Xantrex RC 7 won't turn on inverter (where is the inverter?)

Hello,

I have a second-hand 2007 Newmar Ventana.

I have never really messed with off-show power needs, but I have an Xantrex RC7 control panel, so I assume I have an inverter. I went looking for it today, and couldn't find it. Any idea where it is placed? I check all the basement areas and found nothing.

I have pressed the inverter button when it is on shore power, and it starts to blink, but when I unplug from shore power, hitting on/off just beeps at me.

I seem to remember this working before, but I could also be fooling myself.

Thoughts are greatly appreciated.

Kind regards,
Nathan

My inverter is between the frame rails and attached to the underside of the floor. You can't see it unless you empty the compartment and crawl in on your back. Mine is in 2nd compartment ahead of the rear wheels .... roughly behind the power/sewage area.

We also have a 2007 Ventana and the inverter is between the frame rails above the storage area. As indicated access is by laying in storage compartment. There is a circuit breaker on the unit, so check that first. On the overhead controller when the inverter is on there will be a green light next to inverter. There are also plug identified through out the coach that have stickers indicating they run off the inverter. Microwave also can run off inverter.
