Getting House Battery to Charge
 
I have a 2017 Outlaw 29h and i drained the house batteries while storing.

since then i have been plugged in to a 30 amp overnight and a 120v house line for 2 days with no progress and drove over over 3 hours.

when I have rv unplugged and test battery level on main board on wall there is not one light on.

i have my house switch in "use," checked water levels in batteries, checked the 3 little breakers under my house door on passenger side and I'm out of trouble shooting steps. I looked for a battery control center in my engine bay with no success in locating.

all equipment works when generator running or on shoreline.

thanks in advance!

Have you checked the Invertor? Maybe its breaker has tripped. If you have inline breakers off the battery make sure those are not tripped also. Make sure power is getting to the Invertor.

Interesting. The generator starts on the coach batteries, which sez they have voltage. What does your invertor say for voltage? Best place to start is read your batteries directly with a volt meter. If they have voltage (12 volts plus) then I would check the use/store relay. It is located behind the power distribution panel. You can get to it by removing the drawer directly above it.

Thanks for the help! I have 3 little yellow switches just by the house batteries, all tested. the Inverter hasn't tripped, i pushed it in.

this am when dry dock with engine running the inverter shows 14.1 flowing in. so this is way better than 12.8 from yesterday. i think that is a good sign of charging?
