This is in my 2001 National Tradewinds and was wondering if it is supposed to light up when I'm not connected to power (50amp) It does light up when I'm plugged into shore power. The picture is of the Freedom Remote Control Panel

If you're trying to post a pic from your computer or phone, that doesn't work.

Any thoughts as to how to post the picture. It's of my Freedom Remote Control Panel inside the MH. The panel does come on when I'm plugged into shore power but doesn't show anything when I disconnect the shore power.

Yes I did, but no one answered my question. The remote panel inside lights up showing charging, volts etc when I am plugged into shore power. But is does not light up if I shut down shore power. Is this the way it works or do I have a problem.

So I thought if I came over to Tech issues I would get a better answer.

I've got a Freedom 25 Inverter/Charger with a Link 2000 controller in my motorhome. I've also have copies of the owner's manuals. If you have the same let me know and I can email you a copy.

Appreciate that but my Inverter is a Xantrex Freedom 458 series. And yes I have the books, just not smart enough to understand them.

On shore power you should have the charger part enabled and 12v for those things that need that.

No shore power, now you are on battery for all 12v including for the inverter.

So is there some disconnect so you are not on inverter at all with no shore power? Or is it just the remote that doesn't work, but you are still getting 120v from the inverter to run 120v things and 12v from battery to run those other things?

from the manual
Quote:

The LED bar graphs on the remote control panel show battery voltage and DC current in both inverter and charger modes

so it lights up when you have shore power or you push the invert button to turn on the inverter that's it.

So if the panel doesn't show any thing on with no shore power and the invert button is off then I'm good?
