I have a 06 Allegro...
I have a 06 Allegro Phaeton, My inverter has gone into fault code, have disconnected everything, turned off both battery systems, and unplugged from power, the inverter will not shut off, cant figure where the power is coming from, can't reset inverter. Batteries seem charged, Air conditioner works, 12 volt system works, tried running generator, it wont work under that power either. Is there a reset relay that I am missing?

Hi There....

I would try removing the battery cables, the inverter may not be tied into the disconnect switch. If that does not work please get me the make and model of the inverter and what fault code you are having.

Thanks, Robert

Will need about 45 minutes to do this, will get back after trying that.

No Problem....

I will be here..... The converter should have a direct cable to the house battery. Sounds like the converter could be bad but let me know what happens and the make, model and the fault.... Robert

Also if you have not tried this.... Shut the breakers OFF, unplug from shorepower. Wait a few mins, plug back in and then turn the breakers ON....
