The Whistler Pro-3000W is a "Modified Sine Wave" inverter, so the only warning there is some sensitive gear will not be happy on that type of power.

I did my homework before adding the inverter to my RV and things I found worth mention:
*Bigger is not always better - The HIGH Wattage inverters will "use" a higher percentage of power at lower loads than the smaller inverters...I think of it like a "tax" on the battery's for running the inverter.
*Keep the 12VDC cables as short as possible - It's much better to use longer 110VAC wiring when selecting a mount location.
*Cooling is paramount - Pick a mount location that has plenty of fresh air.
*Consider splitting your load - A smaller "pure sinewave" inverter for your TV, SAT and small sensitive gear...and a separate larger inverter for other larger loads might be a good way to upgrade. That way, you only use what you need.
