Look. at the inverter control panel. That will tell you whether our not the inverter is working. You can also disconnect shore and generator power and then turn the inverter on ands see if y9ou have power. coming through one of the outlets on the inverter circuit.

Tv should be powered by inverter. Like others have said, disconnect from shore power and see if your TV still works.

Thanks for the replies guys,
This might sound like a stupid question but is the control panel part of the inverter or a separate display elsewhere in the unit - the reason I ask this is that there is nothing on the inverter like a display panel, no on/off switch.

I have disconnected the shore power as suggested and the TV's are working, the fridge, interior lights are all also working. But there is no sound from the inverter - I assumed that it would be humming or something which would be an obvious sign that it was working.
That's why I asked the original question.
I was getting the unit ready for our first trip since Covid came along.

Thanks for the help and any other info forth coming.
Best Regards
