What is the best way to test each house battery? I have read some conflicting info about having to separate them from the each other and the coach in order to test them. Is that true?
Completely unrelated problem: I was getting prepared to open up the dash to get to the chassis battery and found an unwelcome sight. The wood piece under the plastic dash covering and computer desk was just covered in mold!
Lots of fun. DW did an initial cleanup and bleaching of the area, but now we have to pull up the dash vinyl to see how far it extends under there. I assume that moisture is coming up from below, so I will need to seal it better. I'm glad I caught it.
So was your issue, you put in Store mode thinking that is what you do when you intend to Store the RV, but for good extra precaution you hooked up Shore Power; but when you come back all batteries are dead?
If so; can someone tell me what is the purpose of Store mode, given the RV does not come with disconnect switch?
Should the Switch be called Use & Temporary Shutdown of most all power?
Thus far I have only used Store Mode when I was lazy and wanted to quickly turn everything off, or in few cases where I parked overnight someplace but not using the coach. I put in store mode so all was shutdown.
I think it defies logic that the concept of store does not allow for using the coach's charging systems.
