Just bought an 89 Sundancer 340. Previous owner installed a 2000W inverter in the bilge on the starboard side. From the little bit of research I've done the installation has multiple problems, please correct me if I'm wrong. It shouldn't be installed in the bilge with gas engines. It shouldn't be installed right above the batteries . And he rigged up an extension cord with two male ends, presumably to backfeed the system. He did use a heavy gauge wire with a fuse to connect to battery, for what its worth. My questions: Is it safe to have it in the bilge? Maybe if you run the blower when its being used? Not sure how its different than the spark created when firing up the engines. Is there any scenario that the backfeed setup is safe? Is it OK in a compartment with the batteries since they are AGM? I'm not turning it on until I work out all of the details. Thanks for any advice.
