Inverter Shut Down

Watching TV this AM in our 2015 25ft FC and it shut off. It appears the inverter stopped sending power to the outlets. The green light on the on/off switch is on. Help! Is there a fuse in the converter for the inverter? The manual says it would reset when load was removed, but it was only 1 24 inch TV and it did not come back on.
Thanks for any help!

Per the wiring diagrams I have for our 27FB, there is a fuse from your batteries to your inverter. I see no correlation from the converter to the inverter. It is identified as Item M-19 a 110 amp fuse for the 1000 watt model, it is located on the large red 4 gage cable.
Locate your inverter and the fuse should be nearby.

After re-reading your post again- I have a couple of questions/comments/suggestions. Or maybe I will just, mumble to myself to talk myself through this issue.

Green light "On" on your remote inverter switch....fuse probably not blown on your inverter. I am assuming this led is powered from within the Inverter itself.
Just guessing here but it may still be possible the output of the inverter is zero, and the green light is still controlled to the on state. (Would need to have a schematic on the internals to see if that is possible.) In that case perhaps Inverter died.

I don't know how low the batteries could go before the Inverter stops outputting AC power. Maybe it would not shut off on its own, but I doubt it. But lets say it would ride your batteries to death, I would have to assume the output voltage of the inverter would decrease as well, and after assuming that; your TV might just not be too happy about that and shut itself off. In this case just recharge your batteries.

So going back to square one, I am assuming you did not have shore/generator power at the time of the incident. Because if you did, I would need to be asking you; why are you bringing in AC power to convert to DC power to Invert back to AC power in order to run your TV.

Is it fixed yet? Do you need anymore of my "help"

Mine shuts down whenever the solar charge controller gets over 15 volts. What are you using to charge your batteries?

My aftermarket go power 1500w pure sine wave inverter has a gfi outlet integrated that can trip independently of the main inverter fuse... just a thought... sometimes gfi outlets go bad.

Inverter Shut Down

Not a ton to go on, but I like the above response above where the poster mentions low battery voltage.

If the input voltage gets below range, the inverter should switch off while normally your 12 volt fixtures and appliance will continue to work.

What is your battery voltage?

If my memory serves me correctly, my aftermarket inverter shuts down at 11.4 volts....

Gradiens super tenui glacie.
The fact that I am opinionated does not presuppose that I am wrong......

Inverters have a threshold, go below it and they will shut down to prevent totally draining the battery. There is an inline fuse in the 12 volt supply but that fails only if you have a dead short in the inverter. On the inside I have 2-35 amp fuses, which is a possibility, but I don't think that's your problem.

Since you're watching TV using the inverter I'm going to guess that you are not hooked up to shore power and your batteries are low, so the inverter shut down. Check your battery voltage and report back.
