Xantrex Pro Inverter

We have owned our 31FK for about 18 months and I am sure there is still many things about it that I donít know about it. But, in our 31FK, we have a Xantrex Pro inverter that came with the motorhome. The problem is I have absolutely no idea what the hell it does or how to use it. Can anyone provide any useful information for me?
I have tried to attach an image of it below.

It will run the front TV while boondocking and probably rear TV too.

Your inverter can supply 120-volt alternating current (AC) to select circuits in your motorhome when you are not plugged into shore power or running the generator. It "inverts" 12-volts direct current (DC) from your house battery or batteries into 120-volt AC. It likely can power your main TV and possibly a second TV if you have one. I am unsure if in your model the microwave is on the inverter circuits. In my Seneca it does indeed power 2 of my 3 TVs and my microwave. My outside TV is not on the inverter circuits.

You should be able to find out what items are on the inverter circuits, just be unplugged (and not running generator) and turn it on to see what items still have AC power.

Thank you Grumpy, 2008 Seneca and Robbbyr. Thatís what I thought it would do but I had not located the connected outlets because it is rare for us to use our tvís. I will take a look tomorrow. I appreciate the info on the voltage limits too, I was not aware of that. Thank you all again.

On my MV, the only outlet that the inverter is wired to is the one for the front TV. This outlet is disabled on engine start/run unless you've modified the outlet to bypass this inconvenience.

I have a 2016 31FK so can share some specifics. The inverter powers only the socket behind the big TV. The bedroom TV is not powered and no other outlets are either.

It's only a 1000 watt inverter so you can't plug in a toaster oven (you wouldn't want to anyway.)

There's a safety relay that powers that outlet down when the coach is on. To make sure you're not watching TV and driving. Should you ever want to change that, the procedure is easy and we can help.

The display can show you some useful info. I usually leave it as you have it - showing the charge flowing into the battery.

Finally you can Google the make and model and download a PDF copy of the manual.

The inverter in our Jayco is located directly below the rear TV and we found it had extra standard outlets available on the opposite side of where the hard wiring was located connected to the front TV. So we simply ran an extension cord up the back of the cabinets and to the rear TV.
