You need to be careful with trying to energize all the 120v plugs with an inverter. You could end up with a battery-killing loop where you're energizing the converter from the inverter which itself is supplied by the batteries, so you'd run down your battery if the inverter is on, even if it has no apparent load.
I think it's a better idea to have dedicated inverter receptacles.
