12v system

My 2716g will not run the 110v outlets when running on 12v car/battery. ? All breakers/ fuses are fine?

If you don't have a inverter you will not have 110v. Only the things that work from 12v dc will work from the battery

When you plug into a pedestal, at home or connect a generator, you will get 110 at the AC outlets.

your 110v AC outlets only will work with shore power or a generator, just like the microwave or the a/c.
you would need to wire in an inverter that connected to the outlets, which would require a minimum of two deep cycle batteries to run your outlets.

popups don't come with inverters, usually only motorhomes.

another example of a poor PDI by a dealer.

something as basic as how both 12v DC and 110v AC systems work in a RV, should always be a part of a good PDI. a lot of new buyers don't know about what works on each system.

Here is a good article by Mark Polk that may help explain your RV's electrical system(s)........and what works off of 120 volt AC as opposed to 12 volt DC.
