All the DC fused checked out fine. I was pretty sure they would since everything works now. The lights, refrigerator, the blower for the air conditioner, lights, water pump, and the electric water heater.

I checked the ground on the battery and it is hooked up and tight, as are the battery connections.

I just moved so I am limited on tools. Most of my stuff is in storage still.

But I ran continuity checks on all DC fuses.

I will reserve pulling the panel and checking all the wiring when I get home.

Thanks for all the help. At least my fix works. Not sure why.

No. I did not have time. PI suggested I do not hard wire it in, but get some adapters so I can remove it when on generator power, as it is now.

Keep in mind you aren't charging your battery right now.

Not a problem while running off the generator.

That is even weirder. I checked the battery level and it was at 3/4 full, and now that everything is working, it reads FULL.

Yeah, I know, impossible.

P.S. Maybe the breaker is wired backwards?

Thanks guys for all the suggestions.

I am going to sign off. I do not want to use up all my data on my phone.

I will sign in again and let you know what I find if I decide to crack open the breaker panel. I doubt I will without more proper tools.

Greatly appreciated all the help.

Most breakers are bi-directional.

I agree this is really weird!

But your lights, radio, furnace, fridge, fans, and Furrion stereo are running on your non charging battery

Just the opposite. He has the disconnect off so the battery is isolated.

At least that is my understanding.

He shut off the converter and turned the disconnect on

And most likely, because he has a disconnect, (and you for that matter) the progressive dynamics converter panel is wired to keep charging the battery while the disconnect is off.

That's one reason why I wanted to see a picture of his converter insides.

Without knowing what amount of power you are drawing I would try and keep it down while on the generator so that you don't trip the Circuit Breaker on the Generator.


Have a good night and keep the forum posted.
