O'day 272 LE Power Inverter

There is a 110v plug in the galley, I was wondering if that is wired into the 12v system using an inverter or is that only able to be used if shore power is plugged in. Just bought the boat and didnt check any of this until boat is dry docked with batterys removed. Please let me know what you know about this. I have the manual too and it doesnt make it any clearer in this respect

I doubt if there is an inverter. My guess is shore power only.

Check your electrical panel for inverter control. It may look something like:

Sorry to dig this up from the grave but have you found your shore power connection yet? The 272 LE should have an AC breaker above the galley sink follow the wires out the back of that to your shore power inlet. Your boat had shore power from the factory unless previous owner pulled it all out.

yes I found that, would there be an easy way to install an inverter to use with the engine running and then use the outlet when shore power is on? Using the same outlet?

That is generally how it is done. For small loads (recharging cell phone batteries), the engine does not have to be running; for heavy loads (microwave), the engine is needed.

I will leave the wiring explanation to the experts.

So if you get a top of the line permanent install inverter or a inverter charger they normally have a transfer switch, that allows your ac plugs to pull from your battery's via the inverter, in the case of the 272 I am not sure you want a $2500 inverter... Just go with a simple inverter from costco or something and run it from a cigarette lighter hookup in your galley or direct wire one to your battery bank, and run a ac plug to your galley for simple access. I would keep it simple and keep cost down.
