AC In and Fault lights on

Left my 01 tradewinds plugged in on shore power for about 3 weeks with refrigerator on. Picked it up today and the refrigerator showed running on gas. Checked shore power source and it is good. Unplugged and tried to start generator but wouldn't turn over. Hit Invert button and the red AC In and Fault lights come on. These also are on after I try to fire generator.
I fear the inverter is fried, but is there any way to reset it? Also a possibility that one or more of my coach batteries may be drained, but that shouldn't matter if it is on shore power, right??

Yes, it matters. Shore power only supplies 12 VDC to charge your house batteries and other 12 VDC requirements if your Inverter works. And .....if your Inverter is bad and your house Battery Bank is dead .....you have no 12 VDC . Hence, all components that require 12 volts will not work, Rook
When you get a chance to dance, or sit this one out......I hope you DANCE!
