2015 Kodiak Inverter

Does anyone know the location of the inverter in a 2015 Kodiak? My battery isn't charging and the 12v only runs on the battery. The breaker and fuses all seem to be ok. Thanks

Your power converter should be behind the fuse panel.

Is it integrated into the panel or a separate unit? I didn't see it under the sink.

Converter/Charger or Inverter/Converter/Charger

Here is a possible troubleshooting path for a converter/charger.
If you have an inverter/charger/converter, there is a whole different set of possibilities.

Plug into shore power. Test that 115 volts is available in the TT by running a 115 volt appliance.

Disconnect the battery.
Do 12 volt appliances and lights work?

If "no", converter/charger is not working.

My 2018 Kodiak Cub has a WFCO 30 amp all in one converter/charger, service panel. All of these functions are in one plastic box mounted in a cabinet.

There is one circuit breaker dedicated to the WFCO converter/charger. You said it is working OK. I assume you turned it off and back on again to reset it.

There are two fuses in the fuse panel that could interrupt charging. A 30 amp main and a 40 amp reverse polarity fuse. Either of them could shut down battery charging. Continuity check is the definitive test for a fuse. Appearances can be deceiving.

You said 12 volt appliances and light work from battery so a battery disconnect switch or disconnected or loose battery wire are not the problem.

Failing these easy tests, a deep dive into the converter/charger is warranted.

Some TT's have a service panel separate from the converter/charger. The converter/charger is likely to be inside a cabinet near the service panel. The converter/charger may be in an electrical service bay. Fuses and breakers can be anywhere in the wiring system.

Also, the converter has a fan, that is audible. If it is recharging your batteries, you may hear the fan running, but the fan does not run continuously.
