02 Bounder 39R inverter fuse?

Hey guys, new here.

I have a 2002 Fleetwood bounder 39R (diesel). I'm trying to locate the inverter fuse? I suspect it's bad. Ive checked voltage at the battery inputs on the inverter and I have nothing. Batteries have 12.5 and 13.2. I can't run anything off the batteries except the 12v lighting. So I don't think it's getting power.

Would anyone know where to look? I've looked all around the batteries and found nothing. I would imagine it's not going to be somewhere up front since there's two feet from the batteries to the inverter. The wiring is well hidden between the two though.

Disregard, I found it hiding behind an access panel the last owner installed by the aux batteries.

Glad you found it. Did the fuse take care of the problem ?

Won't know for a couple days, had to order one as there were none locally. I didn't want to land the two positives together just in case there is something shorting out.

I will report back when I get the new fuse.

Okay, got a new fuse today.

Not working still.

I have voltage from the positive on the inverter to the negative on any battery.

No voltage between positive and negative on the inverter itself.

No voltage between negative on inverter and positive on batteries

Found the problem today.

Previous owner installed new batteries upon pick up. He hooked them up wrong. Both were landed to positive, one on one battery one on another. So had no ground.

Works like a charm now. Wondering if it was something else humming instead of the inverter.

Another question, will my inverter not power everything? My microwave works but not my fridge. TV and some outlets work but not all. I'd like it if my fridge was able to be powered by the inverter so at night it'll run while boondocking if I run out of propane.

The size of the inverter determines how much you can run on it. Probably not large enough to run everything. Do you have a residential fridge? That will be on it. It most likely wired to some outlets like the ones near the tv's. GFI bath and kitchens. All are wired different.

Probably heard the Converter running it you were plugged into shore power.

It's a 2000w inverter.

It's a norcold 4 door fridge with ice maker. When I turn it on and select AC it beeps and says "no AC" so I'm thinking that's not on it which sucks. But the microwave is and it's right next to it. Maybe there's some way I can put that on an inverter circuit?
