Questions & Answers for NPower Portable Digital Inverter - 3000 Watts

Question

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.

This inverter doesn't store power. It converts 12 volt electricity(from a car battery, etc.) to 120 volt electricity. Click the links below to view jumpstarters/power packs that will jump start a vehicle battery.

This digital inverter can be mounted on its side. You must leave at least 2” (5cm) of clearance around the unit for airflow. Also, ensure that the ventilation openings are not obstructed.

This inverter is a modified sinewave type. This type of inverter will be sufficient for sump pumps and most motor powered equipment. A pure sinewave inverter is necessary for especially sensitive equipment; for example, computers, LCD and plasma tv's. Check with the manufacturer of your equipment/appliances if you're unsure of their compatibility with a modified sinewave inverter.

This inverter does have an internal fuse. You may add an inline fuse if you would like to, but it is not necessary. This unit requires 4 cables be run to the battery(2 red, 2 black) so you can use (1) 240 amp fuse of (2) 120 amp fuses.
