We need help, please

We recently bought a presidio 39c diesel pusher. We bought it on the guarantee that it has a magnum inverter but we can't find it. We've looked everywhere. Does anyone have any suggestions where it might be? It isn't in the cupboard with the converter and doesn't seem to have a remote. Thanks in advance

Welcome!

Sorry I can't help as not being familiar with your coach. Someone will likely be along soon that can help.

I suggest to provide more details of your coach - year, model, etc. More info makes it easier to help.

The inverter is in the last bay on the passenger side, behind the bay with batteries.

Inverter Locations

Most inverters are located in the basement storage compartments and not inside the coach itself. I suggest looking the basement compartments.

unfortunately ours isn't, that was the first place we looked. Any other ideas? It's a 2006 presidio 39c.

If that's what it looks we don't have and we'll be discussing it with our salesman. Thanks for your help, very much appreciated

Are any of your AC outlets energized when you're unplugged from shore power or not running generator? If yes, then you have a working/turned on inverter. If no, then you either don't have one or it's turned off.

It MAY be hidden behind or underneath a panel. (Look in the kitchen sink area).

Inverters are often mounted near your batteries. There are large battery cables going between the batteries and inverter. You can try to trace the cables if you see them on your batteries.

If you have a Magnum Energy inverter you should have a remote control panel somewhere in the coach. It will have Magnum Energy on it and a large knob and some pushbuttons to control the inverter. There are buttons to turn both the charger and the inverter on or off.

Also, salesmen only lie when their lips are moving

Good input to look for large fat wires from the house batteries, they should lead you to the inverter if it exists. And also to look inside for the remote panel that you can use to turn on/off such an inverter. If you find it, and turn it to 'on', then plug in an item and see if you have power (as mentioned, with the coach power off and generator not running).

And most coaches have some sort of inverter, so a salesman may have 'assumed' it had one. If the previous owner had a problem, and took it out instead of replacing it, possibly this was missed during trade in and the salesman did not know. Going in with an open 'let's fix this' is a good way to start. If you then get blown off, step up the game as needed. Even a compromise like, they cover parts and you cover labor to install, may be a win/win. Suggest if you need to put one in, do research and get a Pure Sine Wave unit, with a good charger. Worth paying a bit more on this item. Another way to go with this dealer, is to agree to pay the cost difference in what stock inverter vs Pure Sine Wave inverter would have costs.

Get this behind you, and go out and have some fun,
Smitty

Thanks everyone for your help. We didn't think to look around the sink so we'll look there for sure. We haven't found the control panel either. We know for sure it isn't working but we're getting closer thanks to all of you. My husband needs a CPAP machine so either we find it or install one. Funny thing is we have the books for the inverter and the panel. Thanks again, I'll let you know how it turns out.
