Extra Breakers for Washer/Dryer & inverter I don't Have

I have a 2018 CC 38EL. Looking at my breaker panel I have two breakers for Washer/Dryer and I only have one combo unit that uses one plug. I also have a breaker for "Inverter Refer". Does this mean my rig is wired for the stackable washer/dryer and for a residential fridge? I have the RV gas/electric fridge that does not use a converter - in fact I don't even have a converter. I also have a 12 volt fuse labeled "15 amp scare lights". I don't think I have one of those either.

Your rig is wired for a washer, and a dryer, and a residential refrigerator. The inverter would operate only the res. refrigerator when on battery power only. You do have a converter, it charges the batteries when you are connected to shore power or to the truck.

A converter changes 120 volts AC to 12 volts DC. you do have one.
An Inverter changes 12 DC to 120 volts AC. You would have on If you had a residential fridge. You may be pre-wired for Washer/dryer combo. and Resi fridge.

I am surprised that you have an inverter because it is only used for a residential refrigerator. Even if you have a breaker, it might be empty. Easy to check.

I mis-spoke on the converter. I know about inverters vs converters. I do not have an inverter unless it is hidden real well. I guess I will have to look into the inverter breaker and see where it goes. My guess is that it may power the fridge for the 120 volt since it is a gas/electric.

The wiring for the residential refrigerator is probably there. The inverter in located in the front storage compartment on the right side. There is a black curved plastic cover (backs up to battery compartment). Do you have 1 or 2 batteries? If they installed the inverter, it should have at least 2 batteries but I doubt it is there. There are individual circuits for the washer and the dryer both 110v located in the closet. We do not have the washer and dryer but I use those plugs to power some computer equipment that I located in the closet.
