I have a Xantrex RV2012 in a 2006 Newmar Ventana motorhome. When plugged in its always searching for AC when you disconnect battery cables to reset it seems to work fine. What could be the problem.
Use a multimeter to check the input AC voltage (110-125VAC), the fuse(s) for the DC out and the voltage (12-13.8VDC). Have the batteries disconnected when doing this and check the battery voltage(s).
If your batteries have low voltage and the output is into correct range, you may have dead cells. This has been my findings on many units, which means battery replacement. Make sure your get a MARINE DEEP CELL or DEEP CYCLE battery, not a regular car battery. Clean out replace the battery terminals well when installing new ones and use the battery terminals grease that it should come with liberally for future corrosion protection.
If your input voltage does not match the voltage coming from the shore power connection, check the continuity of your power cable.
If your input voltage is in the proper range but the output voltage is not, your inverter may be faulty and in need of repair or replacement.

Where is cable hookup on 04 Mountain Aire 3650.
The cable hook up is almost always in a driver's side compartment, mine is in the compartment with the shore cord, not the water hook up. Remember that if you have an antenna booster it must be turned off or it will interfere with the cable signal.

Montana 5th wheel lci electronic leveling error external sensor please acknowledge will not clear, keep beeping. Cannot go into manual mode.
If you have low batteries (<11.8VDC) the system will not function properly are all. You will first have to make sure the battery or batteries are fully charged before you can go further. Recommend a trickle charger or, if you want to do it with jumper cables, remove the batteries from the coach for safety. If they are not holding charges well, take to an auto parts store to get checked. They can charge properly if all the cells are good; if not, replace.
Once voltage is corrected, turn the LCI system back on. Once it has booted up, you should be able to press and hold the MANUAL button for 3-5 seconds until the LED light indicator light up.
If the problem still persists, you will need to check each of the sensors wiring for visual damages or breaks. This would typically happen at the jacks or near the hydraulic station itself. Sometimes people will store items in the area and they move around. Also, if you have done any work out had work done in the camper, go over any areas to make sure wiring was not damaged. Unfortunately, i have done this accidentally to my own unit so I speak from experience. ??
