Looking for inverter with bypass

The inverter for the tv in my MH plugs into an ac outlet so that when I am on shore power it bypasses so it doesn't have to run. It is only 150 watts and I would like to get a larger one but can't seem to find any that will bypass. Any ideas where to look or what it would be called?

What make/model 150 watt inverter do you now have that "plugs into an ac outlet" resulting in a bipass so it "doesn't have to run" when you have shore power?

Google inverter with transfer switch to find units with built in transfer switch or option. Else call and discuss your requirements with www.theinverterstore.com and they will make recommendations.

Inverters come in 2x2xmany types.

First two: MSW or TSW.. You want True Sine Wave (Also called Pure Sine Wave) epically for audio/video/television equipment.

In-line/stand alone... ANY in-line model will do what you ask,

Many = Wattage, 300,500,600,750,1000,2000,3000, bigger, smaller, in between

300-600 TV and related electronics in the entainerment bay, plus a laptop or two

1000, basically more electronics

1500 add the microwave and possibly GFCI chain

2000 Delete possibly from above sentence

More.. Add more stuff.

Long about 3000-3500 you can add an air conditioner but warning,,, The bigger the load the faster the batteries die, your basic air conditioner will suck a pair of GC2's dry in less time than I took typing this response.... and I type fast.
