Marine batteries not powering the inverter

There was no inside power in my 2000 Itasca Sunflyer and the inverter had a red and green light on. I replaced both marine batteries and still no power inside and the inverter shows no lights. Someone checked to see if the batteries were good and they are. The problem seems to be in the solenoid. There is current coming in but none going out to the inverter. Could the batteries be hooked up wrong or do I just need a new solenoid? Where can I get a diagram showing the right configuration for the marine batteries? The solenoid says coach solenoid to inverter. Where would I find the part number for it? Thank You.

We can help you with the connections if you tell us how many and what voltages are your batteries.

Hi daogden,
Welcome to iRV2. If there is no power going to inverter how can the inverter have red and green lights on? Are you connected to shore power and still have no power in the coach?

When not connected to shore power, is there power to the inverter? Measure at the incoming connections of the inverter. Power into the inverter (no shore power) but no power out = a rest button needs to be found an pressed or a bad inverter.

We need a bit more information to help you.
