Inverter.

Can I keep my inverter turned on while I'm plugged into shore power? I want to be able to keep my residential fridge working if I have a loss of power. I have a Forest River Sandpiper with a 1000 watt inverter.

Yes.. In fact my inverter (A prosine 2.0) if fully "Enabled" works just like a UPS.. If shore power is lost, and it has been many times. TV's and Computers do not even blink,,,, IN fact... I have a fan that is plugged in directly to the park.. Does not connect to any RV system.. This is to alert me when power returns but the fan runs all the time....

That has, on occasion been the only way I had of knowing power had failed.

Agree, no harm in leaving it on. I turn mine off only for storage.

Thank you. My friend asked me and I really didn't know. Told him he did need to put his camper on a surge protector to protect it if he left it turned on
