question--why invert command on Xantrex Freedom 458, 20 amp inverte/rcharger remote control panel fails to activate the four ,six volt golf cart house batteries, to convert from 12 volt DC to 110 AC in order to operate TV ect. RV 12 volt lights are working.
Mechanic this week replaced the 4 golf cart six volt house batteries--now no Invert AC service
Also, the Xantrex remote panel volt illustration is jumping numberical figures at high speed, and then will stop in a 1 and not move--a portable volt meter shows new batteries are fully charged-- Xantrex Remote Panel will not show any full charged figures we usually see like 10.8 to 13.+ In the past following replacement of six volt deep cycly batteries Iwas instructed to disconnet "remote" wire briefly from the Xantrex inverter/charger, and that reboot corrected the run a way volt indicator--not this time!

thank you for your helpful replies--correct--shop owner checked & the wires were incorrectly mounted--fixed that & now twelve volts--Xantrex still would not invert DC to AC--Shop owner called Xantrex & they went through evaluation--They said the six volt wiring error should not affect the inverting operation--sending in unit & panels for inspection

What are the voltage readings on the two wires feeding the Xantrex? Check it as close to the inverter as possible. My guess is the mechanic hooked the Xantrex wires up incorrectly and it is only getting 6 volts.

99% of the time, if a RV system worked BEFORE the batteries were replaced----the batteries were not connected correctly and/or the attaching battery cables were not connected to the correct terminals on the batteries. the 1 % is some cables were NOT connected and missed in the battery compartment. There is NO "telling" the batteries anything. The Freedom uses the connected batteries as supply power to Inverter and to also charge. Doug
