    No time to look at stuff until the weekend. What are the specs on those "suckers"?

      1500CCA
      Reseve Capacity: 465 minutes (which closely works out to be 248A/H)

      Fucking powerful they will be!

        One thing to keep in mind on the 240v side of things, is all switches in recreational vehicles need to be double pole, as opposed to residential stuff that is only requires single pole. I believe your circuit breakers also have to be double pole.

          250 Ah x 2 is plenty of battery
          Just remember that at 10 amps, they would take 60+ hours to charge from flat!!

            Update-

            Looking at getting a 120w solar panel, 1000w inverter and 2 200ah deep cycle batteries. Plan on running a bar fridge, some led lights and chargers for laptops, phones and iPads etc.

            Anyone see any issues with the above set up?

              check the inverters effeciency. at below their max they are sometime only 70% effecient, so then you only get maybe 100w out of solar at best, so enough so get a few batteries charged, but bar fridge might run them flat over time (fairly long time). maybe 3 power bar fridge so you can run it on gas every now and then?

              or plan on getting some more solar cells if needed.

              might be worth a seperate DC circuit for lights, and use car chargers for phones etc that way you can have inverter off, probably use 20w just in standby

                Do you want some 65Ah AGM batteries ?
                I have some cheapies if interested.

                  That will work. Not sure why you'd bother with a solar panel, I'd just buy a better inverter - specifically an inverter charger that switches loads automatically.

                  Solar is only worth it IMO if you put 600-800w of panels in and make them work to run the fridge during the day.

                      might be cheaper to get a little generator to top up the batteries during the day unless you go rip some more panels off houses

                        Gain access to a mobile phone site, and take the batteries heavy fuckers and should last ages
