All inverters have a power switch. You can leave it on or off. None turn on automatic. Best to post the inverter model number for best answers.

Inverter will power only what is connected. You will need to check your RV for what works.

While I do not know about your inverter as someone said they all have an ON/OFF switch. Mine stays on all the time (or nearly so)

It is also a UPS should shore power fail

All outlets. again the answer varies rig to rig. Mine no


Home is where I park it.

1. When i stop for the day does the inverter automatically start working -Provided of course I am not hooked up to shore power?

2. Does the inverter run power to all electrical plugs like tv's lights, etc or are there designated electrical plugs that only the inverter sends power to?

thanks in advance,

Jim


What type of rig do you own?
Every setup is different. KEN


I (2-10-05) bought a 2002 F350 CC SWD PSD and a new 2003 Citation 10'8. I have been a tent camper all my life. I wanted more comfort while camping and CraterLake Ski Patrol.
It's time for more space. I purchased a 2016 Grand Design 380TH as of 10-29-2015.

That's a fine charger, but doesn't invert which turns DC into AC, the opposite of a converter that turns AC into DC.

I guess the key issue is NOT letting your house batteries get below 12 to 12.1 volts.
