Ok. I I switched off the shore power. The lights work. The refrigerator stayed on. The only things that didn't come on, were the television and the ceiling fan. I checked voltage on the two cables in the pic, and had 12v dc across the two. So I'm guessing that it does not hook up to the batteries.

Right on. I do have two batteries. It is cut out of the pic. It's right next to the one in the pic, and has cables paralleling the two. I'm still stumped on these mystery cables.

I also have the 2016 377 FLIK. When running on batteries, does your inverter light come on when you turn it on? We have the home refer. My refrigerator would not operate when shore power was disconnected. I had to connect the cables marked inverter to battery for inverter and frig to work.
We love our unit. Picked it up July of last year and camped 32 days un 2015

From what I'm seeing in your picture, those 2 wires are for connecting to an INverter which converts 12V DC from the batteries to 120V AC. You also have a CONverter that does the opposite - the converter converts from 120V AC to 12V DC. The converter is usually in a brown power centre with 120V AC breakers and 12V DC fuses.

Do you know if you have an inverter installed? If there is an inverter, it's not connected because if it was, the 120V AC appliances would work without shore power connected.

I have found both, the inverter and the converter. The inverter appears to be running. When I flip the inverter switch on, I do hear it running. There were a few 120v items that did not come on when I was off of shore power though. Should I hook the cables up to the battery and see if that solves it? Like I said, I check voltage across the cables, and I got about 12v dc.

Your tv and ceiling fan only works when connected to shore power. Is your refrig a dc and gas or house 110 only unit? Mine unit has a 1000watt inverter for only the refrig
That ios the way mine works anyway

The refrigerator is a house 110v unit.
And yes, the fan and tv only work when hooked to shore power.
Does your unit have these cables? And are they hooked to the battery? Thanks

They weren't when we picked up camper. We have a Whirlpool refrigerator and when I would disconnect shore power the frig would go out. Open door and no lights. Hookerd up the invertor cables and worked as it should.
