You also mentioned he could get rid of the existing charger (converter) which will become redundant, and obsolete once he upgrades to lithium batteries in the future.

2.5k PS. I was going to go with the 3k but when I went to order it, there was no longer any reference to it - at all.

Like some other Aims Inverters, specifications show it will power up to 3 times rated capacity for 20 seconds. That’s up to 7,500 Watts for very short periods.

If you plan on using that “surge” capacity even for a couple of seconds, make sure battery bank capacity and cables to inverter can handle really high current (like close to 1,000 Amps) for a few seconds without too much voltage drop, otherwise inverter will trip out due to low voltage.

Good luck with whatever design you pursue.

Thanks Chance and thanks for the advice. Let's hope I never go there

Happy New Year.

I would think you would want to keep that in front of the Inverter/charger. Then if you are running off shore power it will just flow thru. Plus if you remove that transfer switch and have a generator, you will have no way to switch that into service. So you would still need it for the generator. And you would want the generator output to go to the input of the Inverter/Charger. It will not care if the AC power is coming from shore power or the generator. AC is AC to the inverter/charger.
I think we're on the same page. Yes, xfr switch would remain in line. Converter/charger would be bypassed (or possibly removed altogether). I really don't want to mess with a breaker every time and it's under the bed, which is a PITA to get to if the slide is in. The mattress butts right up against the wardrobe with the slide in.
