Great thread! So I have a question to add to this.

My plan is to keep my WFCO WF-8955-AD... I am adding a 2000w inverter. I will continue to charge my bank from my WF-8955-AD when on shore power. Solar will be charged from my Victron MPPT.

I will be using a Renology 2000w iverter with the remote switch.

If I get the auto-transfer switch - do I still need to deal with the battery charging aspects of the WF-8955-AD (meaning, do I still need to do something to turn off the charger so that the inverter isn't trying to charge the batteries?

My thought is to set up a kind of relay whereas when the inverter is turned off, it switches the charger side of the WF-8955-AD off. But I'm not entirely certain if this is the right path. It sounds super slick my head. LOL.

Yes, you will need to do something either manual or automatic that will disconnect the charger side. The easiest manual method would be to have the charger on its own 15 amp breaker and switch it on and off as needed. A relay sounds like a good automatic solution, but I have no experience working with relays on AC circuits so I don't have an opinion on that possible solution. Hopefully others can provide additional input.
