Inverter

My inverter is turning itself on, I turn it off and a little while later it turns itself back on. I have had this 2006 Fleetwood LE for 5 years and never had this problem before. Any ideas out there?

Maybe you would like to tell us what make and model inverter you have?

Could it be set to auto and something is calling for power turning it on?

1clickaway,
You should update the signature area of your profile with info about your Rv. This info helps us to diagnose your problems.

See page 5 of 50 of your operators manual.

http://www.xantrex.com/documents/Inv...-01_rev-2).pdf

When the inverter senses a load, it will turn itself on (Inverter Idle Circuit).

My Magnum has a configuration setting where the sensing of the current load can be adjusted. Didn't read far enough in your manual to see if your's is adjustable as well, that's research you can do.

Basically what I said in post # 3 it must not have been the problem .

Mine has this feature, I've got it set low enough that the inverter stays on all the time if I turn it on. I would rather have it this way and control it manually then to have it come on randomly.

A friend of mine had installed a new updated inverter, he could not get it to come on. After reading the I determined it had the same feature as mine. The problem was there was nothing in the coach turned on that would pull a load. We plugged in a small appliance and turned it on and sure enough the inverter came on.

Read your 458 manual carefully, and also the Freedom Remote manual if you have the remote display/control option installed. The "Off" is still essentially a standby mode, and if incoming AC power is interrupted, the inverter resets and returns to On status. Sounds like you have intermittent shore (or genset) power that is causing it to change state.

The remote alters the operation a bit, so be sure to follow the right set of instructions.

http://www.xantrex.com/documents/Acc...rs%20Guide.pdf

The Auto Sense that some others mentioned really only effects the amount of power draw it takes to make it come back On. If you turn sense off, it will still come back on if power is interrupted.
