as far as i know, your trailer doesn't come with an INverter, only a CONverter.
unless you or a previous owner installed one.

all RV's come with a CONverter, which converts 110v AC shore power to 12v DC power.
INverters do the reverse.

sounds like you're talking about a red led on the CONverter.

Ok I will look radio mounted into a cupboard. Have to unscrew it and pull it out. When I pull the fuse for both its good but red led light next to fuse comes on. By book says that means "open circuit"

that means another fuse in that line may be blown

TV should be 120 AC, but radio 12 VDC

It's possible it's a 12v tv.
