To start I would go to the inverter and shut it off then turn it back on, make sure any breakers on the inverter are not tripped. Sometimes shutting the inverter down and turning it back ON will reset the board inside the inverter. IF it still is not inverting then it sounds like the inverter is not working and may need to be replaced. Click HERE for some information on this inverter see page 7 for invert mode.....

IF you have more questions or concerns please feel free to contact me... Robert

turned it off and on, the charging side works, are there any fuses inside the inverter or fuse, relays that can be checked before replacement of the unit?
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 5 years ago

NO fuses inside the inverter, the only fuse involved is on the charge line between the battery. IT should be inverting. Many RV shops will not repair these they normally get sent in or replaced.

IF you are satisfied with my efforts please feel free to select a STAR rating on the page.... Robert
