applications of inverters used under way for things like running the hot water heater, and AC appliances, (TVs, microwaves, etc.)?

Re: Configuring New System - Which Components?

Truth is there's no need to replace anything. (My first plan was to simply connect the ST60s to the Garmin 740, via an NMEA2000 network). However, I'm a geek, and I'd like to add some new toys...
