Xantrax won't work

I have a 2003 Safari Sahara. In the fall I noticed that I couldn't use the inverter. I took all the batteries out and tested them. The chassis batteries were OK; 2 of 4 house were dead so I replaced all 4 house batteries. I kept them charged up all winter at home. I just reinstalled them and the xantrax control panel inside won't respond at all. The "setup," "charge" and "invert" buttons do nothing. I hooked up to shore power at my house (110V) and nothing is showing up on the shore panel either and nor does any of the 110V stuff work (microwave, kitchen light etc). There is voltage at the big leads on the inverter. Any ideas? I attached a pic of the control panel. Thanks.

I had a Xantrex in my first MH and there was some sort of reset button I had to press to get it to work again. In that MH, it was near the house batteries. I sold that RV about 5-6 years ago, so unfortunately that's all I can remember off the top of my head.

I think that's what I did. When I called Thor, they had no clue and even told me a bunch of wrong stuff. Xantrex got me up and running.

I called them and they really weren't interested in helping once they found out it was made in 2003. They basically told me to buy a new one. Oh well. I did find that if I disconnect the wire on the back of the control panel and plug it back in the charge light comes on for 10 sec then shuts off.

You may have the same problem I had with the inverter blowing a fuse. It is a 200 amp fuse that you can get at most auto part stores
