Installing Power Converter Help

6 posts in this topic

Lost the instructions for my Inteli-Power power converter and the technical support folks wont be in until monday so I figured I would ask my questions here. I have the 45 amp unit 9200 series and I believe I can use it with two batteries. Do I just run a positive and negative wire off both batteries and put the negatives and positive wires in to the corresponding terminals and tighten them down? Do I need to put some sort of cap on the wires going into the terminal or just the bare wire. Any requirement on guage of wire? I think thats all for now!

Thanks

You need to connect your batteries in parallel:

And connect your inverter at the "to 12V Accesory" location. I would keep your wire size the same size as the wires provided with the inverter, otherwise 8 or 10 gauge

Im assuming this converts 120 to 12 I would have 120 coming in to a oulet plug in your converter then crimp round spade clips to probably 10 gauge wire ran threw out your fish house. Now some converters have a gfi interupter built in and if your cord powering the converter is gfi protected already it might trip the gfi powering the inverter had that happen to me last year from a s_ms converter bought a cheaper one and worked fine.
