Hi we are thinking of changing cooker in our motorhome for an 1800w Air fryer I know we can run one on electric hook up But my Question is can it be run off grid. Our set up is 2 x100w Lithium batteries 2x 180w solar panels and a B2B charger with a 2000w inverter

Others will tell you but I've always thought you could halve the nominal output of inverters.

Just been on Renogy web site and it states 100A continues discharge rate per battery But I have also sent the question to Renogy support

1800w/12.5v=144amps required
Ninja 2470w/12.5v= 198amps required.
How are you going to get the power you take out of the batteries back in.

Plus 10% for inverter inefficency.
Run the engine with the B2B charger or is this not possible
Just don't do it stationary only while driving unless you like bit repair bills.

I have a Tower twin air fryer and it stands beside my smart meter display. I assume because of its small oven size and good insulation, it very quickly switches off the thermostat, therefore using full power only intermittently.
I am surprised at just how little time it is drawing power.

Apart from been inconsiderate to other motorhome people I don't think doing this stationary is on But for a matter of interest What would happen if anyone did run engine while stationary

Lots of posts on the site about why you should not run modern diesels on tick over, basically it seems to me that the advice is start them up and drive immediately to bring them up to temperature.
if you donā€™t you can get problems, with emission control systems etc.
Iā€˜m sure somebody more expert than me can provide a link if the search
option does not help.

Modern diesels never get up to operating temperature idling from cold, DPF CAT clog up can get glazing the bores, EGR problems.

Allowing for inverter inefficency your 1800 watt air fryer will draw approx 160 amps on full power.

It is not going the be running at full power all the time but I wouldn't do it.
The supplier is probably erring on the side of caution.

I plan on using something similar when I get the new van but I've decided to fit 460 ah of Lithium.

Thanks for that reply LennyHB I think I will stick with what we have already got as we managed quite well It was just another idea that won't work with my set up and not spending any more on that Good luck with the new van &your set up

Just for info..
You can get smaller wattage air fryers for the odd use.
We have one that's 1000w and runs off an 1100w inverter and 2x 90amp lead acid batteries.
Mainly use it when the grandson comes with us so he can have his fries and nuggets. :doh: :wink:

That's going to kill your batteries you shouldn't discharge leads at more than the C5 rate if you want them to last. For 2 x 90 that would be 36 amps with that load you are drawing approx 90 amps.

Why?
Are you talking about just the oven?
A traditional cooker is much more versatile.
An Air Fryer is portable so can be brought out when needed
Why not, we decided not to have an oven in the new van and will use an air fryer.

I see the logic in that, but if you already have an oven... :unsure:
Plus you're a magician electrickerywise and will ensure you have plenty of power
I agree if you already have an oven.
In our case we didn't like where and how the oven was fitted also Ā£1000 for it goes a long way towards the electrics.

Yes just the oven The one in our van is a complete wast of time and space and was looking for a different way of cooking The Duchess as now said we will buy an Air Fryer and use it when we are on electric hook up and try and fine something to replace the oven when we are off grid As anyone got any suggestions??
