Residential Fridge and formerly powered outlets won't run on Battery Power

    Residential fridge runs fine on shore power and also on generator. Won't run (light goes dark) when on battery.  All 110 outlets that typically ran off the battery when not on shore power also don't work. i'm guessing somewhere there is a fuse blown. Batteries appear to be charging when on shore power.  Electricity is not my forte. Any clues?  Rodent attack over the winter? Rv is a 2016 Fleetwood Excursion 35E

    have you checked the small button circuit breaker on the inverter?

    Let’s try the simple fix first.   Press and hold the on/off button on the Magnum inverter control panel until the green light comes on.

    Turning the inverter on did the trick. Haven't had to do that in the 5 years we've had the coach but I'm thankful for simple fixes. What might have caused it to be off?

    Happy that fixed your issue.  As for how or why it turned off, no idea. Just glad it's working for you.
