Accelerator fuel pedal dead, & voltage issues.

The accelerator pedal does not respond. Engine running, press the pedal, no increase or change in RPMs. Pedal moves, but nothing responds. The connector at the pedal has 6 wires. Where do they go, any fuses in line, or other sensors.
Great place to be, just starting to head south, stuck in a truck stop, and a weekend with no services.
Side note, I am doing well to keep by chassis batts at 12v. Alt doesn't seem to charge them, when idling. Ran gen 4 hrs, no increase in voltage on chassis side, sounds like a bad batt separator, (sure power 1315-200). Our transmission has a L-70 fault, probably lo volt. SO I bought new chassis batts, and none of these problems improved. Oh, did I mention Silverleaf and Xantrex.
If I had the fuel pedal and tranny, I think I could limp into Yakima, Cummins or Smith Auto Elec.

Ed and Diane,

That sounds awful and I don't know the exact cause. But, for all Alpine electrical problems, I've heard that turning off both battery master switches for approx. 30 seconds, then back on, will cure many electrical problems. With the engine off, turn off both battery switches, then back on, then restart the engine and see if anything has improved. It is an easy enough thing to try and doesn't cost anything.

Good Luck!

Problem solved, thank you. Negative wire to wrong post. I should not wire batteries after dark. Another for good measure.

Another thing to like about the Alpine. WRV chose smart components. The coach would not let you proceed until you fixed the issue it didn't particularly care for. I like that.

Good thing I didn't offer any technical advice. It wouldn't have been that.

I guess our first question should always be "and what did you do before it stopped working?"
