No power to the microwave so checked the RS2000 system panel and the inverter is enabled. Checked the breakers on the main and sub electrical panel and they're all good. Went to the basement and the inverter button is disabled (no light) so I enabled and now I've got power to the microwave. Now I'm at the system panel and I disable the inverter from that panel and I've still got power to the microwave (genset running). I shut off the genset and have power to the microwave from the inverter now.


So this is what I wrote after my last trip to the MH and what I found. Note that the inverter was enabled at the panel but the inverter itself was not. I did not have genset power to the microwave until I enabled the inverter in the basement.

This trip I disabled the inverter in the basement and at the system panel, fired up the genset, and guess what, now I've got power to the microwave. While I
was disabling the inverter I also pressed the reset button. So now I have AC
power through the inverter with it being disabled in both places.

Two things were different this time: the system panel enable button was off and I pressed the reset button on the inverter in the basement. I did both those prior to starting the genset. Now the inverter is acting like I expect.

I think the issue is resolved for now. I don't know how I would have solved this without you guys helping me. I have learned a ton and hope these notes will help someone else along the way. Thanks guys!!!!!

I thought we had been through an inverter repair on this coach just recently? I read and respond to so many of these type topics, sometimes I get one confused with another; especially if it has been an ongoing thread for days and weeks. If the inverter was removed, repaired and re-installed, a hard reset was done then. However, John is correct; trying a hard reset is worth a try again. If you find that this is a continuing problem contact the repair company and see if they will redo or at least repair the inverter with no labor charges.

No, this just seemed to happen before since it's been going on for awhile now. Takes awhile for things to seep into this old noggin. Thanks for the help RV Wizard.
