Hi Tom,

Maybe you could give some more information. I usually look at the information on our inverters panel that is located in the front of the coach above the passenger seat. We also have a small computer monitor /Silverleaf that I don't think you have.

This you first post. Did you just buy the coach? When was the last time the batteries took a charge from shore power or being plugged in?

The phone line is the communication cable from the inverter/charger to a remote panel (somewhere in the coach).

Here is the manual for the Freedom 20, look at page 29 for a picture of what the remote panel looks like. There is a troubleshooting section as well.

Xantrex is the manufacturer of the inverter.

Welcome Tom!

Regarding the phone line you asked about, does it look like a phone line (RJ9 connector) or a network cable (RJ45)? Xantrex uses the smaller RJ9 type connector for the battery temp sensor (BTS) and the larger RJ45 network type connector as a communication cable between their various optional controls such as Automatic Generator Start (AGS) or the optional System Control Panel (SCP). By the way, do not use a computer network cable in place of the Xantrex network cable as they are not pinned out in the same way. I've found the tech support people at Xantrex (800) 670-0707 to be helpful although I've probably only talked to them 2 or 3 times. Have fun!

Looks like I misspoke. I looked up the Freedom 20 on the Xantrex website and it is very different from my Freedom SW3012. It appears there is a simplified remote control panel and it connects with the smaller RJ9 phone type connector. I would download the manual and call Xantrex after studying it over a little.
