RV With The Tanners Install a GoPower! IC-2000 In Their Bighorn

We installed a 2000 watt Go Power Inverter to go along with our 3 Trojan T-1275 batteries in our Bighorn, but after a while we felt the need for a more efficient converter. We also wanted to cut down all the extra wiring in the RV.

Go Power! IC-2000 was the answer! It's a 2000 watt pure sine wave inverter with a built-in converter/charger (100 amp) and built in transfer switch (Dual 50 amp). As an added bonus, it also comes with a battery temperature sensor and the remote display panel. Nice!?

The IC-2000-12 is capable of passing a full 50 amps of service to our Bighorn and there is NO need for a Sub-panel…how awesome is that!!

The IC-2000 has an interesting feature called "power share". In theory, this will allow us to combine the 2000 watts from the IC-2000 with our generator to start one of our air conditioners. Once the AC units have started, the power requirement drops significantly and will run on just the generator.
