Inverter powered outlet

We have a 36SSWS on order with residential refrigerator. Does anyone know if there any outlets in the basement that are powered by the inverter? Want to install a small refrigerator to save tracking inside for a cold one.
Thanks
Bill

I'm pretty sure that they are not on inverter but give me until later in the day and I'll kill the pedestal then check them. Right now we are doing laundry then have to run some errands...
Angus


edit: ...and that's a 1200 watt inverter which does not leave much room for more than the fridge.

Nothing would be in the basement. You would have to tap into the inverter circuit and add an outlet. As Angus said it''s only 1200 watts so you need to carefully look at the loads.

Just fridge on mine. In fact the outlet the fridge is plugged into only has one spot available probably to keep us creative types from causing issues.

You could be right. I need to find out what the fridge pulls. I assume it will have some defrost heaters in it too. Probably just better add an inverter for the beer fridge like I have now in our Eagle. Just hoping I could skip a step in the new camper set up- getting lazy I guess!

The outlets powered by the inverter have a sticker on them. At least the ones inside are marked. There are 5 or 6??? I assume yhat would be true for any in the basrment.

I think you are confused with GFI outlets.

I don’t believe I am confused. On the outlets that are powered by the inverter there is a sticker which states “Inverter Powered Outlet”. There is a thread in the General section on that very topic.

Got it. This is the first time I have heard of this in my 5 years of RVing forums. I have seen the GFI stickers.

Radar57, you are right and there are approximately 4 or more depending on whether or not you have an outdoor TV. There should be two in the bedroom, one in the cabinet above the LR TV (shown), the fridge outlet and the optional outdoor TV outlet.

That’s pretty cool. This is with the 1200 inverter? I wish my Eagle was set up this way. I just have the fridge and that’s it.

Yes, the Xantrex Freedom X, which I believe is the 1200 watt model.

Angus, did you check the outlets on each side of the bed toward the floor, they should have an inverter sticker on them.

None, Nowhere. Nadda. Zip.


Just on the GFCI protected outlet in the bathroom.


Built on a Friday.

The first 2 pics are our bedroom outlets, one on each side of the bed and the 3rd pic is the bathroom outlet which is not run off the inverter......none of the GFCI outlets run off the inverter. The pic in my previous post was the outlet above the TV.

looked closer and found the inverter stickers on the BR and LR TV's, None anywhere else, but I would not have expected them.


We never boondock (at least not planned), so it would not have occurred to me.
