I finally purchased and installed the inverter in my Explorer.

I chose a 400 v model from Xantrex ( PROwatt 400 ) . I got it at West Marine and paid about $85.99.

The Inverter is hard mounted under the rear driver’s side seat. The 12 v power is provided via a power block that is feed via an 8-gauge wire directly from the battery. Ground is to the metal of the floor.

The 115 v output is run with number 12 wire under the rear compartment carpet and fender cover to a 115 v duplex ( grounded ) outlet mounted on top of the driver’s side fender cover, The outlet is in an electrical box fitted into a cutout in the fender cover,

The installation looks very neat and is definitely a handy addition to my truck.
