Help with battery issue for ACE 29.3

The last 2 times we've camped, we came home and plugged up the motorhome. However, for some reason, the house batteries were dead when we went on our next trip. I don't understand why they would be depleted since it was plugged in 24/7. Does anybody have any ideas? Also, what about the "Store" button on control panel, would that have anything to do with this problem?

Did you come home and switch it to "Store" mode before plugging in?

When in "Store" mode it doesn't charge the house batteries.

If the issue does not exist while plugged into campground shore power and you only have the problem while plugged in at home then check your home shore power circuit and connections.

I'd check the "store" switch no matter what. I inadvertently hit my "store" button instead of putting the awning out. It was quick and I thought my finger had slipped off. A few days later my batteries were dead but the awning worked because I was plugged in to shore power. Now I'm very careful not to come anywhere close to the "store" button..........

Do you know if the batteries were being charged while you were camping?

If you were weekend camping the batteries could have been charged while traveling and lasted until they were charged again while traveling home.

Can you check the converter output voltage and the battery voltage while being plugged in? The converter voltage should be between 13+ and 14+ depending on your converter. The battery voltage should be pretty much the same.
