How to hook up converter

Can I hook up a converter directly into the bus fuse panel to power all the interior and exterior lights ? I'm real nervous about frying my bus. If I disconnect the battery could I hook up to the disconnected terminals? 91 tc2000

I would hook it up directly to the battery or a #0 or #2 feed wire.

Try to park the inverter as close to the battery bank as possible. 4ga wire will work nicely.

Are you asking about a CONverter (which converts 120v AC into 12v DC) or an INverter (which makes 120v AC from 12v battery voltage)?
