Unhappy magnum inverter/charger problem!!

2013 tiffin Phaeton, the inverter, when plugged into a 50 a. source charges the batteries fine. But the inverter does not light up or turn on. Cann't find a reset on the magnum 2000 watt unit, under the coach. What am I missing, or doing wrong??? Help. the discharged Muffin Man.

The breaker on my Magnum 2000 is on the side and hard to find if you can't see it. I find mine by feel. It is a small round button that you push to reset.

First, are the input and output breakers on your main panel on? Second, make sure that the minimum trigger (or whatever they call it) amps is set to zero. Otherwise it won't turn on until there is a minimum demand.

The push buttons on the Magnum remote can and do wear out with time. I had an old remote that took up to 20-30 button pushes to turn the inverter portion ON or OFF and sometimes even that did not work.

First wake up the Magnum panel by pushing another button or the round dial. Then push and hold the inverter button and wiggle your finger tip around to activate it.
