Question Inverter

I have a 2016 Redwood, we traveled from San Antonio, Tx to Destin, Fl and when we stop we noticed that the ice was melting from the ice machine on the refrigerator..does our inverter have something to do with it. Our inverter does not stay on is this normal. HELP

I assume you have the standard Redwood residential package, with an inverter mounted in the basement storage area. The inverter operation is directly related to the battery capacity, condition as well as all the battery cables. How many batteries and how new and how big are they? The inverter will only operate properly as long as there is battery power to feed it.

I had many loose connections in the battery compartment. Check your connections, but make sure you look before you pull where it is connected to. Once I straightened that out I could travel a couple days without any problems from the fridge. Works perfect.

What voltage were the batteries reading when you stopped in Destin? Did you load test the batteries? How many do you have?
