Lexington Inverter Location?

I cannot find the inverter on my 2006 Lexington 283GST. Nothing under either the driver's or passenger's seat. Breaker panel is attached to the bed support. Big black iron looking thing, square in shape with perhaps a fan on top is under one dinette bench. Sorry for no pic. I see no labels or wires attached to it. Trying to track down why 120v outlets not working without shore power or gen power. Resetting GFI with shore power on doesn't make them work after shore power is off. Using the forum search function, but cannot find previous threads. Thank you.

Do you have any paperwork indicating the size ( watts ) of the inverter ?

Some RVs the inverter is only attached to the TV ( 600 watts ); to power multiple outlets and perhaps a microwave would require , 1500>2000 watts .
The bigger units are mounted close to the coach batteries to keep the 12 volt power supply cables short . Large inverter would be 12 "x 12 "x 18"
An inverter of any size needs coach batteries in good condition to function .

EDIT : Just back from looking for specs , I can't find 2006 specs , but the 2008 283GTS doesn't list an inverter in the specs only a converter/charger , couldn't locate an option list either. Are you sure you've got an inverter ?
