Hi Joe,

Welcome to the forum from another SW FL boater! I think you mean your looking for an inverter / charger?

Welcome aboard. You're in a great area for trawler cruising.
What ever you do, don't ask about anchors or guns on this forum. You'll start an argument that never ends.

On the subject of inverters and chargers, I'm partial to Newmar products. They aren't cheap but they are very reliable. They are made for commercial use. They just came out with a new series of inverter / chargers that look really good.

Welcome to the Trawler Forum Joe. We will hopefully be in your area in the next week or two (if this crazy weather ever quits!)

Climate change, Blue. It is not going to get any better. All that stuff you heard about Florida? Forget it. :-)

Pro Mariner, Newmar, Mastervolt all make good converter/chargers.
