Inverter keeps coming on

Hello,
I have my 2018 Thor Hurricane stored indoors. In store mode and plugged into 50 amp outlet. The inverter if off at the control panel (green button out). My inverter keeps coming on intermittently. I though I had it figured out when I put the auto gen start into off position, but still comes on. Anyone have any ideas?
Thanks

I don’t have a inverter/converter unit in my coach, but I “wonder” if your unit’s manual specifies a formal shut down procedure for the inverter which turns off the inverter section, but will leave the converter portion working to charge batteries from shore AC? Just a WAG (wild a$$ guess).

clarify some info:

What BRAND and type of inverter do you have

What 'panel' do you have

Does the inverter supply power to all of your outlets, or just the fridge?

Where is the inverter located

Does the green light come on or is it that you here the cooling fan cycle? If on shore power, the internal transfer relay is energized and creates some heat which will cycle the internal cooling fan.

I will get picks later today. It runs a residential fridge and a couple of outlets (Front passenger, TV, DVD) I thought it had to on to work. Nest time I here it I will try to turn on the tv to see if it is just internal heat from standby.

Do you guys think this will cause it to fail earlier? It is in the garage, so don't know how often it is on.

Thanks for the replies
