Expert Reply:

If you actually mean that they're wired in parallel, where they're providing more capacity but still putting out 12v of total power, the Wagan 1000w Power Inverter # WC3720 will work for your application. If these batteries are wired in series, which would give you a 24v output you would need to go with a 24v power inverter similar to the GoPower Industrial Pure Sine 1000w # 34279949 . This inverter provides a GFCI outlet for added safety, in addition to the added voltage capacity.

I'm attaching 2 diagrams that show the difference between parallel and series wiring of batteries.
