OK my 2000 Discovery does the same thing. Try and hit the inverter charger with your fist 3-4 times, then listen and see if the charger fan starts up. I will be bringing my inverter to Portland this week to have the tech look at it. The other thing is it could be the transfer switch. Will let you know.

I just need to a little more so i can better understand you problem and help you better

SOURCE: Freedom 20 Inverter/Converter Charger installed

Second Freedom 25 inverter/charger...first one repaired, this one went to fault...started microwave on fire, fried the satillite receiver and possibly other components....installing a Mangnum....."do not let anyone rebuild the Freedom 25" First time about $900.00 to rebuild...this time about $9000.00 with components it fried. Fleetwood LLC Corporate knows of problems and only offer to sell you the conversion kit for about $4200.00....bankruptcy sanctifies previous problems "they" left with us.

Xantrex inverter/ charger smells like burning electrical


I would call or e-mail the manufacturer of the inverter. The dealer or dealers may know the issue but likely the manufacturer will be more help.
Some devices like an inverter will have a smell in the beginning, power supplies are like that. You said that the inverter didn't get hot but smell indicates something is hot.

Sounds like the link between the inverter and the remote is bad. Chaffed wire, broken wire, etc may be the culprit.

You should still have the shorting jumper that came with the Freedom. Put the jumper into the AUX port, and you should now have local control of the inverter. If so, then replace the wiring between inverter and remote.

The inverter dose not charge the batters on my coach.


From the manual I read on the Xantrex website shows 2 fuses. 1 in the F1 Position which is the outer circuit breaker, and the other in the F2 position. You can see the F1 tube-style fuse from the front, but the F2 fuse you have to tuck your head behind and see it from the other side. You can see if the fuse wire is burnt. To be sure, use an ohm meter to check the continuity of the circuit. Hope that helps.

Xantrex 458 freedom....has stopped charging house batteries off of engine alternator. Alternator is showing that it works (dash gauge). It does charge while on shore power or generator....but not charging...


Fis\rst of all is the inverter supplying 120 VAC? when turned on?. If so the inverter seems to be working.I think your problem is in the truck alternator/charging system. The inverter is independent of this charger..
