    Last September when we were out we had several days in mid 90s. With converter off, WH and fridge on 12v/propane, I was running both ACs on 30 amp
    Our rig has been sitting still and empty for nearly 2 months so its been in float status most every day. Over this past week I was running 12v fan to help exhaust some heat but otherwise...

    I finally got around to adding the 120v power monitor. I put it between the transfer switch and the panel so I will always have current reading either from the generator or shore power. It's easy enough to install as it clips around the wire, no wire removal needed. I sleeved the inside of it with a small section of hose and secured it to the wire with zip ties to ensure it stays clipped on and doesn't chaff the wire. I fused the meter with a 3 amp atc fuse on 16 ga wire fed from the same lugs.

    It is very easy to exceed 30 amps during normal trailer use...
    This should really help with boondockiing and inverter use.

    I also swapped the 100amp battery monitor shunt for the 300amp Juntek VAT 1300.
    It worked very well wirelessly but I think the current is reading backwards in/out so I guess I flubbed the orientation...

    I will get install pix of that and screen operation when I re-do the wiring.
