dual inverters ac side connections

Recommended Posts

I have been searching for what I thought would be a simple thing. I will be bringing in shore power, 4 #6, branching off to two 240 volt inverters. then out of those inverters to power panel in Teton. I don't see a twist on connector working on #6. So terminal stip or studs. Not finding a simpe solution to this. Best I see is individual studs for each circuit. Three wires on each stud. And that ends up 6 studs, usng common ground and neutral. Can the bussbars work with copper bar removed? That would isolate each circuit and lessen the cluter. Thought some of you might have a better solution. This does make and E Panel tempting. Neat. But That extra $600.00. It has all the connections in it plus inverter bypass which I really don't need.

Polaris connectors? (still needs to be in a box)

Snap together some Ilsco PDC blocks in a box?

I'm far from an NEC expert, but those are a couple things to noodle over.  But if a UL panel is already made, it's kinda worth it fer big power stuff.

Just looked at that on Home Depot. $25 each for 3 port. Not bad. Didn't know about them. My neutral and ground can be exsposed.

Glenn, you probably already know this but just FYI, in an RV main distribution panel, UNLIKE YOUR TYPICAL HOUSE PANEL, the Neutral Buss and Ground Buss are electrically separate insulated and isolated from each other. Its configured as a "Sub Panel"   IE Do NOT re bond any Neutrals and Grounds or consider or make them common,  the single point NG Bonds is ALREADY made at the RV Pedestal or its prior distribution. Your Inverter should have separate inputs for Neutral and Ground....

I know. Looking at the E panels and Magnum panels, they both use common neutral and a common ground. They are separate but inverter feed and out shares  a common connection.

Guys I decided to go with the Midnite E Panel. Done some measuring yesterday and it fits nicely with 1 inverter on door. It's made to go on door. It has all the terminals for connections, bypass switches, 30 amp inverter breakers, bypass system.
