T​hat is usually a problem with the battery disconnect solenoid switch. Did you remember to hit that again? The solenoid reverts to the store position when power is removed. If you don't have a battery disconnect solenoid, then the next most likely source of that problem is in the converter or the shortstop breaker between the batteries and the converter. Is this an older style Magnetek load center?
