    First I want to [​IMG] Great place to get help [​IMG]
    I make sure every thing I use to start with is 120 V but your Question is about 12V so are you using a 12V car battery please explain as I can not see your set up or maybe put up a snap shot of what you are trying to do otherwise I am thinking you are trying to use a car battery to power every thing because you are off grid and that is grate as I was raised like that for some time and if this is the case you need a power converter and you might need more then one 12V to operate a 240V syste, remember if one is 240V all need's to be 240V or you need tow different power converters one 12V and a 240V [​IMG]

    Enjoy yourself and have fun [​IMG]
