Question Confused with Inverter

I just changed the Battery in my 2018 Salem Hemisphere TT and when i switch from shore power to Battery power the Inverter shows output going to the Trailer but shows nothing on the Input Screen. According to the manual it should show the Voltage there

Which inverter do you have?
Are you getting 120 volt power to the fridge and receptacles like you'd expect to when off shore power?

Thanks for your quick reply. I have a Freedom X Sine Wave Inverter. It appears i am the Fridge turns on when off shore power. The Inverter shows 119 vac on the display for output but nothing for input .

Have you cycled through all the displays using the ^ (up) button?
There are two voltage displays on the unit. The default display is VAC in & VAC out. the third display page (IIRC) is VDC in and VAC out.

Thanks Bama Rambler. When I toggle through it does show 12.9 v input on one of the screens. I guess it must be working ok then

Sounds like it's working as intended. It would be nice if the display switched to battery voltage automatically when you lose shore power, but I guess they thought that it would confuse people.
