As far as inverters go....there are several choices in addition to wattage....


First one is modified sine wave vs true sine wave; they both work, although some folks claim to have had trouble powering certain things with MSW. I've installed a couple of MSW inverters for others with zero issues. These days due to advancement in semiconductor technology nice TSW units are quite inexpensive. Samlex units on Amazon are a nice solution if you are on a budget.



The other question to ask yourself is do you want a combo inverter/charger?? You can always install a separate charger to run 12V things off of shore power when you are plugged in and to charge the house and starting batteries. If you have little need for shore power and typically remote camp, you may not need a charger, especially if you do a reasonable amount of solar, like 200 watts or more.
