Found the circuit breakers and pressed reset. Still no output from inverter. Remote switch checks good per ohmmeter. Have 12.7vdc going to inverter. All fuses I can find are good. I guess next step is to unmount inverter so I can get to the back of it and check vdc input.

Because the inverter IS passing vac when hooked to shore power, odds are the vdc input is good but will check anyway. It's beginning y look like the inverter has failed internally. Suggestions for a replacement?

I have a larger Demensions inverter (12/2000) that failed in October. I called Demensions and described the problem to the tech. He confirmed it was bad and offered to rebuild that one or sell me a new one. I sent it back to be rebuilt. The cost for the rebuild was 1/3 the cost of a new one. Turn around time was about two weeks. I'd suggest you give demensions a call.
