In Reply to: FEC 100 inverter posted by Muzzy on April 19, 2011 at 12:52:53:
The major current draw for the FEC100 is during the initial 5 minutes when the ignitor is on. I have disconnected mine and just us a small propane tourch to start some pellets. With that in mind, a 750 watt inverter will carry the load with a marine/rv deep cycle properly charged. The best types are 3 stage charger/inverter.
I use a 2500 watt auto switch inverter/charger with two deep cycles and run my full trailer, lights and a small refrigerator included, with a traeger and an FEC for a full contest with no issues. If I want to run my AC, I then need AC power source which is normally availabe at most contests.
I never run my FEC off of shore power or a generator (don't trust them), always off of the inverter battery system. Never have had an issue.
