2400W Power Inverter

I’m in houston without power and I used mine last night to plug in my fridge, tv, and internet. Today I bought a little window unit and only have it plugged into the LC and have the other things plugged into my husbands truck. It’s barely used any gas. Maybe 1/8 of a tank overnight.
So help me understand. Did you plug an extension cord into the LC, then plug that into a power strip, then plug in the fridge, tv, and internet into the power strip?

I’m sorry you’re still without power (my family is also down there running generators right now), great to hear the truck is keeping up!! Thanks for the report and stay safe!

I put an interlock on my panel and an inlet box on the wall - which I can power with a 20ft 30amp cord from the generator or the LC. I’m able to power everything in the house except the AC and the oven with a 2300watt Ryobi. Hoping for the same capability with the LC when it gets here.

Awesome. I have no idea how any of that works but I will send to my electrician. Thanks!

I was playing around with this to test running some AC powered items and there’s a couple questions that I have. I have not figured out how to turn off the AC climate control system or the head unit. I’m trying to make things efficient so I don’t have too much draw on the inverter and haven’t figured out how to turn these items off. What did you do this?
 
I was running the shopvac on mine last weekend and noticed the LC engine started and stopped several times while cleaning our cars. It was hard to tell how many times, as the shopvac was pretty loud.

There’s an off button by the climate control switches and then you have to hit rear and hit off again for the back of the car. I left my windows cracked so it doesn’t get too warm inside and turned of the interior lights.
