The inverter that converts the 12 volts to 120VAC is not working. An eletronic repair shop can fix this. refrigertor technician will replace the whole inverter, Or you can order the inverter unit and replace it yourself if you are somewhat a handy kind of person. It is not really that hard to replace them. Make sure first that the inverter is not putting out 120VAC when you connect 12V to it, before you take it to a shop.

Replaced coach batteries and still not working


There is a relay that operates when you hook up to shore power that switches from battery power to converter power. It also charges the batteries. If you do not have battery power then suspect a faulty relay. It is located inside the power converter.

HAVE 110 WHEN PLUGGED IN OR ON GEN BUT HAVE LOST 12V WHEN UNPLUGGED OR GEN OFF.


Do you have 12v when plugged in or on generator? If you do, then it's likely 1) a fuse or breaker for the converter, or 2) the converter is dead. Is your battery good? Try using taking the battery out and using to crank your car or truck. If that works, look at the fuse or breaker for your converter or your converter may be dead. If the batter doesn't work, do the opposite and put your car/truck battery in your RV and see if your 12v works -- if it doesn't, then check your converter fuse/breaker or it may be dead; if it does, then your battery is terminally (pun) dead.

What is the problem, my Storm is plugged into the power supply and everything does not work until I start it up. When I turn it off, the lights and everything else works for a little while then sarts to...


Do you have power at the outlets? If you do but the lights keep going dim then your converter is going bad or has already failed. Your lights are 12v and the outlets are 100v. If you do not have power at the outlets then you need to check the transfer switch that toggles between generator power and shore power.

You might unhook the battery and with the camper plugged in to shore power the 12v lights should work. If not check the breaker that goes to the inverter. If that is not tripped then check the power output at the converter. I would expect the inverter is shot. I replaced the one on my Jaco two years ago with (Progressive Dynamics 60 Amp Power Converter with Charge Wizard and the remote pendant)

I have a Xantrex 3000 Watt inverter on my boat, largely to run my 120-volt fridge. The installer told me to never, ever have my shore power hooked up, and especially not to turn on the AC circuitbreaker...


Most likely reason for 'ticking' sound is one or more FET(field effect transistor) have shorted . Any electronics shop can fix ,but, repair may approach cost of replacing . The parts themselves are not expensive but labour may be high .
Consider getting an inverter designed for solar installs with proper automatic 'shore power' switching and never worry again .

Fridge not working on 12V or 220V


hi simon, i would say your ac heater is gone bad. it could have open up and no longer heating when you have a power surge . these heating elemenent are also located in the gas generator. you have to replace this heating element.
