You can always use a microwave on shore power or Onan generator which for most of my Class B life back to 2005 was normal use when most Class Bs had one lead-acid battery of a little over 100ah but had a microwave.
It appears that Thor is offering as standard 2 lithium 100 amp batteries with a 3000 watt inverter. Anyone know why 3000 watts, seems like...............
I assume that the Microwave uses 'some' of the 3000 watts.
I listened to a Coachmen Beyond with the ac running powered by about a 260 watt agm battery. I suppose one could have added some more agm watt hours.
