I was there a few weeks earlier and went through the same process. Can you do me a favor and check something on your LADP.

On my coach, when I take it off 50amp services, the house batteries are around 13.1 but the chassis battery is 12.8.

The chassis battery should be higher in my opinion and it will kick on the generator as the threshold for the chassis battery to charge is 12.8. I had to move it to a lower number so it just doesn't kick on in 5 mins.

I think the chassis battery may not have been looked after and during the build and store process.

I can tell you if you run the slide out in a few times without the gen on it will drop to voltage in the 11's and then settle in the low 12's. Doesn't seem right to me.


I have not looked at the battery voltage after coming off of shore power. I did check the voltage with engine running and both chassis and house were 13.6 VDC. The charge bridge solenoid connects the two sets of batteries when the voltage drop below a certain level. I don't remember that voltage, but somewhere around 12.9

Our tech did say that when we move the slides that we need to be on shore or generator power. There is a large power draw moving these slides.

I agree with Canuck53. Problem known, problem resolved.
