Fan where the Inverter is

We own a 2014 Tuscany 42WX that we full time in. Lately, when we are out and use the inverter, the fan runs sometimes for 48 hours before it cuts off. This after we are in from the trip and hooked to shore power. Any ideas what is going on? It seems like an insane amount of time for a fan to run.

Our 2014 Palazzo does the same thing. The fan is very small, and doesn't move a lot of air. The cmpt stays quite warm for a long period of time. Couple that with warm/hot ambient temp, and the fan will run a long time. From what Thor told me, this is normal.

Is it possible your inverter is an inverter/charger and the fan runs to keep the "charger" section cool while the battery bank is recharged off shore power?

I don't know but speculate that a standard inverter shouldn't take 48 hours to cool off after use. On the other hand it could take many hours to fully charge the batteries, and the charger generates a lot of heat in the process.

The fan is controlled by a sensor that on mine sort of hangs in the air inside. Mine hasn't run that long, but has run for about 12-14 hours. Yes, I suppose it's possible the inverter is charging the batteries, thus generating heat. Yes, I do plug in when we get home, just to keep that charge.

It may very well be charging the batteries as well. We check them regularly and they have not required much maintenance. We will pay more attention to this. We are only into full timing for a year and have changed coaches once already. Thank you to all for your replies. We much appreciate it.

My inverter is under the king bed totally enclosed with wood. I purchased two vents, sprayed them texture black, and will install them above the fuse panel to allow cross ventilation. As is yours, my fan is constantly on sometimes and that can not be good for longevity. Will provide a pic when completed
