Re: Power inverter to operate AC pump and Vacuum pump?
Posted to Tool & Equipment Forum on 6/15/2021

Depending on your HVAC unit you'll be drawing around 100 amps on 12V. That's a HUGE draw! I have a 2500W/5000W(peak) inverter in the RV, but it runs on a 3 battery bank and will draw them down fast with that load.

I'd get a 2000 or 2500W inverter generator. Login to read more.
