    Hi can you be a little more specific, what are the input/output voltages, and what is the output going to power? lights? charge batteries? etc
    once those parameters are known it is easier to make some recommendations.

    'tis why we often tell people it is easier to buy the dream than make it yourself. somethings really do require hundreds of people and millions in R&D to make them do what we want for what we are willing to pay.

    That certainly would do the job but seems a little overkill, I wonder why if he's using standard fridges etc, he needs anything more than say spike/ noise suppression from the incoming line voltage. Over to you Scotty63

    If that's what is needed, I would think that buying a unit like this is probably the best answer as at least you have a proven design with a guarantee if it blows up! To home build one would be costly and no guarantee!

    Thanks for all your time. It's just a thought if it is to complicated I will just buy one. I wanted to at least see what was involved. I will look at all the links you sent when I get out of work thanks again

    I am an RVer and do a lot with batteries and charging systems. Could you be a little more specific on what you need and why. I see you were asked this question earlier, but "why" is my biggest interest. RV appliances are normally pretty robust. What are you trying to protect against, or fix?
