Now I'm getting ready to leave on a 3000 mike trip and I have a problem that I think again is the Invereter. When I plug into shore power, the Heart Interface does not indicate any "AC". And the Inverter has no indicator lights on the front and has no DC output. 120 VAC is being supplied to the inverter. Also when I run my generator the charging part of the Inverter does not work, just like the "Shore Power" plug. I have checked all AC voltages and everything is OK.
Has anyone ever seen this problem?
You have an Inverter/ Charger combo.
A CONverter charges batteries.
An INverter takes current from batteries and produces a/c for the tv, stereo, dvd, etc.
It sounds like you have a CONverter side problem.
Check for blown fuses before you buy a new or refurbished.
Electrical guys and gals, where are you?
