my berkshire motorhome came with a magnum energy 1200 watt inverter/charger.last night here in arkansas we had a bad thunderstorm,the coach was hooked up to shore power,not thinking i just left it all on,during the night we lost power and this morning i went out thinking ok i can start the gen up and the family can just wait out the outage till entergy co get the power up .well when i start the gen up it wouldn't read on the inverter indicator, as it normally does but the ac units would start up. if i hit the inverter (ON) the tv will come on,etc, but the system does not show the ac power in. and its draining the batteries to. is there anyone who can give any advice on this? also when the shore power came up it still don't show the ac in...

Do you have surge protection on your shore power? You might have had a surge and popped a breaker. Hopefully nothing worse than that. I invested in a Frank's Electronics system for my Georgetown 370XL. So far I've been very happy with it.
