If the load exceeds the capacity of the AC sources (genny or shore suppply) it uses the batteries/inverter to boost the available ampage, preventing blown fuses/tripped circuit breakers.

This also means that rather than needing say an 8Kva generator to allow for the startup surge when something powers on you can have a 4kVa combi-inverter and a 4Kva generator, with obvious benefits from buying a smaller genny to start with reduced fuel usage and noise.

I know of the Mastervolt range with this (https://www.mastervolt.com/products/...500-100-120-v/ 120v although without the solar controller) and the victron range (https://www.victronenergy.com/invert...argers/quattro 120v available), I'm sure there are others.

Interesting feature. Still sounds like alot of complexity (aka alot to go wrong), but to each his own .

the hybrid that inverter uses partial energy from battery to add to the shore power has been available for years, check out magnum msh3012m. what op wanted to combine the solar controller and inverter is unavail, but why need one?

So a charge controller/converter combo is what I'm hoping to find. Am I crazy for thinking such a module exists? My coach is pre-wired for solar and they go to the same bay as my converter - so if such a thing exists I would be thrilled to hear any recommendations you care to share.

Thanks for reading
No such animal exists. When you add solar install the proper charge controller and your done. You coach should have an inverter / converter already installed. That's what charges the batteries from shore or generator power and operates all the 12 volt coach stuff.
