Inverter issue. Hard reset at breaker resolved issue.

Regarding my 340RL. Not sure whether this is related to my recent Air Conditioner post or not, but we returned to the camper last night, and noticed that the fridge had lost power (spoiled food, etc). Additionally, the TV, and stove lighting had no power. Fireplace, microwave and counter outlets still had power. Searched the panel for Fridge, TV or stove and found nothing. Did some forum searching and learned that they all had ties to the inverter. I tried turning off the inverter at the panel, waiting a minute or so then powering it back on. That didn't work, so I checked the panel. The inverter breaker felt tight, not like it had tripped and not flipped all the way off. I switched it off, and the fridge, TV and stove lights came on. I waited a few seconds and then switched the inverter breaker back on. 110v was restored to the fridge, TV and stove lights. This morning everything still works. Presumably, the recent panel work, or disconnection from the pedestal for the AC work necessitated a hard reset of the inverter? Strange behavior...

Thanks @Jim Beletti! Our mobile tech is coming back out to check the A/C again (it's still tripping it's breaker) next week. He made mention of being aware of a recall on the power inlet used on some of the Alliances where there can be loose connections. He's aware of what happened with the inverter, so I'll let him keep running the issue(s) down. I have a service case open for the A/C issue with the team there at Alliance as well.

@Andrew - The power inlet item was "the potential" of a loose screw on one or more of the terminals holding the wires in on the backside of the power inlet. Your mobile should be able to look at this in just a few minutes time.

As for the inverter - my sense is this will need to be replaced. This can easily be done in the field by a mobile tech. Continue to work the matter with our team.

I have had this happen 2X to mine in the past year 2021 310RL) . Both times it reset ok with no issues. Is this normal or is there something I should be checking?
Thanks
@alforth - are you saying that when your Inverter is on, the sometimes, for reasons unknown, it shuts off and/or trips the breaker in the Inverter breaker panel? If yes, to me, it sounds like your Inverter may beed to be replaced. Your best bet here is to reach out to our Customer Experience team via email at service@alliancerv.com. Include your name, phone, last 6 digits of your VIN, an explanation of the issue and any relevant pictures.

Thanks .. I will contact them. When I reset the breaker it doesn't even seem to have tripped, so I turn it off and back on again and allseems ok. Have only had this happen 2X in the past year.

I had the exact same situation in my coach. I was told the inverter would have to be replaced. I ended up removing my factory inverter when I installed a large energy system.
