I'd happily, take advice from you, once you all say the same thing, I posted the link to the inverter, but you only saw it as a 1100 when it's clearly a 1100/2200 surge, is it my fault that some don't read and others give conflicting advice, and also ask questions I haven't a clue how to answer, is it any wonder I don't know who's advice to take.
Bob today asked clear concise questions, which I answered to the best of my ability, he now has another and again I'll give any information I have.
I wasn't sure exactly how many amps it would pull as I've not seen it as a figure which makes sense to me, IE Fatalhud said "2.2kw was going to pull around 180amp" is that per minute, hour or what, there is no point in giving half the information is there, it's not as if I'm standing up and saying I know it all, if you give info to someone give it all, not half of it, if it's going to use 180amps in an hour at 2200watts so what, that's a surge of 2200watts, I'm not going to at that for an hour, only a few seconds.
The boffins in the know I mentioned in the crimper post, were the people who are supplying the inverter, who it turns out had asked the manufacturers, who's credentials, I did not question, would you?
As for Clive comments, if your info was so good, why didn't you say so in reply to the two very polite PM's I've sent to you over the last few days, no you though,t he doesn't know what he's talking about I'll ignore him, which is fine, but don't come on here playing clever, as it's not very impressive.
If you want to help someone, then take a look at the way Bob is trying to help me, he asked specific questions, and got as near specific answers as I could give, not difficult to do, it just takes a little patience and understanding, but if you just want to be clever, well that's really hard isn't it.
I've learned a lot from some of you on here, and I've been grateful for the chance to pass some of it on to other newbies, in my view that's what this site is about, and we have a laugh of course, but I don't take the mickey out of people just because they are ignorant of some of the finer points of a topic, I might sometimes take a friendly poke at someone, who says something daft, as we all do sometimes, but only in fun, and it's usually obvious, and I have had the odd member make some comical comment when I've screwed up.
But today, a few of you have taken it upon yourselves to try and ridicule me, for what, just because I maybe being a bit over cautious about something which could be potentially life threatening, or at least setting fire to my motorhome, by making sure that I got the right information well shame on you, I hope it made you feel good, because it certainly made me see that some people are just not worth a light.
To answer your question Bob, no I didn't know it drew 83amps, the figure which was previously given was 180amps for 2200watts, so assumed it would be half at 90 amps, this is what I meant about conflicting figures, not a huge numerical difference true, but electrically it seem a lot at 7amps, incidentally, could you tell me just what 83amps actually means in real terms, as it doesn't mean a great deal at the moments.
Thanks again Bob.
