Inverter questions?

Our 2007 17b is the first trailer we have had with power...so if I have the battery out and have the shore power connected...will the ac power be converted and will the lights, pump, etc, work? Or does the battery need to be connected for shore power to run through it? (Really sticking my ignorance out here)

Inverter questions?

Yes everything should work as normal.
The battery if connected will charge.

Just for clarification it is the converter (within the WFCO power center) that is taking 120V AC and can simultaneously power 12V items, charge the battery and of course the unit also provides 120V AC directly to appliances/ outlets. If the battery is removed the trailer 12V items should still operate directly from the converter. You can test this by throwing your 12V isolation switch while plugged in. Also the 12V items should also run if you are plugged into your tow vehicle with ignition on. An inverter takes 12V DC from the battery and inverts it to 120V AC which is not what you are referring to.
