the wiring is a 4 gauge to the battery, nuting great to see there lol



there is no gauge for it, no need for a fuse because it has its own protection circut, it will cut out if anything is abnormal.



its an "x-power" inverter, bought it at price club a few yrs ago, not a high priced unit, but good enough for everthing i need to run on it



yes its 1000 watt cont. i belive 1200 surge

Always use a fuse or breaker!!!

Fuses/breakers are to protect the wiring from short ciurcuit and/or burning not the appliance..........<img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/018.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt003' />

I recommend a proper size fuse/breaker at the positive connection source

for any and all electrical devices.

If your Titan had a short/fire from this additional unfused/protected accessory and the failure resulted in the loss of your Titan the insurance company might not go for the no fuse/breaker on the device logic.........

might be worth calling them on it! <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/014.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt014' /> <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/003.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt006' />

Each accessory needs its own protection device...or the breaker won't trip in time to prevent a short to the smaller devices. A main breaker and a sub-panel with individual protected circuits would be best.

I know marine stores in your area carry that type of equipment. just my 2¢! I have thought of doing that myself.

Are you planning on using a "dual-isolated-output" regulator with a manual or automatic battery combiner switch? <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/017.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt003' /> <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/003.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt006' />
