That switch you're referring to is the inverter battery cutoff switch. Depending on the inverter package you have will depend on the on/off switch. The basic inverted system runs just the residential fridge. The next up inverts several plugs in the RV. The basic dimensions inverter has an on/off switch. The upgraded system has a control panel with a switch but the switch is disabled. See the manuals below.

Recently had an issue on my 3231ck. On mine there is a GFCI receptacle behind the tv. My refrigerator was wired off of that GFCI and it tripped causing the refrigerator to shut off. You might check this as it is a simple fix to reset that device. Good Luck

I don't know much about electrical wiring, but I see that your problem involves a GFCI outlet and a TV, just like the post right above yours does.

I had a GFCI outlet trip with a TV plugged into it recently, too, and I reset it, then turned the TV on again. After about ten minutes, the GFCI outlet tripped again, and I reset it without the TV plugged into it. Just moments later, though, the outlet tripped again without anything plugged into it, and would not reset.

I thought I had a wiring issue I was going to have to deal with eventually, or a bad GFCI outlet I was going to have to replace, but about five weeks later, I tried resetting the GFCI outlet again, and this time it worked. I've been using the outlet ever since, with no problem--but with an electric heater and a nightlight, not the TV. I haven't plugged that TV in again anywhere.

After researching the problem, I've determined that my TV is probably to blame. Apparently TVs are known to trip GFCI outlets. Or, rain may have gotten into a junction box under a slide, but then then the junction box dried out, allowing the outlet to reset. Or bugs may have gotten into the outlet and caused it to trip and not reset. I still don't know--just telling you this to let you know that your problem may be your TV.

This is an old thread--I think if you posted again, starting a new thread, you'd probably get more responses and more helpful information.

Here's a schematic but an actual wire run diagram doesn't exist. Have you tried to recycle the inverter power? If your inverter is off it won't pass shore power to the inverted outlets. You could also have a bad GFI or connection to it. Remove it and check.

Mods: Kiwi Kids question deserves to be a new separate thread. Can you make it so?

Done
