I have a Morningstar Sursine 300W inverter to power TV (23W) and a couple of other small loads including the battery charger for small batteries. For my set up the inverter plugs into the battery (6ga cable) and AC wires go back to a DPDT switch that switch between shore power to the AC breakers in the Progressive Dynamics power center. I am a strong believer is having separate sources for what ever application i.e. I have a separate printer and a scanner and if one fails it is less expensive to replace the part that failed. and they are both better quality than the combined units. What is the standby power draw from a combined converter/inverter (you are powering the inverter).

I think that is good advise, I mean, look what happend to Joanne!
Hope the new drawings (1 with and 1 without the battery charger) will meet with mass approval
And I promised some FREE graphics programs. Here are 3 that I know are pretty good to even great:

If you ever had guests over at home and no other option you could house them in comfort in the TD and with super early risers like my mother she could read the paper in the morning sun after a comfortable nights sleep due to heating or cooling all supplied by shore power while your charging batteries at the same time
I wouldn't over look it even if you don't think you'll need it, would be bloody ugly to add as an afterthought
