Default Trace inverter off

You guys have been great helping me in the past. I have another problem. One of my Trace inverters (3000 series) is not working. The led light on the inverter is off, and the RC7 control panel says waiting for AC". The other inverter and control panel are working fine. I have checked the circuit breakers in the bedroom, none have tripped. Thanks in advance.

Maybe I figured it out? The circuit breakers labeled "battery charger", one has power coming out of it, and other does not, even though both of them are switched on. Does that happen?

Nope, not that. I am not very observant. I have no power to leg 2. What should I check?

Brian -
I assume that you have checked the breakers under the bed. Is there no power on leg 2 at the main AC breaker panel? I would think it might be either a bad breaker in the panel, or the transfer switch. This assumes that the pop up breakers on the Trace are not active. Nothing to do except march it back with a meter.

I opened up a box in a bay containing what I always called contactors, there are two Furnas controllers there. When power is off at the pedestal, and little square buttons in the center of those are out. Power on, and one of the buttons goes in, the other stays out, does not move. I am assuming the contactor/controller is bad???

If you are on shore power start checking from the outlet/post where you are plugged in.

you may be looking at transfer switch one in for shore power other in for genset... I would use a meter and make sure you have power to both legs of shore power and check for power at inverter that does not work call me if you need to 309-six nine four 0 four seven 2 mike

Had the same problem last Summer. Found that in the battery compartment that large switch that turns the batteries on/off was melted. Installed a Blue Sea #3003 and all is well.
