Verify that the house battery bank is connected to house distribution panel.
What happens if you disconnect the chassis battery? Will the generator start?
Do you know how your inverter 120vac side wiring is configured and understand how it operates in various modes? If so, have you checked this operation?
If you turn the inverter off, do you loose power to circuits like microwave and entertainment receptacles? Have you checked all circuit breakers? If all circuit breakers are good and you loose power, then your inverter is not passing thru the current or charging your battery bank. When the inverter is turned on, it is using your battery bank to in fact make the 120vac you are using. The generator is producing 12vdc giving you the lights and voltage to battery bank to invert 120vac power for TV, satellite receiver and such.
