For most models, the INVERTER also acts as a DC CONVERTER, supplying 12VDC for house battery charging, etc.. Sounds like you have a blown fuse or ?? on your 12VDC control Board, that is assuming your INVERTER is supplying 12VDC to it. Rook

The DC house voltage is controlled by a disconnect switch that controls a solenoid.

Look for a use/store or battery disconnect switch.

The 12 volt supply wire may have been left off the battery when the inverter battery cable was installed after the repair.

Do you think I can get a new board or will I need to change to something different?

As twin boats mentioned I have a switch, located at the passenger panel that is close to the front steps... this main switch controls a relay that powers the 12vdc in the coach...

Also my inverter is also a converter, using 2 separate systems located in the same box....

Hope this helps..
