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 have had a Heart Freedom 10 for over 10 years and have found it to be very reliable though slightly lacking in power if th a/c (just plugged in to fwd AC breaker)is on and I lose shore power or gen..
As MT1 says apply AC power to your main input then check the cooresponding pop up circut breaker for pwr in and through. your should get a transformer hum if power is getting to it and a depleted battery is hooked up. If you have a charged battery and a link you should get a led light and or a fault code of either a sequenced blinking light or a readout on the better remotes.
If this is not avilable just check all of the installed breakers for continuity before sending it in for repair as the shipping alone to and backwill be approx.$100.
Good luck. I am looking to upgrade to a freedom 20 now. There is a sell price on the net of $864.

SOURCE: inverter won't charge
The problem is the batteries. 1) Check the age of them to assure they are not near warranty limit. If so change them. 2) They must be topped off. I recommend using distilled water within every 30-60 days. Summary: After doing item 2 above charge them with an external charger; while connected to inverter is ok. Does this help?

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. E05: Flashing Fault LED: Flashing Alarm: Beeping = Output on inverter is shortcircuit
- Disconnect your output terminals and see if you still have the code. This is telling you there is an external short.
- If you still have the error with the output terminals disconnected start looking for internal inverter shorts to the output connector. (Chaffed wire / hot wire signs / internal + lead ground)
- If you have Circuit Breakers / fuses on your output side open all the CB/s or remove all fuses then turn on the CB's / install fuses one at a time until you note the Er05 error. Then troubleshoot the shorted circuit with an Ohm Meter.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
