Electric skillet running off batteries in camper

 We have our new 1500 watt inverter installed and have tried running our 1500 watt skillet off it.

Our power voltage before the test 13.1 volts


How full was the battery bank before the test 100%


How much power did it pull A LOT up to 124 amps


The Xantrex Xpower 1500 inverter  is now working correctly we had to bypass or breaker that was to small we will need to upgrade it to 120 - 150 amps. The power drain with a 1500 watt appliance is huge so we will only be able to use them on sunny days for know with at least 4 100 watt panels putting out full charge. We will most likely wait till we have 5 panel on the roof and 4 portables that would be easier on the batteries, this is just a project out of the way before we go fulltime.
