how to install 2000w inverter in Class C

I am looking into adding a 2000w pure sine wave inverter. It will fit nicely under my sofa next to the step well where my Battleborn batteries are and located about 2' away. My transfer switch that came with the MH is located on the opposite side of the coach about 10' away. Has anyone done this kind of installation and how did you deal with the transfer switch? Can the inverter use the existing switch?

I see no one has post anything here. But in case someone does a search, I installed a Renogy 2000 watt inverter under my sofa which is close enough to allow me to use the double 4awg 3' cables that came with it. I put a 200amp Bussman resettable fuse in the battery compartment and ran a very short 2awg cable to the positive post. I was searching for ways to utilize the power and thought about running an extension cord around the back of the sofa to the cab and over to the dinette slide out and out the seal to the shoreline connection so that I will have power to all outlets. But that means that the fridge would have to be switched to gas from automatic as it drains 28 amps and the converter charger to off. I opted to just run an extension cord up to the cabinets over the sofa and over to the cabinet next to the microwave. There I can easily switch the microwave plug from shoreline to inverter and it's close enough where the DW can use her hairdryer and see her self in the vanity mirror. I have an additional outlet on the other side of the sofa where the Dish receiver and a sound bar for the TV are. Hope this helps soeone.
