Other suggestion I could think of would be that you have some breakers tripped in your panel box
And you could check to make sure your inverter is turned on, from the inside of your RV

Define "Power". If the inverter has a green light it has 12 VDC "power".

What are you missing?

Normally the Inverter has a separate positive cable connected to the batteries from the normal 12 VDC buss positive cable.

check to see if your Inverter unit has a pressable FUSE on the end, it may be needing to be reset, too.

None of those are powered by the inverter except maybe for the fridge IF you have a residential refrigerator; an absorption fridge needs 12 VDC to work. It sounds like you are still missing the cable from your battery positive terminals to the DC buss.

The air conditioner is only powered by 120 VAC when plugged in or when the generator is running.

Where could I find that, I think my inverter is below my fridge?

Find what?

I'm telling you that a cable is not connected to the positive side of your batteries. Recheck your cables and connections.

Looks like a battery needs to be flipped around? Post another photo.

Positive terminals not connected together!

Call Thor and ask for a battery schematic for your brand to be Emailed to you. Make copies cause you might need it again. Oh yeah, that's when I saw the 'postive' cables are colored RED in the schematic, but all the cables have the black plastic covering and the red colored lugs for the ends. Not to mention that the Inverter cable fell down behind a battery before I could zip tie it to the other cables on that battery post. Also found that putting a piece of plywood under the battery helps to move it out of its place later. And the hold down strap? PITA.

I believe he has 2 6 volt batteries. That's why they are in series.

Reading your posts, in post #5 you say your batteries are 12.5v.



Post #9 shows your obviously mis-wired battery bank.


Post #16 says you have wired the batteries in series.


Based on the above your battery bank is putting out 25 volts. That is enough to prevent anything from working and probably cause some blown breakers and/or fuses.


Are your batteries really 12v batteries?

I believe he has 6v batteries, but 12v output with series wiring, though he originally miswired them when he put the new ones in. Now, he has power to 12v items, but no output from the Inverter.

But he has no lights which are powered from the battery. He has sent too many mixed signals to help him much more without answering the questions people have asked. I think he found this problem but has failed to update this thread because he is now on to a generator problem.

This was a problem before I replaced the batteries, I still had no power to the rv for anything other then the chassis. I have rewired the batteries now so they are in series. The inverter will run but I still have no power to the rv.
