Operation of house power

I recently purchased a 2005 Graniteridge 3100SS. My prior class C was a 1993, 21 ft Itasca.

My question is regarding the power in the unit.
In the Itasca, the power cord plugged into a box inside the unit in order to provide power in the house. Then you disconnected this cord and plugged it into an outside source when at the campground with hookups.

I don't see a receptacle for the cord in the Jayco. The cord is just laying in the storage box, waiting to be plugged into an outside source, yet the house lights work when the battery switch is on.

Can someone explain the difference in the setup?

In your ITASCA you probably had to move the cord to go from generator to shore power. The GRANITE RIDGE has an automatic transfer switch which will take care of that. As to the inside lights, they are 12 volt so they will run off the house battery until you plug in then the converter takes over, as well as recharges the battery.

Thanks. That makes perfect sense, now.
