Pure Sine Wave vs Modified Sine & Refrigerators

Recommended Posts

OK, the Whirlpool is installed, used for 10 days plugged in and 5 days at Quartzsite boondocking.

Ther refer uses 80 aH per day, average, when dry camping we use about 100 aH total per day. In January sun my 500 watts of solar has the batteries at 100% state of charge by 3 pm.  Yes, on cloudy days will have to run the generator.

Freezer stays at 3*, refer at 37*, 40% more capacity in same space, works on 1500 watt MSW inverter, cost for solar and refer $1800.  New Nocold about $2300.

Not a system, a 250 watt Canadian Solar panel 2 years ago, with a  Vitron mppt 100/30 controller and a Vitron 700 battery monitor.

Last month added a Centro Solar 260 watt panel, no Canadian locally, when I installed the refer, close match.

I have room to add a 3rd panel, 29' long coach, but we are not hard core boondockers.  Also have 4 golf cart batteries.

Will see how we do this year.
