Red face Okay, a 700 watt West Marine Inverter

does not come with mounting hardware and the instructions state to :

1. to avoid discharging the battery power source always turn off the power inverter and disconnect the inverter form the power supply when not in use.

2. disconnect the inverter from a vehicle when starting the engine


So, I should only "hook her up" when I'm planning on using the inverter?
If hooked up and using, do not start the engine?

Actually it was purchased for the blender this summer and perhaps a laptop to watch a movie or two.

My kayak surely didn't have these system issues -- of course the kayak wasn't propelled by the wind, didn't have a head, bunks, icebox, etc etc.

thanks guys, be as candid as you like, I'm a newbie and the curve is steep!
