2105 Allegro 34TGA Inverter

Typo'd the title. 2015 34TGA. Went and looked at the 34TGA today at the local stealership. I found the inverter in the front compartment drivers side but could not locate a remote control panel for it inside the coach. The inverter had a remote cable plugged into it. Anyone know if there is a control inside the coach and where it's located? The salesman was pretty knowledgable but didn't know the answer.

Never mind. I downloaded the owners manual and found that it turns on whenever there's no shore\gen power.

Just curious, what model inverter do you have? In my coach, same model but two years older, Tiffin provided a TripLite RV750. It has a remote on/off switch located in the front Passenger side cabinet where my tank monitor and slide controller are.

I haven't purchased yet just looking at units on the lot. On the 2015 there is no seperate switch for the inverter. Which brings up another subject. What year did they start installing the Spyder control for all of the 12 volt electrics? What has been the experience with it? Problems?

My 2013 has analog controls, ( for which I am thankful ). 2014 models I looked at had the new integrated control systems for lights, fans, etc. don't recall what Tiffin did for remote on/off of the inverter.

An after thought on this: If there is no remote ON/OFF switch, How would one turn the Inverter OFF when you don't want it running? Sounds inconvenient to expect an owner to open a bay and turn off the inverter directly every time he doesn't want it on......

You turn off the 12V switch by the door to turn off the inverter (and everything else 12V). Makes sense when you think through it - when I need to shut everything down on my Phaeton I have to turn off multiple pieces of equipment.

If I end up buying this coach I'm going to add the remote control panel. You can buy it on Amazon for ~$100. Then you will be able to control it from inside the coach without shutting down everything.

I have a residential refrigerator and I never shut it off. when plugged into shore power it just transfers the power through and when no 120 volt power externally, generator or campground, the inverter powers the refrigerator. I do turn it off when storing for the winter.

Considering the limited functions of that remote, I'd probably choose not to get it. I really never turn my inverter off unless I plan to store the coach for a few days. And if you are going to store your coach, you are going to turn the 12V switch off.

On the other hand, I do boondock, and we don't have a residential refrigerator, so I appreciate the ability to turn my inverter off inside the RV when not needed. ( it does draw current even when not powering any AC devices). In the case of the 2013 Allegro, the TripLite remote On/Off is a simple toggle switch rather than the currently available fancy switch assy that costs $100.
