THOR #20891
Magnitude/Omni RB34 Inverter

Can anyone tell me what the inverter powers on the RB34?

I know the Fridge (& outside one too?) and CPAP plug in bedroom. Anything else?
With only a 100w solar panel & 10 amp controller, I do worry about battery drain. (I guess the generator will get its hours )

THOR #12751
Magnitude/Omni RB34 Inverter

The Inverter on the SV34 powers:

- Residential Fridge
- Outdoor Fridge
- Outlet next to bed nearest bathroom
- TV in overhead bunk
- Outdoor TV
- Outlet for DVD Player

If you go to the Thor Ownerís Resource site, you can download the schematics.... plus all of the other documentation specific to your coach.

I added two additional batteries and two 160W solar panels. Iíve had no issues powering the fridges overnight and then making a pot of coffee in the morning.

Thanks for the info.

I can’t register at Thor owners site yet. I don’t have the VIN. My RB34 is still on factory order.

Yes, I had one 160w panel and a 30 amp controller on my previous motorhome without a inverter. Fridge was 2-way. So, I worry about batteries. Probably will add extras before supplementing solar.

You must have upgraded your controller too?

I did not upgrade the Controller and have had no issues. When you factor in that solar isn't 100% efficient, the panels are rarely in full sun at the proper angle for maximum power generation, etc., the stock 10A controller has been working fine.

If it eventually craps out, I will replace it with a 30A MPPT Controller but for now the stock controller is doing the job.
