Block heater.

I have a 2014 legacy class A. There is a cable with a male end in the compartment with the inverter. Would this be the block heater cable? Thank you.

Welcome to the forum its a great place to get your questions answered. My guess unless your inverter is in the engine compartment then No.

If it's not the block heater cable for the cumins what else could it be? Maybe a holding tank heater pad?

Yes that plug is your block heater. Mine has an outlet on the back wall to the right of the inverter to plug it into. 750 watts from what I have read. Inverter is hard wired. Holding tank heaters are 12v and switch is located on the panel in the coach where the water pump & water heater switches are.

Excellent. Thank you. The dealer I purchased this rig from wasn't overly familiar with this model. I'm learning on the fly. Some challenges. Nice rig though. I may have more questions going forward. Thank to people like you I may enjoy the rest of the challenges.

X2 on the electrical outlet for the block heater on the back wall of the compartment.

Make that x3. Works great in cooler weather, too. If temps get into the 30's while we're on the road, I plug it in.

Yepper, onboard/internal/self contained, block heater. What confuses many sales folks is the common external plug in for block heaters that require an external power source.
