The 55A for the converter is the maximum 12V DC output current (for charging the battery and powering 12V devices when there's 120V AC power available). The 30A shore power is a 30A 120V AC connection. 55A at 12V DC is 660W of power that the converter can, well, convert. The shore power connection is capable of supplying up to 3600W. More generally, for the same power, you need a proportionally greater current at lower voltages.

If you need to run the generator or be connected to shore power to have 120V AC electricity available, then you don't have an inverter working.


Thanks!

Yeah, I confirmed there is no inverter. We need to run the generator to power the outlets, microwave, ac, etc.

We'll check out solar options in the coming months.
