The inverter supplies AC power when there is none from another source, but only to a limited number of outlets. Be sure that this isn't one of the models where you have to take the shore cord and plug it into the genset outlet down there. I don't recall without looking when they went to an automatic tranfer switch on these. When I get home for lunch I can check that for you, but I need the actual model number. That is how these are filed. And you NEVER want to run the genset at the same time as being connected to shore power! That can damage the transfer switch if you have one. Only one source of AC power can be used at any one time.
So what happens to the AC power when you run off just the shore cord or the genset? What is the make and model of your inverter?
O.K...........but, what happens with the AC circuits when you use another AC source? Does everything else work or not?
Good...........thanks for letting me know.
