Just curious. A sub-panel arrangement is the best solution as there is less chance of trying to run a high load like a water heater with the inverter.
Make sure you keep the neutral in to the inverter separate from the neutrals out, a separate bus is best. I recently replaced a Freedom inverter that failed after not doing this and removed another for the same reason after a small fire - not sure if this caused it but it didn't help. Only the ground is common.
