Xantrex 1500 issue

I have a 2003 Holiday Rambler with a Xantrex Inverter/converter and Intellitec smart EMS. The AC power #1 breaker on the front of the unit seems to be supplying power to the Air conditioners, as it should, but the #2 breaker is not supplying power to the microwave, refrig., and AC receptacles. Recently, an arc blew the .25 amp fuse, which I replaced, and since the batteries were not holding a charge, I replaced them. Does anyone have a solution for me?

Does this the manual cover your Xantrex inverter/converter?

If so the solution to your problem may be in it.

Inverters normally only supply power to AC receptacles, TV, and Microwave. The reason for this is to keep the power drain as low as practical. Check the GFCI receptacles as one of them may have tripped and is causing your problem.

And check for a tripped breaker in the inverter itself.

Welcome to a great forum. I can't think of a better place to get it sorted out.

Are your batteries getting charged now, and if yes, how do you know?

I think it would be highly unusual for an air conditioner to be connected to any Inverter. It just takes too much power to run one off batteries.

Did you change the batteries yourself?

I would be suspect of the Intellitec smart EMS. It is very fragile when it comes to surges and shorts. You can test to see if the EMS is defective by bypassing the EMS and powering your microwave/fridge right from the breaker. If it works after the bypass you know its the EMS board. Call them, they have great tech support and can confirm your board is toast.

WARNING: Be sure to unplug all shore power, turn off all kill switches, and disconnect your inverter before you go into that AC distribution panel with the breakers.

Thanks everyone for your suggestions. I had previously been on the manual and went through the troubleshooting possibilities to no avail. I misspoke when I said the air conditioners were on the Xantrex breakers. They are not. I did test the AC input and output on the unit, and found that there was no AC output. After speaking to the folks at the Inverter Service Center, an authorized Xantrex service center, I've decided to pull the unit and send it to them in Tennessee. Has anyone had any dealings with them, and if so, was it a good or bad experience?

We took our Xantrex to Tekris Power in New Jersey. Call Chris at 732-938-4996. Awesome experience working with him.
