You will want to use two positive and two negative 4 gauge cables with the ring terminal ends (Pass a bolt through them to secure them tightly). These are available at CTC stores in the automotive section. Connect both positive cables to positive of battery #1. Connect both negative cables to negative of battery #1. Do not use a chassis ground. You can add more batteries to give longer run time by connecting them to battery #1 in parallel (for a 12Volt system).

Use no thinner than 4 gauge wire for positive, preferred 2 gauge or thicker. Make sure it's fused at the battery.
Use 4 gauge or thicker (2 gauge preffered# negative wire. Make sure it's grounded to CHASSIS.
NEVER rung long runs of negative wire from inverter back to the battery. This restricts current flow!
All your devices/systems, including premium sound system in every vehicle is always grounded to the chassis.
This reduced unnecessary electrical noise, and also makes sure maximum current transfer.
Current flows from Negative to Positive, not the other way around. #Positive attracts, Negative repells#
This is why short runs of ground wire, attached to solid part of the chassis, will allow the best electron delivery (current).
Try to keep negative wire under 24 inches.

Yes. The 3000 watt unit can be attached to this vehicle. The vehicle can be running while it is operation. If the vehicle is running and a low voltage or over voltage alarm comes up, the alternator voltage regulator will need to be adjusted (Very rare). You will want to use two positive and two negative 4 gauge cables with the ring terminal ends (Pass a bolt through them to secure them tightly). These are available at Canadian Tire stores in the automotive section. Connect both positive cables to positive of battery #1. Connect both negative cables to negative of battery #1. Do not use a chassis ground.

This product has no internal battery - there is nothing to fully charge. It is a power inverter which converts DC power (from your external battery) to AC power.

This inverter has more than enough capacity to run a CPAP machine (when connected to your battery) but it is not certified for use with medical equipment.

The Run Watts and Surge Watts of the sump pump are needed to answer this question. If the sump pumps Runs at less than 3,000 Watts and Surges to less than 6,000 Watts, then the inverter will power it. To find the Run and Surge Wattage of your sump pump call the manufacturer directly, give them the sump pump model number and ask for the Run and Surge Watt rating of that pump.

I used this on my sump, and it worked if it was properly connected to a battery with 4-guage cables. Display showed about 500 watts being consumed, so that should last over an hour of constant use on a decent deep-cycle battery.

When I first tried it using only 8-guage cables, I got a LUP error and the sump wouldn't work right. So make sure to use proper cables to connect it to the battery.

Inverters make no noise, with small loads on them but when more load is put on them, a small internal fan will start up to cool down the inverter. this fan can be heard when it is running but i would say that it is not all that loud.

There is no battery in an inverter. The inverter should be hooked up between a battery or DC source and your appliances in order to convert the DC power to AC household power. The length of time that the battery will remain charged will depend on the size of battery you purchase.
