+1. My power outlets only work if plugged into shore power.

Your inverter is shut off.
or you need to start the generator.
If you plan on making coffee, you had better start the generator

According to the 2016 manual...to run a residential fridge.

The OM doesn't say anything about all the outlets being powered by the inverter.

But I don't have a redhawk to know first hand.

The only outlet that works on the INVERTER is the television. The others only work on shore power or generator.

You are correct sir, only the TV outlet works with the inverter with my 2014 Greyhawk.
Doesn't help much for my Cpap machine in the bedroom.
My dealer said it works on all the outlets, shows you how much he knew. Spent about
two hours monkeying around trying to figure out why I had no power, until I followed this thread.
Thanks to Grumpy for pointing this out.

Yes, spoke to a Jayco factory rep last month at an RV show questioning why only single outlet (overhead TV) is wired to inverter. With inverter able to handle 1000w on our 2015, it should be wired to at least one mid-coach outlet and best-case, and additional one in bedroom I would think. He said they are aware of this shortcoming and may change for future.

LOL, We had to run an extension cord from the TV outlet to the sink area, so that the crock pot and coffee maker could be running while we are driving. We put them in the sink and run them off the inverter, so dinner is ready when we get to the campground!
