Don't you have one of these if you have the Xantrex inverter
We have the magnum 600 w inverter. The panel is the basic panel that shows status of battery's and tank levels with little green and red lights. There is a remote data port on the inverter that has nothing plugged into it.

And if we turned ours off we would not have power to most of the coach, yes even hooked to shore power. That is the way ours was wired from the factory.
Different setup I guess.

I know nothing about your inverter. However, mine inverts when the shore power is unplugged and becomes a battery charger when plugged in to shore power. Because of that I have a good reason to leave it on. It will charge both house and engine banks unless I have the switch turned off to one of the banks. It will also Float when the batteries are fully charged. I turn it off when it is in the storage facility with no shore power available as it will continue to attemp to invert (there is always something that wants 110V such as a clock) and eventually run down the batteries.

I turn on my inverter only when we're traveling or stopped for short periods of time when we don't need the generator. I use it to power the fridge when traveling in order to save propane.
