Could be old dead batteries, but if not that charger is in need of service before something major goes.

I have a black and decker 100 watt power inverter. When the led turns red you are ethier overloading it or it overheated. to fix it unplug it and let it sit for 5 minutes. Plug it in. Plug in an item rated for 100 watts or less. Or try to charge somthing on the usb port.

remove the battery and take it to auto zone or Interstate battery and have the battery check for a bad cell if you have a shorted cell this will cause the problem. if the battery is low on water this can also cause a problem. if the battery checks out OK and there is no constant draw on the battery from say a water pump then you have a bad converter.

Yes, just be sure connections are heavy enough wire, and obviously the inverter uses 12 vdc input. Hook jumper wires positive to positive, negative to negative, on all 12 volt batteries. Deep cycle batteries will work better than car batteries. Just remember, when re-charging them, that they last longer when charged slowly, so don't use a high amp setting on charger and to monitor them closely, and do it in a well ventilated area, away from any ignition sources.

Frequency is a function of generator RPM. Slower the engine, lower the frequency. Faster the engine, higher then frequency.

Look at your generator first, it should be able to maintain this load without problems - check your governor.

You can try plugging in a lamp directly into the generator so that it won't see a pure inductive (input to inverter) load, but will also see the resistive load from the lamp.

Power Draw of 10Amps is going to be what it is, unless you change the AMP Hour capacity of your battery bank that is connected. Be careful though, as this will not only reduce the charging current (and amount of load present on the generator), but it may also affect how the inverter operates with heavy loads, and may cause the charging profile to go into bulk and float modes prematurely.

Are you feeding your generator into the inverter via the transfer switch, or are you plugging the coach power cord into the generator? The former would force all the AC loads to be switched by the inverter, the latter allows all ac loads to be powered, even those that you may not know about / realize (water heater loads are a big one) and eat up generator capacity.

Hi, well you see this happened because the "Load" on the Inverter was more than it could handle. You see the Inverter senses the resistance of the batteries to determine how flat they are and how much current to put into the batteries, if anything else is connected to said batteries, that will simply muck up the sensing,and as has happened in your case destroyed the inverter.
I have serviced many inverters and the most likely failure that would emit sparks etc is failed output semiconductors.
One cannot really use an inverter to charge the batteries, like you did, UNLESS the batteries were completely isolated from the Generators wiring, and even then, your inverter, still may not have enough power to do this. As this is NOT what it was designed for.
Really an inverter is used to step up the Voltage from 12/24 Volts DC, batteries to 120/230 V AC.
Now again, one could use it, to then have a Battery Charger plugged into that, and use the output from the battery charger to charge some "Other" batteries, but that seems a bit roundabout.
Yes the Inverter will charge it's OWN batteries, BUT ONLY if that is the ONLY thing connected to the inverter.

Can't find the transfer switch, and could it go bad. Shore power and generator power works to the main panel box, but won't charge coach batteries


although it is possible to do separately most times the transfer switch is internal to the inverter , and the fact you mention that inverter is not charging batteries tells me your fault lay in the inverter all or part of it is not working , look at it carefully these have sometimes two reset breakers on there cases

Batteries won't charge with shore power and generator, have checked fuses. Inverter works until batteries get to low.


not knowing model number its impossible for me to determine if your inverter has a battery charger , not all do some require a external one , most charge off aux engine alternator this same engine also makes compressed air and hydraulic power for controls and steering , mid size boats use one engine for all this plus main drive , larger ones use a separate engine for these functions (safer)

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 am also facing the same problem with my O2 XDA mini. It seems to be the problem with the battery/charger. Are you using genuine battery/chargers that came with the phone? I am using a local battery so assume that it has to do something with the battery itself.
