So I have looked for a bit for larger than 10awg marine wire for running from the shore power outlet to the panel. All I can seem to find that is tinned is 10awg. I'd like to get at least 8,but 6 is...

Got it, yea I was looking at the 60a ProSafe. That should be plenty as I really don't have anything that draws 50a,but that's what the boat comes with. Eventually an ac unit will go in the boat, so...

Re: Questions with my DC purchasing

One 50a, which I believe is only a 120vac.

Re: Questions with my DC purchasing

I didn't look up Charles, but regardless those are just as heavy as getting two Victron units. (the Victron on has up to 30a, that's why I said two). The 50a/120v is 155 lbs, and the 50a/240v is...

Re: Questions with my DC purchasing

I understand it's a system approach which is why I don't want to buy something and it not be compatible down the road with LFP. I'll check out the Victron unit. Though I may get a small Sterling so I...
