I have a 2000 Watt inverter installed on the Firewall, just behind the PORT storage hatch. (can't type kockpit cause this forum subs in Thingy Bit every time I do). Connects to the CGP (Common Ground Point) and the CPP (Common Positive Point) in that same area on the wall. I remote the ON/OFF switch to a self built panel just above the stove inside. It also has two plug in AC outlets on the panel. So all operation of the inverter AC is on the panel inside. No noise, no heat and easy to get to. I have a very non-legal cable I plug into the Inverter Outlets and plug into a GFI wall socket for powering the boat's AC outlets. (Only when shore AC is OFF). Not a good practice but works fine and I'm the only one that uses it. I know not a good idea. So that's where I have my inverter.
