Confused here. What EMS? What inverter? Do you have documentation on the EMS or inverter? More specifics would help.

The inverter is a magnum energy charger inverter with screen. I keep blowing the circuit at my plug.the EMS is in the rear of my MH . I tried the generater but it keeps cutting out and shore power I keep blowing the breaker.

I am back to see if I can solve my problem. I narrowed down to the breaker or the charger inverter. I am able to run the Genny with the inverter breaker off as so as I switch it back on the Genny wants to shut off. Any ideas out there. Thanks

After 5 hours I was able to figure out the problem it was a exposed wire on the drivers side slide.but I lost the screen on the charger inverter on the panel oh well at least is not blowing the breaker and no fault any more. Thanks

Thanks for letting us know what the problem was. Maybe it will help next time this sort of thing occurs.

Leary54, great job in troubleshooting. I'm in awe of your expertise! For those of you asking, EMS probably means energy management system. Leary54 will correct me if I'm wrong.

What did that exposed wire go to? Must be the slide had some 120v stuff in it, right?

R green 45 you are right about EMS. The wires are 120. There are two outlets in that slide. Thanks for the compliment.
