Xantrex Inverter Won't Turn On

I'm dry camping and tried to turn on the inverter and am not getting power. I have the Xantrex XM10. It worked fine 5 weeks ago I was able to use all of the AC plugs when I was hooked to shore power several days ago. All of the AC plug receptacles work when the generator is on. The GFCI plug on the inverter and the 15 amp button appear to be okay. I plugged/unplugged the cable from behind the remote panel and still no power at the remote panel. My question is if the inverter is bad, why would the plugs work with the gennie on in the TV. Or, could I have a bad remote panel? It plugs into some type of inline coupler.

In one of the compartments there's a large flat fuse. Check continuity across the fuse.
It will look like this: https://theinverterstore.com/product...RoCE9sQAvD_BwE

When I owned a Winne Tour, the inverter took a dump and the shore power still worked

Call Xantrex tech support with your problem. They are very helpful. My Xantrex RS2000 is obsolete, yet a technician explained how to correct my problem, even emailed me a copy of the service technical manual.

Found the problem!! No 12volt to the inverter as the battery cable terminal to the inverter circuit breaker in the battery compartment had snapped off! When I opened the compartment to look for a breaker/fuse, I saw the cable broken and pulled away. I wouldn't have known the breaker was for the inverter otherwise.

Thanks again to all for your quick responses. I just wish that Winnebago had placed the inverter in a more accessible location to troubleshoot this problem on the road!
