I think I've come up with a good way to accomplish that. I''m thinking about putting the inverter in the forward storage compartment, it's close to the batteries and protected from the weather. Then I was thinking of running the cable from the inverter to a waterproof box on the exterior with a female 30amp plug but I guess it doesn't need to be a 30 amp plug if I use the adapter I already own.

Then I can plug my 30amp trailer cable into that box. The trailer plug is already routed to the outside right? So either I'm plugged into my inverter, shore power, or generator my cable is always in the right place.

And, be very careful to protect the inverter power cord from sharp edges or moving parts along its path.

Best luck

Our class C RV has the 110 TV circuits on the same breaker in the distribution panel. I had an inverter installed with an auto transfer switch.

Basically the wire that went into the 110 breaker was connected to 1 side of the transfer switch. The other was connected to the inverter. The output side of the transfer switch was then connected to the 110 breaker. The shore power is primary so if I have the inverter on when I plug into shore power the transfer switch flips from the battery. This way I don't have to worry about turning off the converter. I have a 1000 watt xantrex inverter with a xantrex inline transfer switch adapter and button.

The inverter is installed close to the batteries.

This powers the TVs and a few other plugs. Mostly use the inverter while driving for the kids.

I did just that on my Class C.

Same inverter, same type transfer switch but no remote panel. I leave it on.
