Good deal...I think at one point we informally voted this the Best Thread of all time, at least here in the TH Forum. There have been countless people using this info to setup their inverter system. And Howie's got a million of 'em- that's how he got his official title.

Great post, I used this info to put an inverter in our rig. I am bumping this just to make it easy for new people to find. HarveyP

I am in the process of installing a solar system with an inverter in one line. I have looked at the wireing diagram shown and either I don't understand it or it is not correct. I have consulted with my brother who is a licensed electrician and he agrees with me. As the switch is wired it seems to me that when hooked up to shore power, with the switch set to run power from the inverter, the shore power would run into the inverter. Also, when hooked up to shore power, with the switch set to shore power, there would be a back feed from the breaker into the panel. This all dependeds on the switch being the same as mine - ie toggle is powered from center to outer(s). Using a Fluke meter, set for continuity, putting power to the center set of tabs will allow a power flow to either of the tabs on the end of the switch depending on where the toggle is. Anyone else see a problem?

This is from memory, so forgive me if not correct. The outside tabs of the toggle switchs are the ones hooked to power, inverter on one end, shore power on the other. The center tab then feeds the breaker in the electrical box. This lets you feed power from either shore or inverter power, without any chance of feeding both at once. I know the original idea does work because I followed the instructions and it works great in our motorhome. My only plan to improve it would be to replace the modified-sine wave inverter with a true-sine wave inverter someday. HarveyP

Harvey, I agree with you and that is just the way I have wired mine. However, the schematic laid out in this thread does not appear to me to be wired like that. What I think I see is the DPDT switch fed with shore power at the center. It I am reading this correctly, this will cause an overflow to the inverter when hooked to shore power. This will cause a fire.

Seems as though the pictures from the original posting instructions are no longer available on this thread. I am wanting to add this mod to my TH, does anyone have another link to these?
