For 2006 era Southwind or Bounder that installed an inverter, where did you mount the inverter? Thanks.

Welcome to the group. Lots of good info and ideas here.

My '99 Bounder battery bay was the front bay on the drivers side. The inverter would have been placed as close as possible. Probably in the front bay on the passenger side. It was not in the slide out bays.

In our '08 we upgraded to four 6v batteries and added an inverter.

Relocated the batteries from under the step to the first passenger side bay behind the door. We partitioned off the area where the batteries are located to prevent gases from affecting any other components and added several vent holes. On the other side of the partition we mounted the inverter so the cable run from the batteries is less than 2 feet.
