Inverter on my 2005 Winnebago Vectra 40' KD

The panel windows on my inverter is black. Are there any other fuse boxes besides under the bed? Is there a bus fuse?

cadillac man, is the inverter working? There is a 300amp fuse in the battery compartment that feeds the inverter.

Well Cadillac man,
First off, may I ask, exactly WHAT are "Panel windows" that you are referring to? If you're talking about the LCD screen that is in the REMOTE control panel, the panel that controls your Inverter/charger, then I would understand. Now, second, does your '05 coach still have the Dimensions 2000 watt Inverter/Charger that it came with (as all Winnes and Itasca diesels did) back then?
Third, are you getting any charging on your house batteries while plugged into shore power? Fourth, are you getting any Inverting when, you cut off shore power and turn on the Inverter to supply 120VAC? Fifth, are any of the LED lights on the perimeter of that Remote working?

The lower lcd screen on the remote panel on our 06 Journey went blank once. Turned out I had inadvertently knocked a wire loose (silver colored flat telephone style wire with telephone style quick disconnect) putting the 50 amp cord away. Reconnect and all good.
Two years later, panel was lit but no battery charging. Found a connector for same wire with a little corrosion. Replaced connector and all was well again.
Good luck
