Check your water level in the batteries by looking in them, the auto fill system is not fail safe . my batteries were bad when I bought my coach new due to not being filled by auto system. also, if you can also run the fridge on propane to see if it is the problem drawing power.

Hi Alex,

I found on my 2000 that most of the 120v electrical connections to the breakers were very loose. In my case I was blowing fuses in the Alpine on small loads. Unplug the coach from 120v, take off the cover to the fuses and tighten them up. This probably won't help your current problem but should prevent some other problems down the road.

Just brought the coach home from the dealer. I was told they replaced one bad 6V battery. They also said the bad battery was drawing down the others. The other minor problems I found were fixed also.
Thanks for all the ideas !!!

We had the same problem even when setting the charge rate down to 5AMP. Found the culprit to be an outside porch light that was on the same circuit. Turned off the light, made sure nothing else was sharing the power and solved the problem.
