Why did you go with 2 inverters instead of one larger one?
For 3 primary reasons:
So we could have both 120 V and 240 V power from the lithium batteries
Redundancy in case one unit failed
To double the charging capacity, since lithium batteries can be charged at a high rate

What is the occasional buzzing sound you hear in the Pilothouse sometimes?

What type of water heater do you have and is it plumbed to heat off an engine when running?
We have a 30 gallon Torrid Yacht Series water heater. It works great. It is plumbed so the heat from the port engine cycles through a heat exchanger in the water heater and heats the water. It also heats with 240 Volt electricity.
