Just got moved into a new truck and I can't get the inverter to work.

It's a Cooper-Busman 1800 pure sine inverter.

It'll power up and shows good input volts, but I can't get it to output anything.

Has a status light that's on yellow (which maybe means battery?).

Does it just need to charge for a while? Is it busted? Y'all have any thoughts or troubleshooting tips?

(I would just wait but I have food that should be cold so I'm antsy.

I would first check all connections, then see if there is another display showing on the control panel as you press the power or menu button.

I would also need to ask if you read the instructions pamphlet?

Have you tried resetting the breaker? Trip it then reset and see if that fixes it. It should be on the inverter between the 110 plugs and look just like a houshold GFI outlet often seen in the bathroom.

This is exactly what I had to do.

I have the same problem.... it seems after every time I start driving... my inverter faults.... I have to reset it every time I stop for the night.

I do the same as Mikey B. and Grumpy old man.... I push the reset button which is next to the yellow l.e.d.

If anyone has any ideas on how I can resolve this continuous problem.... Also... I will be talking to maintenance soon.

I am adding a pic from the internet... and I put in an arrow as to the exact location of the reset button.
