Default Onan microquiet 4000 fault code 32 problem

I had a problem on my generator this past trip. I accidentally turned on my inverter while the generator was still plugged into the trailer, the generator was not running at the time but still plugged into the system. As a result my inverter fried and now my generator will not start. It starts for about 3 seconds if i keep the start button pressed but then dies and flashes fault code 32. So I must have fried something in the gen as well. Oil is fine and battery connections are good, thats all the help i got from the operation manual. Anyone have an actual service manual that has test procedures for this code and particular model. Or just some help on what to test. Thanks in advance. John.

Default Onan microquiet 4000 fault code 32 problem

Ok, so i did some testing according to a troubleshooting guide and this is what i found. I have no AC output during the few seconds that it will run. Next the guide said to check the field flash for proper 12VDC . I could not find an accurate description for checking this but I did find that the field flash is F1 and F2, is this correct? If so i followed the wiring diagram and it shows those wires going to P1-1 and P1-10 on the control board. I tested from chassi ground to P1-1 and had no voltage while it was running or cranking, also ground to P1-10 and same readings. If this is correct, the manual says its a bad control board. Any thoughts on this or any more things to check?

Thanks, John.
