Installing surge protection in 25rr

I'm assuming that I will need to slide out my inverter for this mod? Anyone have experience and could talk me thru removal of the panel system?

Two screws remove the cover 4 more screws remove housing.

You have a converter not an inverter.

I know this is a duh,kinda thing,but not only,make sure to un plug shore power,but I would also disconnect Dc power,juz n case. When I was in mine to install PI 30,it had about 6-8" of ahh...wire length to pull out,with multiple zip ties,screwed to floor n wall,holding wires. Sure you will not have any probs.just a heads up !

So you put male and female twist loc plugs so you can take the unit out for service or move to a new camper, obviously opposing sexes to plug back as factory!! I'm going to order my PI tonight and just go for it!!
