Rear AC receptacle only works on shore power

We have a 2013 AI EXT. lounge version. I can't get the rear AC receptacle to work unless we are plugged in. Is that how its supposed to work?

Which rear AC outlet? Some outlets are designed to work that way (not function via the inverter).

When you say 'only shore power' does that mean it does not function off of the generator?

If it does not work off of the generator you have a problem some where.

Other than that, it is probably functioning as normal.

On my 2013, I believe that the only outlets that work off of the inverter are
- the over cab outlet (TV signal boost)
- the one behind the drivers seat
- the rear TV

All of the van outlets work on generator or shore power.

In my ride, the outlet behind the drivers seat is a GFI outlet and controls some of the other outlets in the van. You might want to check to see if it is tripped. It may solve your problem.

Your layouts may be different even tho we have the same model year; it seems that the airstream crew lacks build consistency, especially when it comes to electrical.

Ooops. Just noticed you have a '13. Mine is a '12. The above should still be applicable tho.

I think you can get that socket working along with some others if you turn on the inverter.

My 2013 AI works as kaylorsan described. There is a fourth outlet powered by inverter under sink inside the galley cabinet. This is the one that Airstream uses for the refrigerator AC power for some strange reason. If you have an outlet not working check the ground fault as mentioned.

kaylorsan description is correct. The rear outlet down by the floor on the right side just in front of the couch is only on shore power OR generator just like the outside outlet.

I'm either dumb or blind or both, but is there an cig lighter accessory plug at the rear of the AI? There was in the AS trailer, but I just can't find one in the Interstate.

There's one on the psgr side rear corner next to the 110V receptacle.

Also one in the compartment over the driver by the TV antenna connection.

There's also one below the ashtray/cupholder near the floor that I didn't find right away. It is always powered whereas the ashtray one isn't.

My 2012 ext-lounge model only had the one 12v outlet in compartment above driver. I added two at end of galley and two below the rear curbside TV. It reAlly helps to have those extra 12v outlets in rear area.

I'm not with my Sprinter now, but I believe there is also a 12v outlet on the base of the driver seat (right side or front right) underneath the 'decorative flap' installed by Airstream.

Yes that's right driver seat base toward the isle. You have to lift the skirt.
