After shuting the generator off the Inverter
went in to Standby Mode. I tried everything to get it out of Stand By, nothing worked.
Called Xantrax, no help at all. Anyone
had this problem. RS2000 in 07 SE.

Mac,

The manual says, about the reset button on the inverter, "Reset button is used for several functions: to reset after a fault, to perform a power on reset, to wake the RS2000 from Power Save mode or Hibernate mode.

Is the "inverter" function enabled? When there is no shore power and the invert function is disabled, the RS2000 automatically goes into standby mode. If you add shore power (or start the generator), the RS2000 should automatically start charging. Enable the "invert" mode and turn off the shore power and the inverter should continue to provide power. If not, it has a problem. You can try pressing and holding the reset button on the inverter itself for 5 seconds.

I have tried the reset button several. Turned generator off and on. With Generator on the
surge protector shows 110 volts at the panel.
No AC is getting to the coach. Can not turn the inverter on at thr panel as the menue
with RS2000 on it never comes up. Batteries are good. Is there an inline fuse to the inverter?
On physical inverter the network light is on.
Fan not running.

My last suggestion is to pull the large (300 or 400 amp) fuse going to the inverter. Give the inverter a minute and re-install the fuse. My fuse is mounted on the wall in the battery compartment. This will totally power down the inverter. I got a good sized spark when I re-installed the fuse. No problem.

You can also remove the two network cables going into the inverter. This will leave the inverter running on its own, without the remote panel or remote gen start. See if it charges now when the AC is turned on.

Also, have you checked the circuit breakers for the inverter in the AC panel? Do you have a voltmeter? Pull the panel on the inverter where the two Romex lines connect to the inverter and make sure the inverter is seeing the AC from shore power.

If the inverter is bad, it is fairly easy to bypass the inverter at the panel and restore AC to the coach.

M&S:

It sounds like Ken hit it right on the button. I had the same problem and found the inverter was shut off at the 120 volt subpanel. Power comes into the coach via shoreline or generator, through the Surge Guard (showing power) then into the subpanel. Then it leaves the subpanel through a circuit breaker and goes to the inverter. It leaves the inverter and goes back to the other subpanel, into a circuit breaker and is distributed to the circuits that run off the inverter via several other circuit breakers.

I checked there and viola!

Thanks for all the help.
Problem ended up being the 12 Volts.
Disconnected it for 10 minutes and then everythinfg restarted.
