Help? PS-1 Not defaulting to subpanel with AC dropped

Very non-expert here!

When power is dropped, our system is set up to default to a subpanel of selected circuits that run off our batteries. This has always worked whenever the power went out or when I tested it by dropping the AC IN on the MATE.

Testing it today, I dropped the AC IN and our entire house was running off the batteries.
Is there a switch or setting that we may have changed?

PS-1 with
Outback GVFX 3648 Inverter
Outback MPPT Charge Controller - MX60
Outback Mate Remote Display/Control Panel
Outback Battery Rack and Enclosure with MK Batteries 8G31 Solar Gel, 98AHr/12 V
12 panels

Thanks!

Press the INV button that is on the right side of the Mate screen. Is the inverter set to ON or OFF?

What lights do you see on the inverter after you drop the AC input?

Thanks,
