Anything wrong with this rewire of inverter / GFCI?

Our 2022 16 Caravel is wired such that the inverter supplies only the DVD player (since removed) and TV. The outlet in the galley, under the dinette and outside are shore power only.

How ridiculous, having to run an extension cord from the dinette overhead to make coffee in the galley or run a hair dryer.

I removed the GFCI wire from the AC breaker and spliced it into the inverter 120V output.
Only other circuit is for the microwave which is unmoved.

Now all the outlets work on shore or inverter. The PD1600 inverters has an AC passthrough
I suppose Airstream did it to have a GFCI circuit in the galley but really?

My guess is that they most likely did that because kitchen circuits are required to be 2,400 watts and the inverter is only 1,600 watts
