Question Lo DC code on Norcold refrigerator

We just had all 5 of our batteries replaced in our 2007 Winnebago vectra. Now we are getting a code, lo dc. The fridge seems to be working okay. But why the code?

All 12 volt batteries or 1, 12 volt and 4, 6 volt ?

If you have 4- 6 volt batteries, take a picture of the cabling. We may be able to pick out a mistake in wiring causing the low voltage.

So could this code be left over from when the batteries were replaced? It certainly saw a Low DC then. Otherwise check the voltage on the house batteries; they may actually be low.

So we figured it out this morning. We woke up to no refrigerator power and no Lights In the The house, even though we were plugged into electric. . The indicators said the house batteries were fine and the engine batteries were at 6.2 volts, but the engine started with no problem. We looked at the batteries that were just replaced and found one positive cable that was not attached to anything. We took a picture and sent it to Freightliner who replaced the batteries last week, but he couldn’t tell were it went so he was going to send someone out. (That is great service because we are 250 miles from home). I did a search on you tube on how to replace batteries to see if I could figure it out, and it said to draw a diagram to make sure you know where to put all the cables back. Well when I drew it out I could tell from the pattern where the one was missing. We put it on, it started charging right away. And then it said the house batteries were low, not the engine like it said before. we called Freightliner back and cancelled the call he told us to come back in when we return home to make sure everything is okay and he can write up a not so good progress report on the guy that worked on it. But thank you for your response.

Wiring schematics are important. Today I viewed the installation manual wiring schematic for my inverter/charger. The battery temperature sensor has been on the wrong battery bank since I bought the MH.
