What bike rack can you recommend for my Tiguan? I have two road bikes Tommaso they're quite big.
General Q & A / Re: generator/inverter

You will need to determine the starting watts required by your AC unit. This information can also be found on the label or in the user manual. Most air conditioners require 2 to 3 times their rated power consumption to start up, so in the example above, the starting watts could be between 3,000 and 4,500 watts.

Once you have these numbers, you can choose a generator or inverter that can provide enough power to run your air conditioner. A generator with a rated output of at least 3,000 to 4,500 watts and a starting output of at least 4,000 to 6,000 watts should be sufficient. Alternatively, you could use an inverter that can handle the starting watts of your AC unit, such as a 3,000-watt inverter e.g.Firman W03083. Keep in mind that the inverter must be connected to a battery or other power source, such as a solar panel, to work properly.
Check the fuse: Make sure the 15 amp fuse you mentioned is the correct type for the circuit you want to use it on. If the fuse is not the correct type, it may blow immediately when you install it, or it may not provide the correct level of protection for the circuit.

Check the wiring: Make sure the wiring to the duplex outlets is connected properly and that there are no loose or frayed wires.

Test the converter: Make sure the converter is functioning properly and supplying the correct voltage to the circuit.
The idea got up and did not go further?
You can try contacting the manufacturer, Quicksilver 8.1, to see if they have the replacement parts available. They may be able to direct you to a local dealer or supplier that carries the parts you need. If you're unable to reach the manufacturer, you can also try searching for RV dealers or suppliers in your area that carry replacement parts for campers. They may have the part you need or be able to order it for you. Additionally, you can try searching online for RV parts retailers that specialize in replacement parts for campers. They may have a wider selection of parts and be able to help you find the specific part you need.
