Inverter outlets

We just picked up our 25 FC, after trading in our Sport 22. I have many questions. One is : the expert at the dealership told me that the outlets marked with the "Inverter" label can only be used when you're running on batteries with the inverter on. Last night, plugged in to shore power, trying to find a place to plug my laptop in for some late night work, I couldn't find anything BUT "Inverter" outlets. So I'm assuming he's wrong and when we're on shore power, the "inverter" outlets are just 110 outlets into the shore power, right?

I think that depends on the year of manufacture. I also think the newer ones are just as you stated.

I have a 2019 23CB. The plugs marked inverter will work either the trailer is plugged in shore power OR when the inverter is switched on when on battery power. The plugs not marked inverter only work on shore power

Thanks. I do wonder--for anyone with a 2020 25' FC RB... are there any non-inverter outlets in the front of the trailer?

At least since 2017 the inverters have been pass-through so the inverter-supplied outlets work with shore power OR inverter power. On my '17 26U, the 2 plugs below the dinette, the one at the TV and the hidden one up in the DVD player cabinet are all inverter-supplied, as is the one by the bedroom TV in the back.
