I have the same issue with my'15 320RS. Works on shore power but not off batteries or when connected to tow vehicle.

Inverter has a fuse, check that. Also, most have a "pass through" when hooked to shore power, allowing 120v to pass through the inverter, since it's not needed to "invert" on that circuit, while on shore power. Sounds like an issue with either the GFIC, or fuse on the 12v side. Just a hunch.

There is a lot of confusion on this forum regarding converters and inverters. While there are inverters that actually have a "pass through" mode, some units use inverters that do not offer this function. Xantrex offers both and a pass through unit in effect has an integral transfer switch...hence the pass through mode. FR uses Xantrex ProSine and ProWatt units. ProSine has a pass through (yellow unit) and ProWatt doesn't (black unit.) Georgetown uses ProWatt...no fuse, no pass through and a separate transfer switch.

Be sure the "Battery Control" is in the connect position. Also, as previously noted, the Xantrex has a reset on the GFCI outlet that controls the refrigerator. I found my finger didn't push the button in far enough to reset it. But it worked with the end of my pen.

inverter

check that all battery connections are tight. Mine worked on shore and generator but did not work with inverter. The ground battery cable was not tight and did not make good connection. Tighten the ground and all works great

My bet is on the GFI since the remote switch is glowing green which indicates that the inverter is powered.

inverter

Like I stated mine showed all green BUT ground cable from battery not holding strong direct contact. Need to be cleaned and tighten .

I am sure it would depend on the inverter. A Xantrex would go into fault mode if the battery voltage dropped below acceptable and a loose ground would do that.
