Sorry for the delay. I don't understand why they have the third "on/off" switch. Normally on a boat like yours, the set would be as follows :
Each pair of batteries would be jumped together to make a single large bank. We can then consider them "bank 1" and "bank 2" usually they will correspond to port and starboard.
Now you will take the positive lead from bank 1 and connect it to B1 on the port switch and then jumper it to B1 on the starboard switch.
You will do the same for bank 2 and the starboard switch.
The "common" on each switch will be your positive output to the motors corresponding them to port and starboard.
Now you can run your port motor with the port switch selected to battery 1 and the starboard motor with the starboard switch selected to battery 2.
Your emergency parallel is already built in. If battery bank 1 dies, you can start both engines with battery bank 2 and vice versa. Putting the switche(s) to the "all" position will allow you to start/run the engine(s) form both banks at once.
You can use the third switch to supply the "house" system. Take its power feed from the "common" terminal on either of the battery switches. In this way you can isolate which battery bank you use to draw power from for all of your accessories so there is no fear of you running a battery bank dead and being stranded. For example if your house feed is connected to the port battery switch and you have the port battery switch selected to bank 1 (port bank), should you run the battery dead listening to the radio you can simply start the starboard engine and then select "all" on the port switch. Now the starboard engine will be charging the port battery bank, bringing the house system back to life and allowing you to start the port engine.
In order for the system to work it is important that all of the battery and engine grounds be connected together in a central point (a common buss bar).
Dont forget that you cannot switch battery switches while the engines are running.

Testimonial: "Thank you for your technical information,it is of great help."
SOURCE: The unit is Freedom 20
There are a couple of possibilities. 1. Fuse, 2. Bad Battery and 3. Damaged Mosfet. Honestly I am not familiar with this model, but as far as I know, inverters having output problem means battery or the mosfets (Transistors).
Check the Fuse and make sure it's still working, I would suggest you to replace it. For more details about compatible fuse, please refer to the user manual (click HERE).
If you have extra battery, you can try with it to verify whether the problem is with the battery or not. But if you don't have a spare battery I wouldn't suggest you to get a new one since these kind of batteries are quite expensive. Well, did you smell burnt plastic or rubber or etc? Did you see smoke came out from the machine? Did you hear any cracking or bursting/exploding sound? Actually, it's important to know how this started, whether without any sign of damage or it just stopped while it was using or one of the things I've asked. If you are not familiar with mosfets and transistors, I won't recommend you to try yourself, instead take it to the service center or take it to a local electronic repair shop and get it fixed.
I don't mean it's should be only with the Mosfet and the battery, but there are other components that could cause the problem, I am only telling you the most likeliest possibilities.
Hope this helps.
Thanks for using FixYa.
