What's your inverter rated at, and are you supplying other loads when you run the microwave?

Well the ones we were getting were either 1500 or 1800 Watts. There's a plate on the back of your microwave that will give you the RMS average power required in watts. That's not the turn-on surge, and a klystron tube in a microwave has a pretty good draw at startup. Make sure everything else is off when you use it.

I'm going to hijack this post LOL

I have a Thermo King b100 with electric standby going to hook it to my trailer I want to run a generator it needs 80 amps DC according to ohm's law
That would be 8 amps AC

So what a 4000 Watt generator work since 8 amps AC is only 930 Watts AC ?

Where do you guys have your coolant line from Tripack hucked? Mine is installed under the fairing and they just connected to the bunk sleeper . I don’t think it’s the right way specially because I have the arctic package. Thx for all the help

My century was plumbed the same way. Parallel to the bunk.

Not sure what to say.

I had my coolant lines going to the bunk and each line had a tee that split it to the bunk and the Apu.

I had heat to both my engine and my bunk. I could start the APU in -10°F temps and within 2 hours could start the engine and it would be warm already.
