Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Inverters and TV sets

You are absolutely right about the bread machine. I just got one that uses only 500W so my small 12V inverter can handle it.
You are also right about using such a big inverter to run a TV, stereo, etc. We mostly use our Heart inverter a few minutes at a time to run the microwave, drill, vacuum or other high current appliances.
By the way I found the perfect replacement TV for the older Super M's. I bought the Magnavox model 15MF400T/37. It can also be used as a computer screen so it has an inverter that plugs into 110V but the TV actually runs on 12 V. I cut the inverter off and connected the TV direct to the 12V outlet in the cabinet to the right of the TV. And I have a beautiful 15 inch, lightweight, flat screen LCD TV and I can plug in a portable DVD player when I need it.
I'll call about ordering my new SM when I hit the lottery...
