loss of power

Possum,

Please see the response from #6 in this thread. The inverter switch did the trick for me. Hopefully, it will work for you, as well.

thanks for the reply Hark 582. I checked out the inverter and found no reset switch on top of the unit. I have a 2012 berkshire with a Magnum inverter located in drivers side back door above cord to shore power. I'll check again in morning.

In my 2008 Berkshire, the inverter is located in the rear compartment on the passenger side. It is the compartment directly behind the batteries. The switch is on the top of the inverter. Good luck!

I checked the inverter this am. Sure enough I found the reset switches. There are two one for ac in and one says 12 V out. Both are set and i could hear the inverter running. They are rocker switches and I tried to turn them on and off however they won't budge. I don't want to force them and I can see the green light flashing on inverter in 2 second intervals. I also have a remote switch in bath. I pressed the on/off switch and the inverter light came on but still no power to the tv's including the one outside. Any suggestions?

ID:	21315We had power problems once, thougt it was the inverter also, ended up being the wires inside the breaker box came off te power bus. If I figure out how to insert pictures would show you a melted breaker box.

Was on way back from AK when it happened, had to have new box shipped and rv dealer in Whitehorse CA replaced it. What's a couple of weeks in Canada waiting for box. Still waiting to see if FR is going to pay or not.
