If you're wanting to keep 240 volt running, it needs to be on. If you have nothing running at 240 volts, it's off. The engine is charging the batteries, charging is only used when you're connected to shore power.

Morning all in what mode should my inverter be whilst cruising, on, off or charging. Thanks in advance.

Just clarify what you mean by inverter? do you mean combi as an inverter does not have a charging capability?

Yes sorry my inverter is an inverter charger

In that case, as Tony replied: ‘On’ if you need 230V whilst cruising, ‘Off’ if you don’t.

Thanks very much for the advice

Whilst actually cruising, might as well leave it on. Only point of turning it off is to avoid the small power drain when it’s on but not doing anything, which will come from your batteries when the engine isn’t running.

"charge only" when on shore power. Then if the electric goes you will know about it. If you have it to "on" while on shore power & the electric goes, it will be 'inverting' your electric from your batteries draining them to flat without you noticing.
