Re: When to hire a pro...

Might as well do the basic checks first... like is there 12V power reaching the inverter?

Does the inverter have a breaker? Check that 12V is entering it, and leaving it when it's on!

The best book for an intro to marine electrics that I know of is this one, and it covers other aspects of inspection and maintenance too :

This books is kind of the key chapters from all his books rolled into one. If you JUST want electrics, there's this :
