Freedom Elite 30FE Inverter Question
Is there a fairly easy way to wire in a DC/AC inverter into the 30FE back in the cabin area? Looking for a way to run a few small AC items while driving.

Thanks in advance.

You don't have one now? Are you looking to add a second one.

I didnt think it came with one that would power the 115v AC outlets when on DC power, only that it would charge the batteries when on shoreline....I'm brand new to this and may be missing something here...... 12-31-2017 09:51 PM

What you have is a converter that charges the batteries and supplies 12 volts when on shore power. Is there a easy way to install a invertor ........nope.
You'll have to run heavy wires (depending on the size of the unit) from the batteries. Then the unit needs a internal transfer switch to switch from shore, internal ac output. Then you have to splice it in the middle of the romex cable feeding the outlets.

Not sure what you want to power but you could purchase a small one that plugs into the power port (cigarette lighter socket)

Your 30fe has an inverter. It powers the TV's and if you have an outside kitchen, it powers the small refer as well. You would only use it on the road if not running the generator or stopped somewhere when no shore power is available. As stated above, your converter supplies charge to your house battery when on shore power or with the generator running.

Simple to remember Converter supplies 12v from 110v.
Inverter supplies 110v from 12v. Although limited. You only have a 1000 watt inverter.
