In our coach the inverter is typically installed in the electrical compartment, which is the one that houses the 50A shore power cable.  It sits directly opposite the battery compartment but is every bit of the 10′ limit to run up into the coach, over, and back down on the other side.  In fact, the inverter needed to be mounted as close to the top of the cabinet as possible which meant building an angle-iron rack for it to sit on.
