If you've got enough solar panels (and sunshine) to replenish 400W for 3-4 hours, then go for it!
Not us. Too many trees. Lovely trees. Shady spaces to relax and listen to the water.
For me, because I am still not used to so many 'little draws', I want to preserve as many Ah as possible. I much prefer to lean on the up to 60# of propane sitting right next to the battery.
On topic: I had installed a 1,500W inverter in my previous trailer. 2' of #6 wire to feed it. You could microwave a cup of coffee from room temp to drinkable or 2 hot dogs from fridge to sizzling. Then the water pump wouldn't work properly.
No inverter in the new trailer.
