2015 Bounder unknown switch

Newbie to Rving I'v only had my 2015 35K Bounder for a month. Bought used from General RV, love this coach. I have a bunch of questions for you folks and any help would be greatly appreciated.
What is the switch /monitor located at the entry and it's the closest to the bottom step. It has a button in the center and it has something to do with the inverter being on or off during Shore Power I believe.

Welcome to iRV2

Sorry I can't give you an exact answer to you question , but many inverters would automatically by-pass once shore power is established, no need to turn them off .
Because part of the inverter function when on shore power , would be to charge the coach batteries.
I would think the switch would be to switch the inverter off when the coach is not being used to avoid running the battery down.

A couple of things to confirm this ( if no member with a similar unit can give the answer) would be a picture of the switch and the make and model of the inverter.

There is great need for a sarcasm font.

That's is exactly what that is, the monitor for your inverter/charger. If you push the button, when off shore power, it will turn on the inverter. The other lights indicate the state of the charger and input power being used.

Its the MM-RC on the bottom of this page: https://www.magnum-dimensions.com/mo...emote-controls\

You will find that only the TV's /Sound system and one or two outlets are powered by the inverter.


Hope you enjoy your big new toy!

Cool...glad to help.

I just happened to have that page bookmarked, I've been thinking about upgrading the batteries. In order to convert to lithium, you have to have the ME-CR and a specific version of firmware. The ME-CR allows you to plug in charge/limit parameters to effectively charge anything.

The MM-CR can do flooded and AGM, not lithium.
