In addition to previous cautions mentioned, you would also energize your trailer umbilical's male plug - certainly not a good idea to have 120 volts at the bare plug prongs.

I wasn't suggesting back feeding, but rather a separate input to a transfer switch for the inverter. Perfectly safe, done with backup generators all the time. (may not be terribly cost effective though)

Tex, you can't do it the way you are describing. You can wire an inverter into your load panel to handle all your AC outlets. We run the electric coffee maker & the microwave as well off of battery power while boondocking. We've run the air conditioner for 30 minutes once and also, by mistake, ran the fridge of off AC power when it should have been on propane. See my pics on my mod.

Big Sky, I think you got me mixed up with someone else... I didn't describe any way of doing any modifications.

There is The right way to do it and a wrong way. The way your describing is the wrong way. Don't do it. Unsafe. Plus you will waste alot of energy if it does work.

Sorry Tex, you're right. I meant to address the original OP, Tawoo.

This is one of those things: if you have to ask don't do it. If you could write a paper on it and get an A+ and 2 smiley faces, then do it. You can't use a battery and also charge it at the same time with it's own power output, that will not work on earth. What is the wattage output of all the things that can be unintentionally turned on by someone other than you?
