"Something like this may be doable. Or just get a small solar panel and charge controller, just for the tractor battery. If you look around, you can buy 12 volt motion sensors and 12 volt flood lights and 12 volt screw-in bulbs all for LED use. Then…"

"Well after seeing everything. You must separate everything. So 2 circuits each Inverter. Which means separate grounding for both circuits. Each inverter must be Separated even  grounds. Because one is MSW and the other is PSW."

Wiring Question

This is the small panel I am using off my system. If I remember correctly it's called a 2 space, 4 circuit box. Pic #1The guy at the hardware store told me with one power source I would need to install a jumper wire to power all the circuits so I did as illustrated in pic #2.My thinking is I should be able to use both my inverters with this box. One to power the top 2 circuits and the other to power the bottom 2.I want to use my TC 1500 psw for the top 2 and my TC 3000 msw to power the bottom…See More

Hi Tim,   Thanks for the comment and yes I am working on getting a 30amp CC.(for now)

I'm not sure just yet which way I am going to wire my system. I have seen a handful of different configurations and I'm still unable to choose one that will work for my needs now and in the future. I hope to make some kind of decision here in the next couple of weeks. Take care........

Tim

I see you have a photo of the Tiger Claw 3000 mod sine wave inverter in your setup, I see it with the TC 1500 also in the photo. May I ask What appliances are on the Mod Sine wave end??

I have the TC 1500-2000 sine wave. But I found out today it will only handle 1200 watts in reality. I may have to take a gamble and run some items on mod-sine wave. Just checking to see if you are have any Issues.

Thank you for your time

Dave
