- Cigarette lighter inverter installation - Direct to the battery bank - Direct to AC distribution box
Installing inverters using the cigarette lighter may be ok for car camping, but for longer-term RV living, they’re not a viable solution.
The primary purpose of an inverter is to power AC appliances when you’re boondocking and have no access to a mains electrical supply.
Instead of connecting AC appliances to the inverter’s outlets, you could use an extension cord.
Installing inverter wiring to fitted outlets means connecting your appliances to those sockets instead of the inverter or extension cable.
Remote switches are compatible with some inverters. They’re handy if you’ve installed an inverter in a hard-to-reach position.
