Monitor amps usage

Discuss all the high power systems on board your RV. These are likely to be 115 volts ac or 230 volts ac systems, but also include 12 volt dc circuits for lighting and other control voltage systems.

Monitor amps usage

Postby des » Sat Jul 18, 2015 8:34 am

I have just fitted an Owl Micro+ electricity monitor which I bought second hand on ebay for about £15. The sensor fitted neatly inside the consumer unit and the transmitter outside. No problem sending from the back of the coach to the display up front. I first set the displat to KW, as there is no amp setting. But then set the voltage to 100v so that multiplying the readout by 10 gives actual amps drawn. Can set an alarm to warn if going over the site tripout.
