15amp outlet for converter?

I am replacing my inverter and converter because of a reverse polarity problem, on my Thor ACE 29.3, and the repair shop was unsure how long it would take to get the parts. I went into my underbed compartment to take pictures and prepare for replacement and the converter isn't plugged in. I can't find an outlet anywhere near the converter. What am I missing? Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Wow, that is an interesting one. My converter is hardwired into the electrical box as it sits about 12" away from it. That being said, just look around to make sure there is no outlet, even on the back of the electrical box cover. It seems strange they would put an converter where there is no power, does it have a plug already attached to it? If not then it is probably meant to be hardwired.

Your converter is wired directly to the breaker that powers it in the Power Distribution Panel (Breaker box). The converter should also be included as part of the panel in a 30 amp coach.
