Did you cycle the inverter breaker in the main breaker box?
At this point youíve confirmed the charger setting on the Silverleaf panel are set correctly. You need to use you meter at the inverter/charger and confirm 120V AC input and verify the 12V output. Based on the Silverleaf display, the unit is not outputting the correct voltage. This could mean a bad charger or somehow it got misconfigured. Unfortunately the inverters donít ship with a Xantrex control panel so troubleshooting the charger settings is limited.
You may need to run the engine and hold the battery boost button in order to charge you house batteries. You could also use a automotive battery charger.
With the engine running the the batteries are charging as normal. I know this may be a stupid question but does that mean it is more of a generator amperage production issue or could still be the inverter/charger? I did check the 30 amp breaker for the inverter and it did not seem to be the issue.
Can anyone tell me what the leg1/leg2 amp should be in the attached picture? This was took with both the generator and engine running.
Leg 1 & leg 2 amps are dependent on what you have running on 120 volts AC. In the photo, I would say you have maybe the fridge or something little, no air conditioners running or anything big. With both the engine and the generator running there is no way I know of the tell which is charging your batteries. The lightning bolt tells me that the charge bridge solenoid is engaged.

I recently had issues with my xantrax sw3000. It would flakeout a start inverting even on shore power. When this happened it was not charging the battery or providing power to inverted circuits.
You can try turning off the breaker and disconnecting the 12 volt positive lead for an hour to let it loose its memory.
Then reconnect the 12 volt lead, sparks are expected.
Go back in and turn the breaker back on an then check silver leaf.
This worked for me for a few days the it stopped passing 110 thru when not inverting.
Talked to xantrax, they have known issues with the relays sticking on the boards.... new in verter on order, will se d old one back for repair so i have a spare.
In the mean time i tied the 110 feed and 110 out wires together bypassing the inverter so we have power to all the house circuits.
I am using a battery charger to maintain the batteries while the inverter is out
