Thanks RedneckExpress the 5ver is in storage will check the tv and the

where the landing gear is lots of air so I think battery's and inverter could go there.

You DO NOT under any circumstances want the inverter in the same compartment as the batteries, flooded lead acid batteries produce hydrogen gas as they charge, which is why they're in vented compartments.

Adding a potential spark source can be very deadly....

My inverter is in the same compartment as the coach batteries.
I believe that is how it came spec'd.

It is now my understanding if one has a sealed inverter and sealed marine batteries...all is fine.

Never heard of a "Sealed" inverter, given that they all have ventilation holes in them to allow for their air circulation fans to cool them when under load.
