Re: Simple AC system
Sometimes buying your electric wire, boxes and switches from an Air Conditioning Supplier can save you a bit of cash and still get you the same wet location components. Our boat mechanic is also a certified air conditioning tech and he saves us quite a bit on wire by doing this.
Do the Isolation Transformers also provide Brownout/Low Voltage Protection? I have found when plugging into outlets at RV Parks and other venues that low voltage (under 116 volts AC) is also quite a problem that causes all sorts of electrical system failures such as overheated contacts/breakers, blown starter capacitors, burned motor windings, hot receptacles/plugs, etc. Since I started using an AutoFormer to protect against this in my RV I have not had an electrical component fail in almost 10 years while before I was replacing start capacitors and such in less than a year.
