If you want to use your Battery Tender to charge up the coach batteries: I'd just leave the switch in "Store" position, and hook them up.

My simple solution was to cut the red wire coming out of the BIRD and connect it directly to the left (as you are looking at it from the front) post of the Trombetta. The system worked perfectly after that.
Thank you very much sir but is there anyway you could email me those diagrams, too blurry to decipher.

Batteries are dead, main power light only illuminates when plugged into shore power. I checked breaker for converter and was okay, however when I switched it on/off it ran for a sec then shut off. Does this mean converter is shot?
Thanks

If the interior 12 volt lights work when on shore power, then your converter is supping the necessary current. That the master (main) power light illuminate on shore power, also indicates the converter is working properly.

Have you checked the 50 amp breaker in the coach battery box (left hand, rear in the Axis 24.1) you should not seee the yellow or red flag. Push the button and reset the flag an see if that works,

How do you know the converter ran and shut off?

The cooling fan only runs when the converter requires it due to the load it is supplying.
