inverter for 2009 sunset trails travel trailer

I don't know if my travel trailer has an inverter to convert power to DC power. Trailer is a 2009 sunset trails. Just bought it and trying to figure things out. Lights didn't work unless hooked up to my truck.

Check the battery make certain that it is good. Check the hook ups on the battery make certain that they are hooked up right. remeber the positive is the ground on Travel Trailers

The big white wire goes to the negative terminal the other two go to the positive terminal. I think you are right Lloyd

pos (+)is always pos.and goes thru the small 2 post fuse and into the trailer to the converter.... neg (-) goes to the frame .
Your trailer has a converter (110v to 12v),probably no inverter (12v to 110v).
Make sure the fuses on the converter are all good ,that includes the 2 - 30 a fuses that are hard to see at first. And the circuit breakers are all on.
You may also have a battery dis-connect somewhere.

Thank you. I'll do that. The sales person told me that battery is new. I know it doesn't mean that they actually did it.
