Which ac house plugs run off the ac converter/inverter?

I understand that the ac inverter/converter (when the RV is not plugged into house current or when the generator is not running) converts battery power to110v house current to run some small appliances. Which plugs would receive power from the inverter when it is operating? Is it all of them or just some of them? The GFI plugs? I was just wondering. Thanks for any help that you can give.

All of ours are powered off the inverter.

It varies from coach to coach. Hopefully someone fam with your coach will be able to answer specifically.

My previous coach had just a couple outlets, the television, microwave, and backup camera system powered by the inverter.

My current coach all are powered because the shore cable is plugged into the inverter when you want to use it - the whole coach then operates via the inverter. One has to managed the loads and usage, but have the flexibility of anything can be powered.

It would depend on what size inverter you have. If it's only 400 watts or so then probably only your tv outlet would be powered. If it's 2000 watts then most likely all your outlets would work. The easiest way to find out which ones work is to unplug from shore power and gen off. Then turn on inverter and plug a lamp or other appliance into each outlet. Then you will know.

On a used coach it would depend on what the original owner wanted.
If you pull the shore power cable and just use the inverter set up, use a meter or lamp indicator and go around the rig, plug into outlets to see which ones have power.
Some rigs may have two inverters a small one feeding just the outlets up front for TV and other electronics and outlet near floor passenger side.

Since the OP is posting on the Newmar forum I assume he has one.
I've never seen or heard of a Newmar being set up that way from the factory. Our 2000 DSDP only came with a 400 watt inverter for the entertainment setup. Our present DSDP has a whole house 2000 watt MSW inverter and it seems to power everything.

A later option installed not from factory and on used coach, why fuss with the other already installed with wiring to its outlets.

Ours came with a 600watt inverter and only powers rear TV, front entertainment cabinet and one outlet behind the driver seat.
