And if not how do I turn it off?
My 2000 Beaver Patriot Thunder is very similar to your MH; the chassis and drive train are the same. I would assume that you have 50 gallon black and gray tanks; that's what we have.
If your inverter is hooked up the way mine was, virtually all the interior circuits in the MH run off a single 15A circuit. The inverter's other circuit was dedicated to the microwave. Your inverter has an internal transfer switch which essentially bypasses it when you are plugged into shore power but that doesn't change the fact that things are wired through the inverter's breakers. Turning off the inverter won't change that either. We leave our inverter on all the time.
Something to keep in mind is that your inverter is a modified sine wave type. If you are not hooked to shore power some electronic items will not like working off of an MSW inverter so be cautious. But if you are connected to shore power it doesn't matter.
