I could not figure it out, I took the battery cables loose and charged the battery's with a 40amp charger and when I hooked the battery's back up I still got a error code. That's when I started to look and all four batteries were not hooked up, not to gather anyway.

I hooked the batteries up right and the inverter works. You might Google the 12 volt side of life, I think that's it, anyway it's just like the diagram says on the camper. If the batteries are hooked up in series but not parallel then you have two 12 volt batteries, when hooked up in parallel you have one 12 volt battery with four six volt batteries. Tom Johnson told me first to look behind the bulkhead and disconnect the red wire and leave it off for ten seconds and then connect the red wire back and the inverter would reset itself but it would not because without the batteries being hooked up in parallel the series the inverter was hooked up to was not being charged. When everything is hooked up right what you really have is one big 12 volt battery

One important thing when you hook the series up in parallel to make 12 volt hook up the hot or plus side first then the negative side, that way no sparks or short

I would put a cut-off switch:
Battery -> inverter
Battery -> rv power distribution system
Solar Panels -> Charge Controller

This would eliminate any possible damage while making connections

I thought the batteries had got to weak and I had a nice battery charger that I could hook them up too and put life back in the batteries.
