Battery Banks for inverter
I have a 3000 w inverter with 2 batteries hooked up behind each side of the inverter in parallel. One set of cables to each bank. Should the last 2 batteries in line also be hooked together to form a loop? I am charging off of a 45 watt solar panel, but I still am not able to run the refrigerator in the RV

When attaching the 12 volt batteries to this NPower inverter they need to be in parallel, if the voltage from the battery drops below approximately 10.5 Volts the inverter will automatically shutdown.
It sounds to me that you may need more solar panels to charge the batteries at a faster rate, please see some of the solar panels we offer listed below...
Also, be sure to check the wattage requirements on the refrigerator and try running it by itself with no other appliances attached.

It is likely that the starting amps of the refrigerator exceeds the capacity of the inverter. If so, hooking up more batteries will not help.
