Xantrek Inverter and Remote and Lightning

I had a direct lightning hit. VHF. wind instruments, SSB, AIS, auto pilot, etc. I have some into a marina for repairs. I am in South East Asia at the moment, should have been in Africa by now so it has been a set back obviously. My inverter is still working, but then remote for it is not working, when plugged in with basically the telephone cable, the remote gets hot enough to fry an egg off, so I unplug that cable, but if I unplug the remote cable from the inverter, it switches off, that cable in not even plugged into anything not the remote, but i unplug it, the inverter switches off. Got me beat. Any ideas out there?

Re: Xantrek Inverter and Remote and Lightning

every inverter I have seen will work without a remote. often there is buttons on the inverter as well.

Re: Xantrek Inverter and Remote and Lightning

Thanks for reply. This is an old one. Freedom 2kv. It doesn't switch off unless I unplug remote. Remote doesn't work. It's a new remote as well. So even though remote doesn't work, if I uplug it from the inverter, that shuts it dowm

Re: Xantrek Inverter and Remote and Lightning

If it is one if these. There are charge and invert buttons on the top left. To turn each function on and off with no remote.

If that does not work. I guess it’s fried.

They don't work. Lightning does funny things. Still working with remote cable in though. I figure may just keep going like that till it does completely. probably not far off of it. Cheers
