If it ends up being a bad board...
Take it to your local Radio Shak...they can usually hook you up with someone that can do a component check on the board..and possibly repair it..

It might be possible to find an inverter on the internet.

We are a warranty/service center for all brands of RV generators, most brands of portables & several brands of standby generators.

If the inverter is the only issue ,and a new one is too much cash or unavailable ,any reason he cant go to a rv store or harbour freight and just buy an off the shelf 1000 watt inverter and run that externally off the 12 volt generator output ?

OldTimer...Having not worked on the electrical end of too many of the newer generators...
On the older ones from the 70s and 80s...periods of inactivity would cause them not to have any output...
It was common practice to FLASH the field by inserting 2 jumper wires from a 12v battery into the ac outlet while it was running...
It fixed a bunch of them....Is this still possible with the newer generators ???

I have been a technical contributor to this site for 3 years...and have never witnessed the amount of childish antics on this forum...as has been seen here in the last month..

If by standing up to this crap...I am the bad guy...then ...
