    Hi , thinking of fitting an inverter to our motorhome but not sure what to fit !!
    Seen "pure sine wave" and "soft start" advertised both have a remote start switch (cable with on/off)
    Any advise re benefits of either would be much appreciated.

    BTW we have a 140 solar panel and 2 120 amp batteries fitted

    Thank you in advance

    Pure will be needed if you are wanting to use things with an electronic control like most hair straighteners. I started off with one for the wifes straighteners but then it became the hairdryer too so decided to go the whole hog and fitted a 2000w unit with a remote switch from Sunshine Solar and wired it with Andy Techno's changeover relay to power the sockets.
    For using a few minutes each day it does not kill the batteries but I do have 400ah total to use.
