I was going to keep the basic AGM 12v battery the trailer came with as backup and setting up the slide out and awnings, charged from the vehicle as I drove there. Plus the solar controller can charge different types of batteries connected to it. Like a house battery and vehicle battery. Once set up I would plug in the shore power cord to the inverter and defuse the battery charger in the load center, to not create a cycle of charging from the battery to the battery. Also switch to just the lithium battery and turn on the inverter when ever we needed to use the microwave, etc. Any ideas of why this wouldn't work? I am eliminating the need for an automated switch box for shore power this way. Both the solar charger and battery have bluetooth apps to monitor power usage and generation. I would never connect both batteries together.
The LI capacity is not going to match the inverter output.
I suggest looking at SiO2 jars. Here is a link https://azimuthsolarproducts.com/pro...atteries/sio2/
