Your Aims 3000 Inverter/Charger should have a transfer switch built into it. At least our 2000w Aims did. Ours would seamlessly switch between solar and shore/generator power, though we were on...

There seems to be 2 main makers of RV water heaters, Suburban and Atwood. They're probably similar in quality. We chose the Suburban SW6DE. It takes up quite a bit of room installed in the base...
