I have no idea if these issues are related, wwhere to start looking. Any thoughts appreciated.
At 11.2 volts, your coach batteries are 'dead'...
To charge (with any of genny, shore power, or chassis engine) the use/store switch must be in USE position.
When you say 'If I tried to run anything 12v in coach all 12 v shuts off,' - is this with the genny running??
With genny running (or on shore power) - the converter would be providing 12v to the coach... A bad converter could explain the not charging as well.
To test converter - disconnect the coach batteries, and measure the output of the converter with a voltmeter (with genny/shore power) Should be around 13v...
Search the forum for threads on genny turing off while driving... Several are having that issue - suspecting overheating.
