Inverter for older AS.
Our 94 Classic did not come equipped with an inverter. We have made do with a couple of small inverters for tv and my wife's CPAP machine. I've tried to come up with a way of adding inverter outlets, but they all seem to involve a lot of tear up to add additional circuits. It's kind of a pain converting everything back and forth whenever we boondock.
I had about given up when it occurred to me that there is a simple solution. I'm going to mount a 1500-2000 watt inverter under the sofa in the front, and run a very short extension cord (maybe 3 ft) out through the street side battery box, and keep it stowed in the box until needed.
For boondocking, turn the converter switch off, turn the inverter on, open the battery box, and plug the main power cord for the trailer into the extension cord, through a 15 or 20 amp adapter. This turns all the outlets into inverter outlets. You can't run the AC, but everything else should work. Microwave should be possible, intermittently.
This may be common practice, but I haven't come across this. Any flaws in this plan?
