Default Re: Ac outlet

Can you be more specific? Does the inverter have a remote switch? How do you switch it on and off now?

Switching the inverter on the DC side will require a switch capable of handling the maximum DC current drawn by the inverter. Off the top of my head, that could be 50 amps or more. That's a pretty big switch.

You cannot (should not) mix the DC circuit and the AC circuit in the same conduit or junction/switch boxes.
