Camper Inverter Install

by on Dec.26, 2011, under Misc Projects

The goal of this project was to add a 12V inverter to my¬† 19′ Palomino Puma camper.

First I purchased a Cobra CPI880 Power Inverter. While some of the higher power inverters from Cobra support a remote control & monitoring panel, this inverter does not have that feature. Since I planned on installing the inverter under the cabinet near the AC/DC distribution panel, I needed a way to turn the inverter on and off. I also wanted to be able to view the red and green status LEDs.

I decided to create a custom control panel and modify the inverter wiring to attach this custom panel to the existing power switch and status LEDs.
