We recently got components for a small solar power system. The trailer is currently wired at 110V, and we have low power needs. We will run a 12V
pump and fan directly off the battery, but everything else (lights, basically) will stay 110V.
The inverter has two 15A outlets. The solar guy suggested that we simply plug the shore power cord into one of them to power the 110V lighting circuits when we're boondocking.
Makes sense to me, but when I was looking at all this in the trailer, I realized that the wiring for the two 15A lighting circuits ends at the front of the trailer near the planned location of the inverter. The shore power inlet and breaker box are in the back.
My question: When not hooked up to shore power, can I plug the ends of the lighting circuit into the inverter instead of using the shore power cord? Will this effect the function of the circuit breakers with the power inlet bass ackwards? Is this idea safe or insane?
