Vary clean setup!!I put mine on the back of the seat base because I have 2 lithium batteries under the seat. Because I have a 118WB van, it was important to maximize space where ever I could. View attachment 81767

Thanks for the suggestion...I considered that , but I will only use it when driving. It will run my Bluetti power brick that charges it at 3-4 times the rate as the ciggy plug. The bluetti has it's own inverter to deliver 120V in the living area. I'm installing shore power as well.Looks great.
I have one suggestion: add another on/off switch where it will be more accessible to where you are when you want to use the inverter. Your present one is not handy to the living area. Our inverter has a remote switch which I installed on the counter.
Looks great! Now you are an expert.Well, I have completed my inverter installation...and it works! Thanks to everyone who contributed to the thread, you made it easy! Here are some photos for anyone else that may find it useful: 1/2 bb plywood mount, bed-liner coated, mounted to seat cross members with U-bolts front and rear.

Positive and negative 6AWG cables...pos to 70A fused upfitter connection on battery, neg to battery minus terminal. Upfitter was disabled and new cable run under the rubber after reaming a 1/2 channel under the mat with a long drill bit. Used the same method to get the neg. cablr to the battery. Chassis ground is from the inverter to the seat frame. I took power for the inverter "on" function (green wire) from fuse #13 via a Piggy-back" thingy...5A fuses. Pilot light when inverter is on, and it can be shut off with the switch.
