What is the invertor wired to?

I have a inventor in the over head compartment (passenger side), where does it provide 110? If it is switched off do those plugs have 110 provided by shore power?

Mine is a very different model, but the inverter powers the two TVs, and a couple plugs in the bedroom. The plugs work normally when on shore power.

I have a 2005 Itasca. My overhead 300 watt inverter provides power to both TV 110v outlets. Also the 110v outlet that power the CD/VCR player.

I plug an extension cord into the front CD/VCR player 110v outlet and use this to power a laptop or two. Caution: only 300 watts total capacity from the inverter. That works for me.

In my '02 Journey, the inverter powers only the outlets on the back of the inverter. And when I moved in, it only powered the Vizio TV right next to it. I added an extension cord to also power the satellite, SWiM PSU, and the DirecTv receiver in the cabinet over the driver (an extension cord is probably what originally was there). I felt comfortable doing that because all the equipment is newer and uses less energy than the original '02 stuff...like the big ol' tube tv that came with the RV has been replaced with a 31" LCD unit.

I think it's set up this way to prevent the satellite system from having to reacquire the satellite signal in the event of a short term power outage. With DTV, it takes several minutes and if you were watching a game, would be very frustrating.

I have access to the extension cord, to power my Android tablet if necessary. My inverter is not wired to the rear TV.

If you can tell us which model Adventurer you have I can point you to the wiring diagram which details what's connected to the inverter.

Laughing, I'm assuming you mean INVERTER. Chris will bring into here the right wiring for your situation but, as you've been told, if you have an inverter in your TV cabinet, its' a small one and only powers up components in that cabinet. Typically they're anywhere from 200 to 400 watts.

Inverter 03 Anventurer

Just looked mine up. It's a Dimensions WIN12300T. 300 WATT. It only provides power to TV and VCR/DVD player.
I have a power strip plugged into mine. Just need to be careful with the watts you pull from it. I have not traced the input back to see where it picks up it's 12V

Below is www site with Service Tips WIT Club News June 2002

FYI My converter is under the fridg. It's a MagneTEC 7445. 45 Watts.

When I get the $$ I'm going to upgrade both of these.
