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.

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?

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.
