Off grid solar powered washing machine and dryer.
My setup is as follows: 100 watt solar panel charging a 115 amp/hour Deep Cycle 12 volt battery driving an 8000 watt inverter (16000 watt peak) with modified sine wave output. I only need power for the 110 VAC motor for either washing machine or the gas dryer (neither runs at the same time as the other). The washing machine runs perfectly, but the dryer motor's starting surge shut the inverter off. I haven't check it yet, but I don't think the dryer motor HP is greater than the wash machine. My initial thought is to replace the dryer motor with one that will work like the washing machine motor. Can anyone suggest a remedy for this problem?
P.S. I just enrolled in this forum, so I don't know what a tag is. Someone please tell me.
