This looks like it is on the path to what I am wanting to do. The idea of plugging the cord into the inverter is a quick and simple install but every time I use the inverter I will need to hook up the cord and make sure I have heavy draws turned off.

What do you have going on? I can't tell for sure with the picture.

Thanks

This is how mounted mine in the front
..I had an outlet in the front br that was powered...or if I wanted back tv/outlets I would plug in shore cord and flip off all the breakers except the outlets... worked great, but only really used it once before I sold trailer... (inverter is for sale in classifieds)..

You hooked directly to the batteries and not onto the power bar controlled by the battery master switch for the trailer? There is a light to remind you to turn off?

Did you install an inline fuse between it and the battery or does the inverter have a breaker?
Yep, run of the mill 400w inverter.
Added my own battery disconnect switch. The inverter has its own lighted power switxh.
Inverter came with its own internal/removable fuse.

I went straight to the battery because it was a much simpler path, than going to the breaker/fuse panel.

I wired up a second battery on the tongue. .then ran those to a dual battery isolator switch...

The power went from there to an 80 amp fuse (mine is a 1000w inverter)..then to the inverter. You want that power cable as short as possible.

This particular inverter has a key fob so you can turn the inverter off/on remotely..
