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

Outlets not working all fuses are good


120-
VOLT
AC
SYSTEM
The following electrical components (if so equipped) will only operate when your
RV is connected to shore power: 120 to
12-volt power converter, air conditioner,
120-volt refrigerator, microwave oven, television(s), fireplace and appliances
plugged into convenience receptacles.

SECTION 6 - ELECTRICAL SYSTEM JAYCO TOWABLE
6-2
120-
VOLT
CIRCUIT
BREAKERS
The 120-volt AC circuit breakers located in
side the main load center protect all
120-volt wiring and components in the RV fr
om circuit overloads and short circuits.
Should a circuit overload or short circui
t occur the circuit breaker protecting the
affected circuit will "trip" preventing the flow of electricity through that circuit.
If a circuit breaker trips, shut "off"
the appliance on that circuit (i.e., power
converter etc.) and allow the circuit breaker to cool down for a brief period of time.
After the cooling down period, reset the circuit breaker by moving its lever "off" and
then back to the "on" position. If the circuit breaker re-trips or frequently trips,
contact your dealer to have the electrical problem diagnosed and repaired.
A circuit breaker identification label is permanently attached to the inside surface
of the 120-volt load center.
Maintenance and Replacement
At the beginning of camping season, inspect the circuit breakers and replace as
needed. Test by turning each circuit breaker "off" and back "on". Circuit breakers
are wearable parts and must be replaced
as needed, as part of your RV
maintenance. If you have any questions, consult your dealer.
Please contact your dealer for repair assistance when replacing circuit breakers.
CONVERTER
The power converter converts 120-volt AC power to useable 12-volt DC power
when the shore power cord is connected to an external power source.
The converter has a built-in protective thermal breaker that will shut it down should
overheating occur. Overheating can be
caused by operating the converter above
its maximum power output for an extended period of time, or by an obstruction to
its ventilation air flow. To reduce converter heat build keep unnecessary 12-volt
lights and motors turned "off"
.
Keep the converter cooling fins and fan clear of
obstructions.
Inspection and maintenance
If the 12-volt power converter is not working (auxiliary battery not being charged)
check the reverse polarity fuse(s) in the converter fuse panel.
There are no
customer serviceable parts inside the converter case and the
manufacturer's warranty will be void if
the case has been removed
. If you
have further concerns contact your dealer.

Heart freedom 20. As soon as shore power is applied the inverter makes a growl sound, like a stuttering switch.


STOP!!! Immediately have the shore power breakers checked by assuring both output legs have EQUAL output. If not they can either burn out the inverter solid states components or the main coach A/C, Generator transfer switch. You can usually check this with a multimeter but the shore power park managers usually have maintenance personnel to check and replace bad pedestal breakers. Does this help?

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..

Rv2012 Inverts but dosnt charge


I have the same problem with my Freedom Marine 25. Assuming it worked previously and you have checked all the obvious things (generator/shore power breaker contacts, etc.), the Xantrex tech says it is likely a small 1/4 amp slow blow fuse on the AC sensing card inside the box, but that the AC transformer may have shorted to cause the fuse to blow. The internal arrangement may be different but remove the cover screws and locate the 2"x2" transformer on the AC sensing card for signs of arcing or charring. If you have a meter, check the transformer coils and if it reads significantly less than ~ 130 ohms, that is likely your problem, which will require taking the unit to an Xantrex authorized service center, since Xantrex does not provide parts or schematics to the general public.

I have an old Heart Freedom 20 charger/ inverter. It was in charge mode when lightening struck nearby and now doesn't do anything. Fuses???


Unlikely. Most likely it is dead. These are typically not very robust units and are riddled with issues without the help of lightning. If you can comfirm that there is voltage making it to the main input terminals and it is not doing anything, then it is time for a replacement or a rebuild. If you are on the East Coast, there is a great place where I send all of my Freedom units for repair. It is calle Tekris Power Electronics and they are in NJ. Good Luck

Freedom 20 stops passing good AC input after about 15 sec.


This unit does have an idle mode where it will not output without a load. What I am unsure of is if this exists only for invert mode or for both invert and pass through. Try reprogramming the remote to eliminate the idle feature and then see what happens.
