Default Power inverter Won't work

I used to use my power inverter all the time to charge my Iphone, but switched to the 12v outlet because it works when the truck is turned off. I tried to use it again last week and although the light turns on indicating its on i get no power from the outlet. Anybody have any idea what might be causing this. I checked the fuse box and the fuse is fine. The manual says the inverter will protect itself when too much power is drawn but doesn't say anything about a reset button or procedure.
Anybody have any info about this?

There's probably a fuse in the inverter's tip. See anything that unscrews?

UMMMM

If i remember correctly

the inverter is mounted on the passenger seat frame, just under the cushion on a bucket seat Ram, it is right at the front of the seat
It may be located in the center of a bench type seat

look at post number 2, made by RamTech
