2021+ Interstate 24GL, inverter upgrade attempt, mystery 110v plug

a lot of folks don't know about the 2021s have the inverter mounted under the passenger seat, it's not in the back jumpseat anymore. because the batteries are moved to the front under the seat as well.

continuing last episode of my inverter problem....

previously... the 1000w magnum died (presumably), I decided to upgrade it to a 2000w. i eye measured the space, and compared the dimension from magnum. i thought there's enough room, but i was wrong.

today I removed the seat and the inverter. i ran into a few problems.

the footprint of the 2000w is much wider, it is also taller. it's expected, but i didn't expect there's a big mess of other things inside that space.

the main battery cables are in the way, where the big grommet is. the inverter will sit directly over it. - maybe using spacers will work. i have some left over spacers from tv wall mount brackets that are perfect for this.

i attached a bunch of pictures, and added text to it to summarize the issues i ran into.

the biggest mystery is the 120v receptacle and the plug. where the hell these things go?? both are not on the inverter circuit, they both go towards the back of the coach.

i tried to power the plug with an extension from my house, nothing lights up or turn on

Found out the 110v plug is the “battery minder” for chassis battery
