My MH has been sitting for about 7 months and today I fired her up with no problems. I have a question on the Freedom Remote Control Panel. As long as I'm plugged into shore power it is lit up showing battery state, DV Volts, DC Amps and incoming AC Breaker Amps, but when I shut down the shore power it shows nothing. Is this the way it is supposed to be? Sorry but it's been awhile since I've used her.

Check your battery voltage off the batteries.

Will NOT affect Inverter display function. The Inverter is connected DIRECT to the coach batteries as is the Display panel to the Inverter. His batteries are dead or DRY. The display will hibernate after a few minutes. But if the display goes OFF as soon as he disconnects 120 power, he has battery problems. Doug

Read Doug's post if you have not. Also run the trouble shooting in the manual.

6.3-4v per battery across one pair of battery posts,
That's 12.6 to 12.8 per pair and OK

But 6.4v. From ground to main positive
Means the batteries are dead

Main ground to main positive for the RV is 12.8 for full charge,

Reading the CORRECT Posts at the batteries should yield 12.6/8 volts. EACH 6 volt battery will read what you posted. I would say you have connected the 4 batteries incorrectly and are NOT providing 12 volts to the RV as required. Hence, your Xantrex panel does NOT read. Doug

I have a 99 Tradewinds and had a similar problem after having some service done on my unit. I found a cable had not been reconnected and had nothing showing when I got off shore power. After checking battery water and charge on each battery, check to see that the cables are on correctly and tight. If you are not sure of cable hookup, check google, utube for help. Happy travels.
