Looks do not make a connection good. Use a meter!!!

When you use a meter measure screw to screw not wire end to wire end. If you want some interesting numbers at times measure between the screw and wire end. ;-)

Thanks for all the help.

It looks like dpvindic was right. The positive connection was weak and once the inverter put a load on it the voltage dropped. Someone put a positive battery end on the cable (cut it and added it). Even though it was tight I noticed some of the exposed wire was turning green. I took the end off, sanded it down and put a new one on and that seems to have done the trick. I'm going to put a whole new cable on when we come off the road for awhile as I hate the added ends.

Where does the positive cable go from the battery? Does it go straight to the inverter or stop at a solenoid or other junction. It's hard to see where it goes.

Thanks again,

It "should" go to a big fuse first, then maybe directly to the inverter.

Best thing to do is actually remove the cable. Then you can tell if a longer ir shorter cable would route better.

Glad you solved it.
