SOURCE: Can A cobra inverter be plugged in to 115AC for DC 12volt output

in a word no!,,,,it cannot and you may blow it up if you hook it up to the 115ac volt supply,,,in side it there is a switch mode power transistor,,that bumps up the 12 volts to 115 volts it only works the one way,,that is 12 volts dc in and 115 volts ac out,,,,

SOURCE: 200/400 watt Powerline Dc to AC Inverter blows fuses

If the inverter is blowing the fuse immediately upon plugging in the inverter (before you even plug something into the inverter) you most likely have a short in the 12V power cord. If you have an Ohm meter, you should be able to check the resistance across the two contacts on the 12V plug of the power cord. Wiggle it around some. If you get a very low reading, and especially if it's intermittent, you have a bad cord, which should be pretty easy and cheap to replace. My experience with these cords has been that their quality is pretty poor.
If that is the problem, maybe you can cannibalize a cord from an old CB radio, but here's a fairly heavy duty one on Amazon (they don't give an amp rating though)

There are 8 40A fuses inside this unit. In the following pics you will see a bank of 4 and another bank with 3 of the 4 removed. I'm currently working on mine as it will cost me more to ship and have Cobra repair than I paid for the unit ($133 to repair). Good luck with your problem

SOURCE: 175 watt 350 peak inverter 12v dc to 110 ac need

15/16 amp would be recommended.
You could to try a 20 amp, but you will risk overheating and the possible failure of the vehicle circuit fuse.

SOURCE: cyberpower 1000 watt 12 volt

When the wattage of an invertor is specified it is meant for the power load but with a gradual CURRENT drain. If you load with modest loads of lighting , fan or other low wattage device it will work without tripping off. In this case your microwave when loaded will initially start up with a large surge current requirement thereby shutting off the invertor as it detects overload. So the safe limit to operate a microwave is to have an invertor above 2000 watts . If the input supply is 24 volts , then it will be more powerful.
Also try with a low wattage/heating setting on the microwave, tighten the battery terminals of the battery . Sometimes it might start but can also damage the invertor. failure of the driver MOSFETS.

Sounds like the transformer is done. Have a big switch on the DC side, to turn it off when not in use. Being on all the time burns it out.

My 12 V 400 watt inverter worked fine until recently, when in would no longer power anything. I checked the AC output voltage and am gettting only 25 volts, rather than the 110-120 volt range. Any...

My guess would be the power oscillator mosfets. Was the 25V AC or DC? If there is no AC and the output is DC then the chances are very good that one of the switching mosfets that produce the AC is shot. These are usually set up in an H-Bridge configuration and both the neutral and hot leads alternately get switched between high voltage DC and ground, producing a modified sine wave output. For the cost of one of these inverters, it might be cheaper to just buy a new one and recycle the old.

I'm dumb. Can I hook an inverater to my generator and produce more enegry than my generator produces???

Please understand that the generator produces power from fuel with an engine wheras the invertor is one which genrerates power from a stored battery using the principle of frequency switching a DC source to induct and produce AC.
Now you can have an uninterupted power supply setting with the invertor backed up by the generator so that when the battery voltage goes down you can start and charge the invertor and also supply the extra energy .
the ratings of both must also be considered.
