Where are you located?  Yeah you need shore power or generator if you are going to run an AC unit off an investor. Especially if your battery bank is 12 v. We run a swap cooler with a DC motor so it doesn’t use the inventor. Pulls around 18A and can run it from 10am to 8pm in the summer without draining the 840ah battery bank. Bank fully charged by 11am.
ha ha John - your autocorrect doesn't know what an inverter is !
