It would probably be helpful for a little more info regarding specific RV and inverter.

Also, the users manual for your particular inverter might point you in the right direction for a solution.

Good luck.

Take care,
Stu

This is from the users manual for my Magnum ME Series Modifed Sine Wave Inverter / Charger. It is a commonly used inverter. It may, or may not, be what is installed in your Holiday Rambler.


• Green LED is flashing (x1/sec)
o Unit is in Search mode, which means load is too small for Search mode circuit detection.
 Turn on a load greater than 5 watts to bring inverter out of search, or turn off search with remote.
• Green LED flashing rapidly (flutters)
o Unit is in reset
 Perform a power or inverter reset—see Section 4.4. If fault continues, unit needs service.

4.4
Resetting the Inverter
Under some fault conditions (e.g., an internal fault), the inverter will need to be reset. Prior to performing any reset, ensure all AC power (utility, generator, shorepower) is removed from the inverter’s input.
CAUTION: If AC is connected while performing an inverter reset, damage may occur.
4.4.1 Performing an Inverter Reset

To perform an inverter reset (also known as a “soft reset”):

1. Press and hold the Power ON/OFF pushbutton (see Figure 4-1) for approximately fifteen (15) seconds until the Charging/Inverting Status LED comes on and fl ashes rapidly.

2. Once the rapid flashing has begun, release the Power ON/OFF pushbutton. The Status LED will go off after the pushbutton is released.

3. After the inverter reset is completed, press the ON/OFF pushbutton to turn the inverter on. If the inverter reset fails, you will need to perform a power reset using the procedure below. In either case, if an internal fault does not clear, the inverter will require repair at an Authorized Service Center (ASC).

Info: The Power ON/OFF pushbutton is a small momentary type switch which operates by lightly pressing and releasing. Be careful not to apply too much force when pushing or the switch might break.

Since you don't indicate the type of of coach/yr you have, and the model inverter you have, people could only speculate.

You might want to sacrifice a white chicken

Seriously, when you post a problem, the more info you give, the better the chance someone will have an answer. In this situation, we don't need to know what motor you have, the length of the coach, etc. What is needed is the coach brand, the year as a lot of stuff changes from year to year, and inverter brand.

777 gave you what happens with his Magnum but that probably won't help you. His info will apply to me but most likely not to you.

More info please

Call the manufacturer, they'll have a tech that can help.
