You have to look for a switch to turn an inverter on. Our 2012 SunSeeker has both. A 600 watt inverter to operate 2 outlets over the cab. That switch is located on the left as you come up the entry stairs.

Do you have a residential type refrigerator that operates on 120 volt ac? If so, you have an inverter to supply it for a short while with power. The length of time it will operate will depend on the size of your battery bank and how many amps available.

Yep, probably don't if it's not a residential fridge.
Unless a previous owner installed one.

You may have a (small) factory installed inverter if you have a 120 volt TV.

Don’t think inverters were common in 2010. Our 2012 has a 12 volt TV and an RV (ammonia absorption) fridge, and came without an inverter. I have since added a small one - a 400 watt pure sine wave one - for convenience, like using a soldering iron, e-bike battery chargers, etc. Your previous owner may similarly have added one, as mentioned above.
