Inverter Question

so my 06 adventurer 38t only has a 600 watt inverter, i see others have 1000-2000 so why on such a good size unit would it only have a 600 watt?

It was an option, even on our 2005 Journey DP the 2000 watt was optional over the standard 600 watt inverter

likely because the inverter is not designed/intended to power everything. our 2000-watt inverter powers our resi fridge, microwave, tv (2), sat rcvr and a few outlets. options and upgrades are profit centers for mfgs and dealers.

I don't think anybody had residential fridges back then. Did they? That is the biggy that our 1800w inverter powers.

It is meant to power your TVs and satellite receiver. Earlier models had 150 and 300 watt inverters.

Winnebago used a 600w inverter to power the entertainment appliances. IE: TVs, sat receiver, computer, etc.

Small inverter intended for small AC loads. The size of the RV isn't really relevant, it's what they expected the inverter to be used for that matters. As others have stated, I'd guess that it was only designed/expected to be used for watching TV, or some other equally light draw device(s).
