I have intermittent problems with the E05 error code. The problem occurs when I unplug from shore power. I've discovered that cycling the battery disconnect switch solves the problem. I've probably got a relay with bad contacts that intermittently don't "make" enough to complete the circuit. It's a simple thing to try as all you have to do is press the battery disconnect switch, wait for a bit, and press it again.

E05 error code indicates low battery input and will only be present when disconnected from shore power and without the genset running.

I'm saying that is a possibility, it is internal to the Inverter. If you get the error with nothing plugged in that indicates a short someplace. Possibly inside the Inverter. Probably cheaper to buy a new Inverter if that is the case.

It also indicates an overload or short, per the owner's manual.

E05 Red Overload shutdown
Short circuit
Reduce or disconnect the load. Make sure the load does not
exceed the XM 1800s output rating.
Check connection to the load

I removed the relay switch that was wired with the TV outlet. That wire has not power.
I turned the house battery switch off and on. I checked all the fuses and breakers.

Do you think I have a bad battery?

I stand corrected! Thanks Grumpy. Perhaps cycling the battery disconnect switch resets the inverter. Like you said I would have to go along with excess output load up to and including a short somewhere.

"When the XM 1800 senses that the output load is above its output limit
(or senses a short circuit at the output), it will shut down. The alarm beeps
once a second, and the display shows fault code E05 alternating with
“OL”."

That (red or purple or whatever)wire only gets power when the ignition is on and opens the relay so you can't watch TV while driving.

Sorry, but I have to ask.

When you removed the relay did you rewire the outlet correctly. Should be black on the brass screw, white on the silver screw and (bare)ground on the green screw. If you reversed the white and black you have a direct short, since white (neutral) and bare (ground) share a common connection

I did rewire it correctly to the outlet, but still no power.

115VAC path for the inverter would start at the input to the converter, go through the breaker of the converter, go into the inverter, go directly through the inverter (through a relay), leave the inverter through Romex that goes directly to the TV outlet. At least this is how my MH is wired. If not on shore power, then the inverter would generate the 115VAC and leave on the same Romex wire from inverter to outlet.

If you can locate your inverter, you can start with some measurements from there. The inverter on my rig is under the bed. The panel that provides the alarms and indicates is only a remote panel for monitoring only.

Bad battery should be E0-2 Low input voltage. EO-5 only indicates two things, overload or short.

Here's the link to the owner's manual if you don't have it.

What is powered by the Inverter besides the front TV, anything else?
