Has this happened to anyone?

I have the Freedom 20 inverter/charger with the zantrex display panel on my boat. Recently we were at Cape Lookout for a few days and needed to charge the batteries so I plugged in the Honda 2000 and ran it for about an hour. During this run time I was looking at the display and saw it blink off for a second or two and then come back on. I didn't think much about it at the time. After we put the generator away alittle while later I noticed the inverter was on. I pressed the on/off button on the display to turn it off. About 20 minutes later it turned itself back on. This occurred every now and then for the rest of the trip. Anyone have this experience? I have tried resetting the system only to have it turn on again as well as a re-boot of the system by disconnecting the shore and 12V power to it and then putting back online. Again after awhile it turns itself back on. Anything else I can try before I have to take it out and send it off to be serviced?

Yes there must be gremlins. I believe I will try and get rid of them myself before I give her to someone else. You are the first on the list though if I do.

I believe that inverter has an automatic setting that will provide AC, if shore power is disconnected. That feature may be malfunctioning. I would disable it anyway.
