How do you get the PCB out all the 4 screws are out and clips are pushed off the pcb contacts on the sides. Unscrewed the antenna, but not the soldered in bulk antenna mount. I is still locked in somehow? how do I get the board out to look at the keypad buttons so I can see if threre is a bad contact?

SOURCE: Wiring Freedom 20 inverter
make sure your new inverter is made for 220 volt supply as that is what the red wire represents. its the other leg of a 220 circuit and should not be connected to your new inverter until you read the manual to see if it is designed for this and if so how to wire it in. it could cause you are the unit serious harm if you connect a 110 inverter to a 220 circuit. consult an rv repair shop or a good electrition if you cant find the needed info. it may actually be printed on the side of the inverter as well.

Terry this unit has 2 AC outputs so the reading that you got is correct. I am trying to surmise the actual problem that you have. You may have lost a system ground in the mobile home which would give you power as you stated but no power to the mobile home as the system ground has been lost.
Dumb questions time.
1. Battery voltage above 10 Volts?
2. Have you checked the DC Fuse?
3. Have you reset the breaker on the control panel?
Last test.. is to disconnect all outputs and try a voltage test again. A system distribution short will cause the inverter to go into the self protect mode.
Have you reset the breaker

Sounds like the link between the inverter and the remote is bad. Chaffed wire, broken wire, etc may be the culprit.
You should still have the shorting jumper that came with the Freedom. Put the jumper into the AUX port, and you should now have local control of the inverter. If so, then replace the wiring between inverter and remote.

this isn't an answer but i would like to just clear the water a little. how old is the unit? you say it the inverter works when on shore power ( 110v A.C. wall plug or 220 ) but it will not charge the batteries while hooked up to shore power? are you trying to use a generator to run the inverter and charge the batteries? I just need to a little more so i can better understand you problem and help you better
Looking forward to hearing back from you.
