Do I need an inverter to enjoy the RV Lifestyle?

We’re back with another question from an RV Country friend, and another answer from our Service Manager, Hank.

Today's question is:“Do fifth-wheel travel trailers have inverters? If they do not, then I need one with a generator, right?”

Hank tells us that “most fifth-wheel trailers do not have inverters, and only special order trailers come with a generator. However, most can have a generator or inverter installed, but you will not need an inverter if you have a generator.

An inverter takes the place of a generator if you are dry camping (parking anywhere without or with limited amenities) and want to watch TV or make coffee without starting the generator because of noise or fumes. The inverter will take the 12 volt from your battery and convert it to 120 volts.” Remember, if you are going to use a generator, you must also be sure and have a working carbon-monoxide detector installed.

f you are still unsure about using a generator or inverter, you can give our service department a call at (800-959-6485) and speak to any of our friendly service advisors, they’re there to assist! Or you can make an appointment to come in to RV Country and see us. We always love visiting with friends and we'd be happy to help!

Our service department in Fresno is open Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. and closed Saturday and Sunday.
