I haven't seen them in real life but I may consider these when the Siemens breaks down.

 Amy the inverter is a key part of your system so I would buy the BEST inverter YOUR budget can AFFORD it will pay dividends later!!

regards Peter

The inverter for the lights small loads could be a modified sine wave as opposed to pure sinewave this quaters the price!

I will run the 12v LEDs direct from the batts, so will the bathroom, kitchen and engine room fans.

I will have to run a small inverter for phone charging, Tv Radio, laptop etc so that needs to be a very stable pure sine.

Interesting what Billy says about his 3000w beast not being used much.
im sure with the inverted load being split between a large and small unit, the large one doesnt need to be as big as 3000w, but could problably get away with a 2500w instead, just for the occasional wash, vaccume and microwave, oh, and hair dryer although I dont even use that much, or indeed the iron these days.
