I have a 2006...

I have a 2006 Damon Tuscany 4074 with a 2000 watt modified sine inverter (I've been told). I have installed a residential refrigerator and two flat screen TVs. I would like to know if I can upgrade to a 3000 watt pure sine inverter so we can use the RV when we dry camp at dog shows typically on 30 amp circuits.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked all the fuses? Do you have a wiring diagram?

I have not had any problems with the RV and do not have a wiring diagram available.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '06 RV?

4074 Tuscany

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your RV yourself? What have you tried so far?

Nothing, I want to know if I can upgrade to a 3000 watt pure sine inverter. I will have a profession install.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No, thanks

Hi, I'm Robert. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Do you know how many batteries you have? When you run an inverter it takes the DC voltage and makes the AC power. Running a fridge would draw a good deal of amps and the inverter would require a large battery bank for the inverter.

No sure. I think 4 house batteries and 4 others.
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 4 years ago

OK...

That should be OK if you have 4 house batteries just keep in mind you will have to limit what you are using on inverter power. Normally an inverter is used to supply some but not all the of the power when you are dry camping, normally the roof AC units are not tied to the inverter circuit. Running a fridge and some outlets would be fine and a 3000 watt inverter would be OK to use to replace the 2000 watt inverter. The inverter will only last as long as the batteries hold up, once you get below 11 volts the inverter can shut down for protection.

Sorry I can not do a call at this time, I start taking calls after 6:00 am PST. I can call you at that time if you like.

IF you are satisfied with my efforts please feel free to select a STAR rating on the page.
