Since Airstreams do not come with inverter 'prewire' like they do with solar prewire (as useless as it is), only the dealer knows how they ran the 120VAC circuit from the inverter and to which outlets.

In the factory inverter installation, there is a separate circuit usually of 3-4 outlets that are dedicated 'inverter' circuits and are marked with blue stickers as such. Since there is no transfer function used by Airstream when on shore power, so there will be duplicate outlets usually located right next to your original outlets.

I would have the dealer show you which outlets (if any) they wired directly to that inverter.

If the wire circuit (most dealers and Airstream would use Romex for this purpose) can be found connected to the inverter, find a good electrical person that has the proper tools to trace this wire from the inverter out towards the outlets. They might be able to find where that circuit goes (this is a last resort incase your dealer 'can't remember' where they ran the outlets.....if they actually ran any in the first place!!!

But if it has dedicated plugs why do all of them have power when plugged to shore power......

The factory inverter installation 120Vac outlets are not operational unless the inverter is manually turned on which then draws power from the installed battery(s) to energize the two to four outlets usually associated with a DVD player and television(s).
