Power Inverter on 2018 Wildcat 5th wheel

My 5th purchase materials included a manual on a power inverter. Not sure where the inverter is in the unit though. Any ideas where I can find it in a 2018 Wildcat 5th wheel?

Many thanks.

don't know your layout, but look right near the batteries. many times the inverter is in the same compartment. look at all the walls of the compartment. ours is mounted to the ceiling above the batteries.

Great - many thanks for the tips. I'll take a look and see. Also, trying to see if I need to turn the inverter on. Right now, when I am running on battery power, there is no juice coming from the outlets.

I turn mine on before unplugging the main power. It is only there for the domestic refrigerator. It does not run any other outlets. We usually stock up at home before a trip and the invertor allows our refrig to stay cold until we arrive and "plug in". We don't boondock so this works well for us. I don't leave it on when plugged into campsite or home power.

O.K. Many thanks for the information. I need to go exploring "Under the hood" to see what I find.

It may only be tied into the fridge, and/or tv.
There will be a remote switch somewhere.
