Is this the inverter you purchased

Will what you purchased max the converter-charger's charging rate?

Hope it works good for you, changing to 120v seems like a good option.

It should, assuming its max is 50A using the boost wizard button.

Here is the inverter I ordered.

I liked the remote switch and the battery terminals seem more secure... Also had some favorable brand reviews on youtube.

Did you just tighten the screws back up against your J channel conduit? Are you concerned it will get wet inside while driving in wet weather?

I'm in the middle of the same project and stumped at a clean way to bring the wire out "weathertight". I have my fiberglass fish rod already thru the gap to the battery locker.
