I have Kodiak 1100W bought in 2019 as an emergency backup for the house.

I have a 12V 200ah lead acid battery connected to the Kodiak.

I live in Southern California where we get frequent rolling blackouts during the summer months.

Here is my question to the collective mind.

Is it possible to connect an automatic transfer switch to the Kodiak so how?

I have a refrigerator in the garage, and I thought I could run it off the Kodiak full time but wanted the assurance that if the battery drained the refrigerator could switch to grid power.

Thank you in advance

Will Prowse has a video on a Solar Automatic Transfer Switch. Made just for what you’re referring to.

Those terms entered in amazon will turn up a MOES brand.

One more battery might be a better option. Not every 200Ah lead acid is 200Ah. Might be crowding it depending on the fridge. What is the battery?

Thank you for the feedback....I did get a second battery, and I did watch the video from Will Prowse.

The in/out set up is different since the battery for the Kodiak is internal, and the only out ports are the plugs....I still going to look and tinker.
