RE: Inverter

Our Class A has 4 house batteries, and a separate battery for the chassis. I used to only run the inverter while driving. Now I leave it on anytime the residential fridge is running. This way the power doesn't bump on/off when running on the generator, or shore power. Furthermore, with this pandemic, I'm using the fridge to store additional food while it is parked next to the house. Even though it's connected to shore power, the inverter stays on in case the grid power goes down. The inverter doesn't care. The inverter in the RV is a Xantrex Prowatt SW2000 model. Same one I have at home, used with my solar setup. This one has been running 24/7/365 since 2011, and powers my office, and workshop. I replaced the GFCI once, but no other issues. This is why I have no concerns about leaving the one in the RV powered when needed.

RE: jeep wrangler - where attach safety cables??

All aftermarket bumpers are not created equal. Mine is made from 3/16" steel, and bolted to the frame rails in multiple places, with grade 8 hardware. The hitch will likely tear free from the motorhome before the Jeep bumper comes off. I had considered drilling two holes on the bumper bottom lip, and using shackles. But I decided to use the fairlead roller on the winch to mount the safety cables. This is also 3/16" steel, and uses 4 grade 8 bolts. width=640 Take a look at where the safety cables/chains attach to the MH tow hitch. There's the weak link in my case. YMMV!
