Aims True Sinewave inverter

Aims offers a true sinewave unit that produces 1200 Watts and includes a required transfer switch. There are forum articles on this already. Each coach will have it's own place to mount the unit. It's wired into the 12V coach battery and the 120VAC panel, using one of the breakers for it's placement in the AC system.

My question, why not run the generator while traveling down the road? That would take care of all your needs.

If you have a generator run it and the AC unit while driving. More fuel efficient than using the truck AC.

I assume you might be talking about this one...
https://www.amazon.com/Power-Inverte...+watt+inverter

pretty slick, but
Reading the questions, it looks like you'd have to reset this to "on" any time it looses power, so not ideal if installing hidden someplace.

I've wanted one for a while, but only so I can run my keurig in the early morning without running the genny. It just hasn't been a high enough priority yet....

On my rig: they call it an "entertainment inverter". It powers the TVs...
So I figure that it's simple to just unplug one of them, and use that receptacle for my "mobile 110" needs.

They also sell a remote switch that can be placed anywhere in the RV because it has a 25' cord (4 wire telephone cable).
