Inverter damage

Hi. I have a 2000w Trail Boss inverter and have been using it with no problems connected to a 12V 105AH battery. Just to run a light or two and the router during load shedding. I upgraded my batteries to 2x 218AH Li batteries. Then I hooked the cable that is a second power source to the house DB (via a selector switch) onto the inverter and slowly brought up the load. Just lights and a fridge and the garage doors and all was well. Then suddenly the power went off. I estimate that I was no more than 1000W load at the time. Now the inverter has a ticking sound and if I plug just single light bulb in the light flickers in time with the tick - 2 or 3 times a second. Any ideas of what has gone wrong here? Many thanks for any advice.

Hi Haig, I have exactly the same issue. Same inverter as yours but connected to 2x105's in parallel. Also the same victron charger. Inverter worked for a couple of days and then started the ticking story as well. I didn't change anything or put any big load on either.
