If I want to go boating I would rather get on my way forward than reverse out.

I use wire wool of a file.


If you have a multi meter you could test the voltage at the 12v inverter side.


Also I would not test the 240v with the microwave as it draws too much power.


Any problems I have had like this with my inverter I always get it working again by stripping all the batteries down and clean all the terminals and lugs/connectors and when its all wired back up with everything tight it works again.

Check your connections on both battery and inverter sides.


Maybe you have bad connections and a good clean of them might fix it.

Before anyone goes down the R/C route I would suggest you check your insurance. 


I'mi insured with Saga and when I received my last renewal it included a policy endorsement along the lines that someone had to be on the boat whenever it was underway. I remember it specifically because I boat singlehanded and often pull the boat in and out of locks.





I would have a cctv cameras round my boat and sit in front of the fire driving my boat on the tv while been nice and warm.
