Remounting Inverter on RW 2280BHESP

I have searched, and found a few topics on removing the on board Water filter due to it's RIDICULOUS placement on top of the Inverter, (seriously, what was the thinking behind that?). my initial plan was to relocate it instead of removing all together as I have an inline filter that I will connect to the "city water" or fill my FWT with, however would like the added "security" of clean water. Also in this adventure I have purchased two 100ah Lion Lithium 1300's and my plan was to install them and the Solar charge controller in the same compartment as the inverter. The only way to do this is to relocate the water filter, and re mount the inverter but to do so I would need to mount the inverter vertically / horizontally on the wall of the inside of the compartment, instead of flat on the floor. Does anyone know if this is possible or if damage could occur by re- positioning it, logic dictates that they put it in that position for a reason, but with the placement of the water filter, logic flew right out the window.

Hello first time on the forum and Iím buying your exact model. My question is not related to your issue but wanted to ask what is your ball height with trailer level? Iím picking up mine tomorrow and driving 4-hrs to get it but the dealer has not given me the measurements from ground to top of ball. Thanks

I drive a 2010 FJ cruiser Trail Team, it's fully stock as far as suspension is concerned I pulled it a few times with a normal receiver until last week, I just got the MaxxHaul 8 position adjustable ball mount on AMZ and have it set up for rise and set to the next to last tallest, so the base of the hitch (without the ball included) is at 21" from ground, and it seems to sit pretty level.. It's actually hooked up right now and I'm about to go drop it at storage, Ill shoot a pic and email it to you if you want to pm me your info...

I spoke with the guys at Arterra (GREAT GUYS BTW) and they said as long as the fan had ample flow it can be mounted on it's side. Just in case anyone else decides to make modifications.. for sure, Do your own research, but Larry over at Aterra was Very knowledgeable and helpful!

Inverter mounting

I don't have an inverter in my Sunseeker but I helped a travel club buddy with his 5th wheel inverter issues. Whoever did his PDI didn't do him any favors, he didn't even know he had an inverter, where it was, etc.
Anywho - his is mounted horizontally on the "ceiling" of his compartment, out of the way of just about anything, with wiring and cables suitably routed.
Plenty of airflow, etc so no overheating issues.

Hope this helps.
