You stated that all outlets work on the 20 amp breaker. If that's the case, its not the inverter, if you even have one.

An inverter inverts 12 volts DC into 120 volts AC, when the RV is not plugged in.

To check for an inverter you need to follow any large battery cables that may go to it.

I don't think they were to popular in older Class C MHs.

I installed one in my 1999 Class C. I had to add some battery capacity, since it only came with one house battery.

My guess would be I don't have an inverter since nothing requireing ac current works without the gen. or shore power. I'll eventually get around to tracing some wires from the breakers to the 30 amp outlet. Everything works for now so I'm not feeling any urgency. Besides the mh is in storage covered up. I really appreciate all your input.

I had a similar problem and got very frustrated called tech support and discovered the inverter does run some of the outlets even when you are plugged in at least on my coach. . And there are two breakers on there one 20 and & one 30 amp one of which was tripped
