Question for inverter users, I am fitting a 2000 watt inverter it will be hard wired to the lesure battery with the supplied leads as I know that the inverter should be close to the battery.
My question is, the inverter has two 3 pin sockets do I have to plug appliances directly into these sockets or can I run an extension lead from the inverter socket & connect it to a new socket further away from the inverter so I can plug appliances nearer he other end of the MH in a more convenient position?:help:

Your mains cable can be as long as you like; no need to worry about resistive losses at the higher voltages.

I wrote an inverter guide for another MH site but can't see a repository on this site for such guides. If there is one I'll copy here.
