I didn't get one with my 2014 and it wasn't even an option. My in laws also just bought a 2017 sandstorm (same thing as shockwave) and theirs didn't come with one nor was it an option on the build sheet. So unless the dealer installed it you only have a convertor. If you do have an inverter they should have explained to you how to turn it on.
I wired one in though to my trailer with a switch to automatically kill the converter breaker so that I don't have an electrical loop.
Like everyone has said, you need the generator on, shore power or an inverter to run tv.
You could get a small 300-400 watt inverter to run the tv. My trailer has a cigarette lighter just above the tv so it wouldn't have cords everywhere if I did it that way.
