Redo: Rewiring circuit panel for inverter

Sorry, I asked my question wrong last time and couldn't figure out how to correct it. Heres my retry.

I have solar with a 2k watt inverter (450 amp hr system) on my current fifth wheel. I am thinking about buying a new fifth wheel which is wired for a converter and moving my equipment over to it. Is it possible to safely rewire the circuit panel box for an inverted circuit without setting a secondary panel? The inverted circuit would consist of 3 receptacle circuits and a microwave. Thx

Most likely not.

All of the breakers will be on bus bars that are supplied by shore or generator power

You would need to cut a bus bar leaving slots for an inverter in breaker and the branch circuits out.

On many breaker box's, every other breaker is on L1 then L2 hot lines if 50 amp service.

Maybe find a replacement box used with inverters.
