This is a wise (and easy) thing to check. I recall that at least one of our main battery connections was only finger tight when we finished our first Escape adventure.

So it was too much resistance, but due to a loose connection rather than undersized wiring. It's good that you found this, since that connection (presumably for one of the dedicated cables to the inverter) would have been getting hot every time you used the inverter.
