There is one thing that seems to befuddle me -
electricity in all its forms. I am good at following directions however.
What I want to know how to do is get a 12 Volt battery
system into my Campster
without rewiring, adding wiring etc. The trailer has shore power with outlets and lights
. How can I install a 12 volt battery
? What do I need to install?
There is an electrical
box. Do I connect an inverter to the box between the battery
and the box? I have used an emergency power supply that has standard plugs in it in the past but it doesn't last long enough with my CPAP machine. I have to drive around in the car to recharge the battery. (no generator
, planning to go solar
, another issue). I am planning to get a dedicated battery pack for the CPAP so it won't impact the rest of the trailer.
Other than the CPAP the electrical
use will be mostly lights
, and fan over stove. Heat will be Olympic wave catalytic and am not interested in most electronics when I am camping except maybe an iPod w/speaker on occasion.
Any and all assistance would be appreciated.
