Why is it a good idea to have a good water separator on your boat when you don't need one on your car??

Because Uber does not yet offer on the water service.

Again for what I do a 2" thru hull is something I would use with a 200 gallon tank. It would run a 120vac pool pump no problem.

For what the OP is looking at even an 1 1/2" thru hull is overkill.

Those fuses are there to protect the wire. Make sure you size your wire so an 80 amp breaker will protect it. Assuming the run is not very long that would be around a 6 gauge wire.

If you can live with running the A/C only while underway then that lowers the cost/weight of an inverter system.
