Did the generator stop too? If the generator is running check the breaker on it.

Yep,shut the generator off and reset the breakers on it. If that does not work, find your magnum converter charger and reset those breakers.

Even on generator you can overload it. For example, if running both AC's, refer, hot water heater, and then the microwave you can trip the generator breakers. Switch the refer to propane and the hot water heater too if running AC's full tilt. And if it is really hot set the Fans on the AC's to fast versus Auto for maximum cooling effect.

Do you have a transfer switch? That may have taken a dump.

+1 Check the transfer switch and see if you've got melted wires inside. Make sure to disconnect shore power and turn off the generator and inverter before you take off the cover.

There was a bad set of Intellitec transfer switches used by Monaco and other manufacturers over a couple of years that have never been recalled by the manufacturer, but most RV builders have recalled and replaced for their owners. The post-bankruptcy Monaco has recalled and paid to repair but for us pre-bankruptcy Monaco owners with the same transfer switch we're on our own.

If you don't have an extended warranty the cost might be $250 - 300 plus labor, assuming nothing else is damaged.

Isn't there a phone or Cat 5 type cable that also has to be removed and reinstalled for a hard reset? Not sure but seems to be I remember reading that.

Right next to the door in front there are several switches, and one of them cuts all power in the motorhome.

Take a look at it.

Thanks for Your suggestions,
It transpired that the Magnum-2800 Inverter had Died, after a little negotiation My supplier sauced a Heart Freedom 15 to replace it and All is back to normal, mind You I now find out its not only just over 50% of the Magnums 2800W but its a Re-Conditioned-Unit, anyone got any idea of how Old this Freedom-15 may be its a Black-Box One and the newer ones appear to be White, are Heart-Inverters of the same Quality as The Magnum Brand, My supplier says Monaco used Heart but cutting back a few years ago they found Magnum cheaper to purchase True or False ?
Well Guys time to Shower and get some Work done-as We say here in UK "No Rest for the Wicked" only a Saying BFN :- By for Now

Our coach left the factory with a Heart Freedom 25 inverter/charger. It has been trouble free all these years (knock on wood).

When I search on the internet, it seems that the Heart Freedom inverters and inverter/chargers are still being sold today.

One thing that confuses me is how you can lose all AC power because the inverter failed. Not all of the AC power in a motorhome comes from the inverter. A lot comes direct from either the generator or the power pedestal.

Hi Mike,
Thanks for Your Help and Everyone-Else for that matter, on the subject of "All Power-Loss" - it maybe the way things are setup here in the UK remember We are on 240v against Your 110v, as I understand it Everything has to be converted into 240v and My supplier says by doing that it then goes through the inverter, well that's how they explained it to Me, does that make any sense ? remember over Here there's a book called Bull-**** if it sounds Ok and it helps to confuse the Customer They Use It, so it could be a paragraph they used out of that Book.
On the subject of the "Stink" from the Sink 'Hay that sounds Good, for 6am' I'm following up on the 2-Suggestions proposed by You Guys and I'll keep You informed When We've been able to remove Our "Gas Masks" HeHe

All the Best for now BRIAN "The Muppet" England-UK
