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?

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

The charger has four distinct charging stages - 1) Bulk, 2) Acceptance, 3) Float, and 4) Equalization. If your batteries are old and therefore won't reach full charge, the charger may not be able to get them up to the voltage where float charging kicks in. If you ever allowed the water in the batteries to get down to where the plates were exposed, one or more of your batteries may be contaminated with excessive sulfate buildup on the plates. The equalization process (Stage 4,which must be entered manually) will help to return any excessive sulfate builup back into solution, so you might try that and see if the performance improves.
