Recommended Pure Sine Wave Inverter With Switch to Power Refrigerator

Question:

Last year your group provided the information necessary for me to purchase an appropriate tow package for my motorhome. Im hoping you can also help me with an electrical upgrade Id like to make. I own a 2018 Forest River 32 foot Sunseeker Class C motorhome. It came with two 12 volt lead acid coach batteries. Im upgrading to two BattleBorn 12 volt 100 amp hour LiFePO4 lithium batteries. I have a Progressive Dynamics Inc Power Converter System Model PD4060K Panel Rating: 120V, 60Hz, 30A, Input: 105-130 VAC, 50-60 Hz, 1000W, Output: 13.6 VDC, 60A for charging my batteries from shore power. I also have a refrigerator that runs off propane or 120 v shore power. I would like to add an inverter that would let me run my refrigerator while driving. Ive attached the fridge specs. The BattleBorn representative assures me that the batteries will handle the frig requirements for the shorter travel times we have. Im not that knowledgeable about our electrical system but what I would like is a pure sine inverter that I can install that will draw power from my batteries when shore power is disconnected to run my refrigerator. I understand some sort of switch would be required to turn off the power converter when the inverter is on and vice versa but Im not sure the best way to get that accomplished. Any help would be appreciated. Regards

These electrical systems can be pretty confusing but believe me when I say that you are already more knowledgeable than many when it comes to what you need, and I'm happy to say we have the exact inverter to meet your requirements.

The Progressive Dynamics Pure Sine Wave Inverter w/ Transfer Switch - Remote # PD1210NR is the perfect option because it has an integrated transfer switch. This is automatic and the switch time is fast enough that there won't be any type of interruption of other electrical operations.

I have added a link to a video review as well as a link to the instruction manual for this inverter which I recommend taking a look at.
