Underway AC

On shore power AC1 both panels work fine. Underway, the panel with the ice maker, water heater, stove top doesn't turn on. Anything I should look at?

Thanks,
Jfrano

Are you on generator or running inverter? Inverter does not power everything.

Power AC2 panel( Air conditioner) but this is 1 of 2 panels on AC1.

I don't know about the ice maker, but I think the water heater and stove top draw too much power for the inverter, so are probably not wired into the inverter circuit. That would explain why there are two panels for AC1. One for things that will run off the inverter, and one for things that won't.

Looking at owners manual I can see the high amp items are separate from the other items such as outlets and fridge. They do this on purpose to increase battery life on a single charge when not moving or on shore power. Seems like it is working as intended - unless of course you think it worked before.
