Let me guess--you have an automatic system and an inverter/charger? What happened is that the relay "stuck" on the converter side--so the inverter was trying to charge the batteries that it was drawing energy from. Perpetual motion is *such* an expensive business! LOL

Our inverter "failure" was strange.
We are fulltimers. We have a 2000 watt whole-house inverter and four golf cart batteries. A few weeks ago we lost shore power, and our generator kicked on in about 20 minutes. That's odd because I have it set to come on when the batteries drop to 11.8 volts, and we didn't have any big loads running at the time.
After an hour or so of troubleshooting I found that there was a big DC load someplace that was quickly drawing down the batteries. I power cycled the inverter from its remote, and the problem went away.
