Xantrex Inverter??

We have a 2006 National Surf Side & I walked in today & the Xantrex Monitor that tells you about your AC power/Power share etc lights were ALL flashing in a circular motion! I can't find a manual to tell us what to do. Could anyone possibly help with this. We have had it hooked up to outside electrical. Also, since this is flashing, the heat won't come on, & when the heat does come on, it only blows cold air.
Any suggestions??

Two suggestions:

1. Disconnect the "Telephone " jack plug at the invertor, wait a couple of minutes and reconnect.

2. When you went to the invertor, were the panel lights flashing and showing a error? If so press the "Soft Touch" buttons and reestablish a "Charge" condition.

Hope this will help.

Fred, You are awesome!! Thank you so much! I unhooked the panel, & unplugged the phone line for a few seconds, plugged it back in & it is now working fine. Now, on to my next problem, which is why furnace isn't blowing HOT air. It only clicks on for a minute, then shuts back off.....uggggg! lol
Thank you again for your help!

Sherry, I would start a new thread for your furnace. Describe what is happening, such as the fan comes on, I hear the ignition click, it lites, but won't stay lit, or what is happening.

Check your coach info from Atwood Mobile Furnace info, possibly there is a troubleshooting chart in the back.

The link is the info on the Atwood web site, however it lacks much troubleshooting info, I think they want to keep the RV techs in business.

Mine did the same thing, took it to the shop, and they found 5 dirt-dauber mud nests had been built in it. If you dont have screens on the heaters, you will have daubers. Rivrduk

The "Master Reset" for Xantrex converters: REMOVE ALL POWER SOURCES, (Disconnect from both batteries and, if it has an AC input AC (Shore/Generator) power.

Enjoy wither a hot cup of coffee, or a cold one (your choice of brews, mine is Dad's Old Fashion or A&W Diet or Coffee)

Restore power.

Just so you know.. This has fixed it for me.. ONCE. out of 3 problems

(2nd one took a replacement under warranty, 3rd time it was NOT, as it turns out, a problem with the inverter.... Had a loose connection.. I know folks often think we RVers have a few loose connections.. and we often do,, Usually in the 120 volt system.

Is your propane turned off or are you out? I second the unplugging of the "telephone" line. I've had to do that several times as well.

Well, it's a bit embarrassing to post, but I was so distracted by the invertor, I thought I had so many problems, I didn't even THINK to check the propane! Yes, we were completely out! So, now we have fixed ALL our RV problems! lol....
At least for the moment! Thank you again friends! Happy RVing.....

I know just how you feel, I let my emotions get the best of me from time to time, really cramps logical thinking.

Have fun, enjoy your travels.
