I guess the question is what in your trailer do you wish to run. Lighting is fine, some motors are ok. Things with transformers may or may not work.

And what is total load.

What is the inversion efficiency of this inverter?

I'd like to know how much energy is lost during the conversion from 12v to 120v. Also want to know what it's stand by power draw is (just while the thing is on with no ac load)

A general rule of thumb with most inverters / batteries , you need 30 % more in than what you get out .

Full load efficiency is 82%. Max efficiency (1/3rd load) is 87%. Power ON no load current draw is <1A.

Yes. But please remember the unit is not water resistant and it is not rated for ignition protection. It will power all the items mentioned. Two positive and two negative ring end 4 gauge cables are needed (These are available at CTC). Choose a dry ventilated mounting place less than 6’ away from battery. Connect the two positive cables to the two positive terminals on the inverter. Connect the two negative cables to the two negative terminals on the inverter. The two positive cables are now connected to the positive terminal of the battery. The two negative cables are now connected to the negative terminal of the same battery. Unit is now energized. Boating safety dictates no hazardous fumes are near the inverter and battery at any time.

No reason why not if cabling is heavy enough. Mount close to batteries, and then run the A/C side as longer runs to keep distances on DC side as low as possible. This will drain batteries quickly though if loaded so be aware of battery state if depending on them to start engine.

You're not saying how were you planning to use it, but one thing you need to know: this type of devices cannot be used on Hydro power service, for home emergency power back up, as it needs a special switch to prevent power from being sent back to the power grid, putting in danger the live of Hydro personnel.
Don't know this device, but for it's size it doesn't seem that it has that feature, for the reason, I just explained above!

The inverter is turned on and off by the switch on the front face of the unit. These units are not tied into the home electrical system so they do not turn on or off automatically during a power outage.

Inverter size does not matter as the current draw of the appliance, thus wattage.
Inverter is only a device to convert or step-up voltage from 12 VDC to 120 VAC.
Makes no difference if it's 50 watt inverter or 5000 watt inverter. Both will only deliver the output for what they were design for, and draw current depending on the demands from the appliance they are being used to power..
There will be slight current difference between the two due to electronic circuit draw between the two units, but difference is insignificant.

Using the same vacuum on the inverter, the current drawing from 12V battery is almost the same, the only difference is that normally speaking, it takes a little more power to run the 3000W inverter than 600W inverter, anyway, the difference is very small , even can be ignored.

Question

I purchase this 3000 watt inverter last week and brought it back because I could only get 93 volts AC when my incoming DV volts was 13.3.

My batterie bank is over 1000 A.H.
What should the DC volts be?

To properly utilize inverters, 200watts or bigger, they have to be wired directly into the battery, using no thinner than 4 gauge wire.
Positive has to be fused at the battery, and negative wire should be short, at least 4 gauge thick, and attached securly to the chassis.
Failure to do so not only will restrict the performance of the inverter, but also will overheat the cigarette plug wiring and the unit itself, resulting eventualy in premature failure.
In this case, I suspect the wiring was incorrect thus restricting the available amperage.
2000 watt continuous at 13.5 VDC (car running), can potentialy produce 18 A @ 110VAC, but will require almost 150 A @ 13.5 VDC.
That's a huge current draw.
You need at least 2 gauge wiring or thicker, prefered 1-0 gauge, and a good, short and solid ground.

answer 2
The output waveform of this inverter is a MODIFIED SINEWAVE. If you choose to measure the AC output voltage, you must use a TRUE RMS VOLT METER such as a Fluke 8060A, Fluke 87, Triplett 4200, Beckman 4410 or any “True RMS” multi-meter. Using any other type of voltage measuring device will result in an AC voltage reading of 10 to 30 volts lower than the rated value.

What kind of cables, and how many batteries

2 gauge or thicker. This will increase current Amps, without affecting the voltage thus still delivering 12 volts.
This is done in industrial electric riding floor machines and other industrial applications.
But...
If you connect batteries this way (parallel connection) without any voltage regulator to isolate the two batteries from each other, if one of the batteries has lower charge, it will be discharging (pulling power from it's "sister" battery).
Your batteries would have to be of exact size and condition.
Also to keep in mind, second battery would introduce 2X more demand your charging system.

You will want to use two positive and two negative 4 gauge cables with the ring terminal ends (Pass a bolt through them to secure them tightly). These are available at CTC stores in the automotive section. Connect both positive cables to positive of battery #1. Connect both negative cables to negative of battery #1. Do not use a chassis ground. You can add more batteries to give longer run time by connecting them to battery #1 in parallel (for a 12Volt system).

In case of large inverter, 1500W or bigger, the unit will not be able to operate at all on the cigarette plug due to huge voltage and amperage restriction.

definitely not. It needs to be directly hardwired to the vehicle battery, may even need 2 batteries.
the biggest eliminator you can use from the vehicle's 12v outlet/cig. lighter is about a 750 w eliminator.
