Inverter

On the road needing some input. I changed all of the house batteries and now the inverter will not turn on, per the panel above the entry door. I feel confident I got all of the wiring correct. 2014 DS 3736. First, anyone know where the inverter is located? With previous coaches I could check the inverter and actually turn it on with that power button, but I canít even find the inverter to start there. Any other thoughts would be much appreciated. The magnum wire is attached where it was on the previous battery set.
I suppose I could have pushed a series buttons on the panel above the door but I donít think so.
Any thoughts?

The inverter is usually mounted up between the chassis rails. You need to crawl in to the basement on your back and look up. It is probably in the 1st or 2nd bay at the front.

Inverter is in the bay adjacent to the battery bay ceiling mounted. Make sure inverter is ON at the control up front in the coach of course and review your settings. It may have reset.

Thanks
I canít get it to turn on up front which is why I am hoping there is a reset/power button on the inverter to reset

There is also a LARGE fuse in the inverter supply cable , 300 amp probably , above the batteries , that maybe in trouble . Check that you only have 12 volts at the connection before you replace the fuse if required.

NOTE: If you do have the fuse blown , pick up a couple when you purchase them ; they are not available everywhere.
