I have that same inverter in my '08 35GS but don't turn it on unless I don't have shore power, so I guess that's why it doesn't do the same thing?

inverter tripping out

I am sorry should have clarified there are two sources that run off the inverter everything else is fine one is the entertainment center and the other is one outlet those are the ones I loose occasionally so if I shut off the inverter those two don't work thanks Don

I would check all wiring connections at the inverter especially the ground, (at both the inverter and the other end of the incoming connections from the battery).

sorry i missed this

I am such a dummy I forgot that there is also a remote switch which I never mess with so how do I put the system in the off position I believe the unit switch is in the down position which is the circle and where should the remote switch be because I never use any of the circuits for battery power

You are correct. With the remote switch position down (off) it still allows shore power to pass through the inverter to the outlets it serves.

I've got the same problem Only Happens some times when first plugging in or starting the generator I feel it has to do with the transfer switch that was changed due to the recall on it

If you remove a bottom wardrobe drawer or the vented panel you can clearly see the transfer switch behind the wall where the 120V and 12V panels are located in the bedroom.
Mine was replaced before I got it earlier this year. The 120V and 12V panels are original Iota but the transfer switch is a Esco LPT50BRD; https://www.amazon.com/Esco-LPT50BRD.../dp/B008VF91ME
If you do have the original Iota transfer switch any Jayco dealer should replace it for free under the recall.
