how much money do you want to spend and what do you expect to run off of the inverter? do you already have an inverter/converter-battery charger or just a converter-charger? you may want to consider upgrading a converter-charger.
what size is your house battery bank? this will determine how much current you can use with an inverter and for how long.
you can add info about your rv to your ''signature block".

I have a Magnum Energy MS4024. That is a 4Kw 24VDC Sine Wave Inverter.
Magnum because “I” believe they are the best.
4Kw because I full time and if I need it, it’s there.
24VDC because it is the DC current in a circuit that is problematic.
Sine Wave because I now use a CPAP and might eventually need an oxy generator.
Modified sine wave inverters will run “most” equipment. Induction motors (Freon compressors) will run slightly warmer, that heat coming from your batters. Some clock circuits will not keep time accurately. Some small chargers (phone, screw driver, etc..) will get hot.
