Does my 2009 Cardinal have an inverter?

I recently bought a 2009 33RK 5th wheel and love it so far. The previous owner said it has on on-board inverter that delivers power to some of the outlets in the coach. However, I've had no luck finding an outlet with inverted power. Does anyone know if this model came from the factory with an inverter?

Thanks!

What type refrigerator do you have. Normally they only install an inverter if yours is equipt with a residental 115 vac refrigerator.

If there is an inverter, you need to find it and turn it on I would think. Can you still contact the previous owner for the location?

Look in the front basement compartment. If there is one, it would be mounted very near the batteries. It has an on/off switch. About the size of a shoebox.

No your 2009 Cardinal did not come with an inverter from the factoy. If it has one it was put in by the previous owner. Your unit does have a converter/charger but that is a completely different animal. Trailer manufacturers began putting inverters in the trailer when they began putting in residential style refrigerators.
