I also have a 28Z

I added a 12V outlet (double outlet w/ USB charger next to the propane detector under the table. Wired into the same circuit. I run a plug in inverter to power the TV and DVD when hauling the little ones.

I just drove up the 6% 8 mile long Sherwin grade north of Bishop. It was 107 and shortly turned to 109. I turned the chassis AC off but forgot to turn the generator and coac AC on. Up at the summit it was 95 at 8,000’. I shifted by hand to avoid high rpms and even towing the CRV the engine did not overheat. Lots of cars on the side overheated. Coming back up to Big Bear it was 111 and we had a 6 mile or so and up to 16% grade. We unhooked the CRV For this grade. Too many hairpins. No issues and many cars on the side of the road hoods up.

You might want to change those two twelve volt batteries out for four six volts. That will give you more capacity. Just make sure you wire them for 12 volt output.

I agree: assuming that there is space available for the extra batteries...

UPDATE
Hi All, I wanted to let you know all of your feedback really helped me pinpoint a great option. I decided to go with a 1500W DC to AC 110V 120V Inverter $53 on Amazon
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
We went on a short 90 min drive to a local camp site where I plugged the inverter into the lighter outlet, and then plugged in the LCD TV and XBOX. I kept an eye on the digital output and kept feeling the lighter plug and it got a little warm but not hot. The xbox played with no skipping or freezing and we had some bumpy roads. So all in all it was a home run. This model also comes with battery connector so if I dry camp and want more juice I just need to hook it to the RV battery.
