Xantrex Panel Won't Come On

During my battery issues in Moab I decided to turn the Xantrex control panel off. I held the power button until it powered down. Now I can't get it to come back on.

I'm at my house and verified shore power and ground (nothing has changed). I've tried:
Plugged to shore power
Unplugged from wall, unplugged from van
Van Breakers on/off
Batteries separated (12.0 house)
Batteries connected (12.4 combined)
I've checked the connections at the Invertor and nothing seems to be amiss.

The blue sky monitor underneath it is working, and it's always been on since I got it installed. Is there a trick to getting the panel to power on?

Re: Xantrex Panel Won't Come On

Well, I was looking at google images to try to determine which model I have and lo and behold there is a control panel, power and reset buttons right on the invertor. Never knew that, partially because mine is 90% covered by the seat bracket and cabled wires.

Using the image as reference I managed to punch the reset button by feel and it's working.

FYI....for what it is worth, that is the model that we could not get to work correctly. We tried two different units, and ended up giving up on it. The problem was definitely with the inverter, and the problem was we could not get it to work in power-sharing with the gen to run the Danhard AC.
