Default where to mount 2500w inverter?

I have a 2003 Gulf Stream 33' Sun Voyager, gas model. I plan on doing mostly boondocking, so I bought a 2500w inverter and lithium battery. Currently all batteries are mounted in front of engine, behind front grill. If inverter needs to be mounted close to batteries, where can I put it? It seems there is no extra room in there where it will stay dry.
I am a total beginner, and am still renovating and repairing motorhome, so I do not know everything I should. And I am not 100% comfortable doing too much electrical work, but am learning as I go, and trying to do my best. And help or recommendation are appreciated. I am looking to mount inverter in best possible location, and hopefully an easy location.
Thanks.

I would move the battery to an inside location close to the converter. Unlike lead acid batteries, lithium batteries can be inside with no ventilation required.

Thanks for the info. Maybe I will try to mount batteries and inverter in one of the underneath storage compartments near the converter. But I will need to do some research first, as electricity is not something I like to mess with! So I need to make sure I am moving correct wires, and using correct gauge wire.
Thanks for the reply and advice!
Also will look into changing converter to a lithium converter, to charge batteries properly.
