2018 MADP inverter powers what?

On our 2018 MADP the inverter does not power the stove top or the microwave when dry camping. On our Allegro Buses the microwave did work off the inverter. It was nice to have this for short heat ups when travelling rather than firing up the genny. Are all the Newmars that way?

All Newmars? I don't know, but that's how our 2018 Mountain Aire is set up. Using the generator is not that big of an inconvenience for us. YMMV

We're fairly new to Newmar, would a coffee pot be on or off the list of inverter powered?

The best way to see what is powered by the inverter is to go to your circuit breaker panel. You will see half of the panel is shore power such as the AC's and the other section of the circuit breaker panel is the inverter items. Just review the labels for the breakers and you can see what is powered by the inverter.

Sorry, I was speaking more to the power draw of the coffee maker.

A coffee maker will be fine but any type that stays on, keeping the coffee or stored water, like a Kurig, hot, will use a lot of energy.

We use a 4 cup Mr Coffee ( 2 mugs of coffee ) and shut it off between uses. The 3 to 4 minutes of brewing is nothing on the batteries.

Check the breakers

On my 2018 MADP the inverter breaker panel has a label for microwave but... it's actually the basement freezer! There are other breakers that are labelled incorrectly too. I think the freezer and microwave wires got mixed up when the unit was built, I'm waiting for a reply from Newmar on this subject.

We have the same coach and my dishwasher is the lowest breaker on shore power and not inverted. Must be each tech wiring their own way.

On my 2019 DS, the microwave runs off the inverter, but not the dishwasher. I've never tried the cooktop or looked to see if the lights are lit. Since these all plug into outlets behind teh kitchen cupboards/sink, maybe they are just plugged into the wrong outlets.
