we seem to have a slight problem....We have a 2005 KSDP 3910
While dry camping we experienced battery/ gen. problems>>>> lights started going dim Gen. stopped putting out power..... Checking batteries guess what no water, previous owners didn't check batteries...We just bought this Coach 2 week prior and never thought to check certain items that should have been checked by dealer.... We took it back to the dealer, and they fixed some things that were needed, and to fix our main problem, they replaced the coach batteries (4 new 6 volt batteries)-----------------well guess what we have had it (the coach) home now 1 week, plugged into a 50 amp shore line, and my wife went out to get some items off the coach and nothing would work no battery volts... I come home and checked some things {NOTHING} so I started the engine and guess what everything started working.....Ayone else had this mysterious problem Hmmmm?

You may need to put a battery charger on your new batts. The engine altenator puts a high charge on your batteries more than your converter will. Once they are fully charged you should be ok.
Congrats on your new Newmar many safe miles with it and welcome to the Newmar forum.
