Inverter Location

Hi,
We have a 2015 Georgetown XL 360. Our inverter is not working. The inverter light will not come on and the refrigerator does not run when we are not on shore power.

We blew the fuse for our slides and blew the breaker for our leveling system the other day and I think this happened at the same time. I can locate the converter and the automatic transfer switch but does anyone know where the inverter is?


Thanks in advance!

Thanks Swamprat, I'm confused. In that same compartment there in a converter and a switch box. I was under the impression there is also an inverter aboard. Is it the same thing?

My inverter is mounted right across from the transfer switch

You are referring to the converter. On my coach it too is located in the rear power bay on the driver's side. The reefer's inverter is not located there. You will find in very near the reefer, perhaps in the bay below the reefer or in some cabinetry below or adjacent to the reefer. Usually they are located much closer to the batteries, which on my coach are a full 23 feet forward of the converter.

If the green light won't come on that means that you probably blew the fuse to the inverter as well.

A previous poster looking for the inverter on a 360 wrote this "FOUND IT, with help of the service department. It is located on driver side above the propane tank there is a plastic screw cape that you take out and can access the ground fault. To get full access must remove screws and take out panel. Lots of more usable space in that area."

Makes 12 volts DC from 110 volts AC. It runs all of your 12 volt stuff (lights, radio, pumps, etc) when you are connected to shore power. It also charges your coach and chassis battery when connected to shore power or when running the generator.

"ScottBrownstein :

Thank so much for this information. I found the inverter exactly where the previous poster found his. There is a panel above the propane tank that I removed to get better access to the inverter. Unfortunately there is no power going to it so I now have to figure out what is causing that. I don't know if it's a breaker or fuse or exactly what the problem is.

If anyone knows the secret, please don't hesitate to enlighten me.
Thanks again!
