That doesn't sound right. I think you need to draw up your own wiring diagram, tracing out all the positive wires (especially #2 or heavier) and compare it to Dale's. My coach's wiring does not conform exactly to that diagram either. For one thing, that diagram doesn't show the big solenoid (unless it's the octagonally-topped thing in the upper right) with the chassis and house batteries connected to it. And I don't see anything called a megafuse; the big one in the back corner of the compartment is the house fuse.

You said Inverter problem.. I suspect this inverter is an "Inverter/Charger with AC Pass Through" from what you said.

And.. one of the following conditions exists,, In sequence order

Bad outlet (The one the rig is plugged into) This includes tripped breaker or GFCI, NO power to the outlet)
Bad plug
Bad power cord
Bad Automatic transfer switch
Bad wire
Bad or tripped main breaker in breaker box
Bad or tripped INVERTER breaker in breaker box
Bad wire
Then, finally, after all that, we come to bad inverter.

Home is where I park it!
