On a Roadtrek, at least on the Chevies and probably the others, of that vintage, you will have all the outlets work when on shore power or generator, but only 2 or 3 will work when on 12v power, and then only if the inverter is on. None of the others will ever work on 12v power. It is very possible that yours is working the way it should. Your manual should tell you which outlets are inverter powered.

The outlets you list sound like ones that would not be on the inverter circuit.

In our 07 190P the outlets that would run off the inverter were the audio cabinet by the sink, the kitchen outlet and the outlet on the armoire right behind the driver's seat. If those don't work on batteries with the inverter, then there is an inverter problem, most likely.

I think this is still the case with current production that employs the lower power inverter. The underhood generator option includes the high power inverter that powers all the receptacles.
