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.
