I'll bet it had a 20 Cuft. residential Frigidaire in it too?

I'm proud to be alive and rollin' too. Peace!

Ours is 1989 and came with 1500 watts.

It can a nice control panel above kitchen sink for both activation and circuit selection o we can either use the microwave or other items.

Clever design that allows more outlets to be available on inverter with less risk of overload.

Yes, the shore and generator AC power will usually pass through the inverter and power the outlets also, if it's a hard wired inverter.

A stand alone inverter would not.

There should be an Automatic Transfer Switch that connects the outlets to shore power when it's available and then switched it to the inverter output when it's not. When you're on whore power the inverter is disconnected, so it doesn't matter if it's turned on or not as far as the outlets are concerned.

Alvo....when you're on "whore" power, is it more expensive?
