Make sure you have good 12vdc. and .. On some Xantrex models (not all) there is a switch ON THE INVERTER which I call "Big Red" (it's big may or may not be red) and if it's off. it's off and I mean OFF. no power goes anywhere at all.


Home is where I park it.

Found the problem!! No 12volt to the inverter as the battery cable terminal to the inverter circuit breaker in the battery compartment had snapped off! When I opened the compartment to look for a breaker, I saw the cable broken and pulled away. I wouldn't have known the breaker was for the inverter otherwise.

Thanks again to all for your quick responses. I just wish that Winnebago had placed the inverter in a more accessible location to troubleshoot this problem on the road!

Thanks for the update!
Rigs are built for quick cheap construction and nothing for maintenance.

Snapped off?

Consider some better built cables....
