Talked to a knowledgeable electronics friend, bad inverter. Replaced it and seems to be working good. Still puzzled as to what happened. He said when I arced across the leads on my heating element it may have had an open switch in the inverter and discharged a capacitor and burned up something inside it. He wants to take apart and check it out. May have had an underlying problem with the Inverter. Does anybody else notice a pretty strong bump from the transfer switch when shore power is plugged in?
Hereís a funny side note: Older friend once told me,
ď You do know what they make electronic components out of?, I responded, not really what is it?, He said SMOKE, when you let all the smoke out, it wonít work anymoreĒ. 😝
