Running Air on the pass through of an inverter?


I am going to replace my Xantrex XM1800 modified sign inverter and go to a 4000 Watt Pure Sign. When I do this I will rewire to run my entire coach off the inverter when I dry camp.

Now I don't need to run the air conditioner (without shore or gen power) but do want to have all plugins, coffee maker and microwave work without having to start my Gen.. I did add two more batteries and will add more in the near future, but right now I have about 300 amp hours. I'm not concerned about battery draw but don't want to cause problems with the inverter.

When I am on shore power or running my Gen the inverter will go into pass through mode,

If the inverter is in pass through mode does that effectively remove the inverter from load concerns, being able to run say the air, microwave, water heater (on Elec), Hot plate or what ever while on shore or gen power?

My question is will running the Air, and what ever else put the inverter in overload or cause other problems?
