I'm not sure which inverter I will be getting, still looking and open to suggestions. Looking at the AIMS Power PICOGLF40W12V240VS 4000W 120/240V AC Pure Sine Split Phase Inverter Charger. seems to have good reviews and with the 240 volts it would duplicate the 240v 50 amp shore power? Not to sure on that, but it seems that the bigger the better.

Is there some advantage to having the 240 side of it? the one that only does 120 volts is cheaper, however I don't want cheap out on things like this but don't want to waste either!
