Install an inverter in a Travato

I have a 2015 Winnebago Travato and am planning to do some off the grid camping. I want to install a power inverter so I don't have to run the generator when other campers are nearby, especially early in the morning. (The Travato generator is known to be noisy). Has anyone done this, what brand and size did you buy, where did you put it if you did a permanent install? Any help or advise is appreciated.

You'll need to do an energy audit of your power requirements and the duration you expect.
Then you'll need to insure your batteries are up to that task. Then size your inverter appropriately.
Many RV'rs load-shift in this manner. Everyone has different requirement.
Many users will recommend Magnum Energy inverters for numerous reasons.
Your inverter needs to mounted as close to your battery bank as practical due to the cabling requirements.

Helpful reading:

Good luck.
