Inverter controls

Hello everyone, my wife and I recently bought a pre-owned GT736k7. Itís an early 2021, built on a 2019 V10 chassis. Iím still learning all the ins and outs of it but I am especially perplexed on the inverter control panel. Is this something I need to actively change based upon situations, or just leave it alone?

Thanks,
Kevin

Do you have a residential fridge or an electric/propane RV fridge? I'm asking because the inverter may be required to run a residential fridge but I am not sure. Some residential fridges have their own inverter.

We have an RV fridge in our 2020. If I need to run on just batteries for any length of time I'll shut the inverter off because it can be a power hog.

If you're plugged in or on generator, the inverter detects that and bypasses itself automatically.

HTH,

Ray

It does have a residential fridge and the inverter has to be on for it to work unless on gen/shore power.
