Another inverter question...

I've tried searching everywhere for the my answer, and although I have learned a ton, I don't think I came across my answer.

I have a 2009 International 25fb that was in near mint condition when we bought it last year. We prolly camped in it 15 nights last summer without any problems. However, as silly as it may seem, I am not sure if I have an inverter or not. I have looked under the queen bed in the front on street side and I do see an electrical component (which I've included pictures of) which makes me think I have an inverter. However, I do not have any outlets that have the blue sticker indicating 'inverter outlet'. Some outlets have a sticker indicating 'Circuit Breaker GFCI Protected', but nothing about inverter. I also do not see anywhere in the galley to turn on or off the inverter. I'm pretty sure every campground we stayed in had 30 amp service and I do not remember having any issues with any of the outlets not working. I also looked through every document and owners manual, which the previous owner was very meticulous about, and I found nothing on an inverter. I also found the original Specs Sheet from the dealer and found nothing listed about an inverter. Thoughts?

2009’s did not come with an inverter from the factory.

One would have had to install an after market unit in a custom fashion (I did this on my 2008).

Sorry to say that there Is no inverter in your pictures.

Thanks. Could you make out what that was in the pictures? It was in the exact spot everyone said their inverter was. And with no inverter, every outlet gets juice straight from the battery?

Your first picture is the battery disconnect switch. It clicks when you press the button near your door to isolate your batteries.

The second picture shows your 12v bus bar, where a bunch of 12v connections are made for your lights, etc.

The 3rd picture of the black box is where your trailer lights and brakes are wired.

Without an inverter, no outlets will have juice if you are not plugged into shore power. If you are not plugged in only 12v items will function, such as your lights.

No inverter = no microwave, no TV, etc when you are not plugged in.
