It is not prewired, however the batteries are in the step well and the Battery Control Center is there as well. Easily accessible if you or the dealer wanted to install one.

We used to offer inverters and no one ordered them. Most people that did get them wanted them for TV & DVD. So instead we went to 12V TV's and DVD player. Eliminated the cost of the inverter and simplified the process. Depending on what you want to run, you can get a 12V plug in style inverter.

We do not pre wire for inverters on any of our Class C's. I'm not an expert on Inverters, I'll see if I can get JMiller45 to chime in here.

The minor issue with the batteries is what to replace them with? There are (2) in the step well and space will be an issue.


Turbo had some good links on what to expect.

I have a 2012 Solera w/ a dealer installed 600 watt inverter. They located the inverter on the floor at the back of the drawer below the sink. The on/off switch is located in the left stairwell panel next to the other switches. I was told that it was a quality inverter with good sine wave rating. That becomes important so the converted 12V to 110 is clean and does not cause havoc with any items you intend to power up. (i.e. tablet, laptop, etc.)

The duplexes that were effected were the bedroom divider wall plug, and the overhead plug above the entrance door. My guess is that those plugs were on the same circuit when they cut it in.

I had the dealer throw that in to make the deal, so I don't know what it cost them.
