Inverter Question

Just bought a new 2016 Thor ACE 29.3 and am preparing for our first adventure.

The Xantrex Pro Inverter XM 1800 does not seem to be hooked up to the Refrigerator, Microwave or any of the outlets. The only "appliances" that work off the inverter are the Televisions. Even the outlet for the DVD player works, but nothing else that requires 120 VAC will work.

Have others had this same issue? Short of rewriting the system, am I overlooking something?

Thanks for the assistance.

You don't need the inverter for the fridge since it will run off propane. The microwave pulls a lot of amps which is probably why it's not hooked up. The inverter should power your outside kitchen fridge, if not I would have it checked by the dealer.

It only powers outside fridge, tv/dvd outlet, and in my 29m the outlet in the front passenger seat work area.

Forgot about the desk outlet. I've never turned on the inverter since delivery, usually have the generator running to power AC and have only used the outside fridge for storage, never turned it on either except at delivery.

Thanks Jerry. IT is good to know that my situation is "normal". I had not checked the outside refrigerator. I will check that, and the other outlets you mentioned.
