There are inverters that have full AC transfer capability without a built in charger. This is one of many examples.

Any stand alone charger will be controlled by the appropriate breaker on the AC panel.

There are inverters that have full AC transfer capability without a built in charger. Xantrex Pro series inverters (1000 and 1800 watts) have both built in transfer switching and remote panels. There are others as well.

Any stand alone charger will be controlled by the appropriate breaker on the AC panel.

Re: Promariner 2500 or Xantrex Freedom 2000?

I have a Freedom 2500 inverter/charger, so far works fine, but thought I'd mention this approach:

A sistership bought off charter service in St. Maartin has separate charger and inverter, with the charger being 120/240VAC autoswitching, and the inverter straight DC-to-120VAC. The interesting part is that his cabin electrical is connected *only* to the inverter, so his "shore power" is AC-DC-AC at all times, even when plugged into 120V.

He's on a mooring and AFAIK seldom uses AC in these parts, but I kind of like the "go anywhere" appoach to running shipboard appliances without regard to what flavour of AC the marina provides.

And yes, if *either* the charger or inverter fail, he no longer has AC aboard. But still...
