Hi! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with this. I may need some additional information from you first in order to give a complete answer.

Ask Your Own RV Question

Most are mounted down by the coach batteries. About the size of a shoebox. Sounds like you need to have the batteries load tested to be sure those are not the issue. Or they may be low on water. Most batteries start to fail about 3 years old, but it can be any time and then the inverter won't function. Be sure that the batteries are "in the loop" and that the switch is in the "Use" position. Hope that points you in the right direction. Please get back to me if you need more as all follow ups are included in our one time fee. No time limit.

Thank you. I looked for an inverter by the batteries. I couldn't see anything like that. I will look again and check the battery water.

Usually black or green and white. Made by Xantrex or Magnum. Some older units are still out there, but the company was bought out by Xantrex.

One of the heavy red cables from the batteries goes right to it.

I think i found it. It was a shoebox size thing thay had a big red button. I should have taken a picture. It was by the propane tank.

A photo would be good. Attach it to your post using the paperclip icon.

Two gray covered cables and two black covered cables. Huge "+" on there an "-" on there. 3rd photo.

Ask Your Own RV Question

Did you check that big red switch to see if that is even turned on? The red "+" cable comes off that right to the inverter.

I even turned it off and back on. I opened the box behind the red knob and checked the fuzes in there. None appeared broken. I cant find the fuses for the tvs and refrigerator.

What is the make and model of the fridge? The tvs are on 120 VAC and on the inverter circuit. Did you check the reset on the inverter? And do you have or can you get a small digital multimeter so we can see if there is any power getting to the inverter? About $20 or so at most hardware stores and easy to use. This would take just a few minutes.

Ask Your Own RV Question

That fridge runs off the inverter. And that is a 12 VDC test light. You need a small digital multimeter for checking the voltage at the batteries and at the inverter. Are you plugged into shore power or running the generator? If on shore power, any adapter being used?

Ask Your Own RV Question

Did you have the batteries load tested or not? That is one thing that has to be checked here.

We are hoping to get someone out here tomorrow to take a look. That person should be able to answer all of these questions. We are on shore power, with the 50 AMP adapter. At this point, I guess we have done all we can do until we get the person out tomorrow. The box on the right in the inverter area does have a green flashing light, but that is all I can tell. It sounds like we have to get a real person looking at it since you have now reached my mechanical limit. Thanks for your help. I consider all of the information you have given worth the time and energy. Thanks and have a great rest of your day.

Are you using an adapter from 50 amps down to 30 amps on the cord? If so, you are going to lose about 1/2 of your circuits.

Ask Your Own RV Question

Please let me know what it turns out to be and get back to me if you need more tomorrow. I am around every day. And you are quite welcome!

Our shore connection is 50 AMP to 50 AMP - no adapter. And it is turned on :-)

O.K.........just checking.
