Inverter help

Just before I was going to bed last night everything connected to the inverter started to blink on and off. They would stay on for a few seconds then shut off for a few. It was late, and nothing I needed was on that curicut. This morning every thing is the same still blinking. Any body have any idea what's wrong. Jim

Hopefully you already have it fixed. The only thing I can think of is to reset the inverter, button should be on the inverter, if no go, then try turning off breakers for flashing circuits, then call the inverter company.

Are you on shore power, internal generator, or battery power only?
When the items connected to the inverter go "off", is there a beep (or other voltage alarm) coming from the inverter?

Check for a loose connection at the inverter ...

I'm running on shore power. I've tried a reset hasn't worked. Plan to make a few phone calls today. Thanks for the replies Jim

I had this problem. Long story short, it required a inverter replacement. The computer boards fail over time., and mine got worse failing almost every trip.

I had the same issue about a year ago. I also had to replace my inverter. Turns out the internal fan went out. Camping world (horrible experience) had the fan replaced and kept having issues so they replaced the entire inverter. Best of luck!

After a few phone calls and a few days I finally decided to change out my inverter. Finished that today seems like that did the trick. Jim

Jim glad you got it working. Did you use the same inverter or upgrade it?
