2015 fleetwood storm electrical issue

Not sure where to start - just replaced the dead house batteries and changed out the stock converter -fan died- to a power max pm3-55 converter. Batteryís charges fine now when plugged into shore power and while driving. But when unplugged from shore I no longer have power to the rest of the house. ie: I canít run the water or turn on lights like I use too. No circuit breakers or fuses seem tripped or burned. Thanks you in advance for any insight on where to go from here.

Did you confirm battery charging at the battery with a volt meter ?

If you used the battery gauge on the inside panel, see if it shows charged while not on shore power.

Sounds like your house battery disconnect is not connecting.

Used to work. You changed stuff. Doesn't work now. Time to triple check your wiring and anything else you touched.

Yes while on shore power and while running both show itís charging on volt meter - but when unplugged n not running no juice running on either side of converter

Is the house battery disconnect - the solenoid looking thing beside the battery that makes a clicking sound when I turn the aux battery switch on and off?

Yes[/QUOTE]

Ok was finally able to get back to this - the house battery disconnect seems to be working fine. I have 12v on both sides when open n none when closed. Any ideas on what would be next in the line to check. Is there a breaker or fuse I might be able to check that I might not know about

Just found the problem - it was the inline breaker - it was a manual nub on the side - this is a link to what the inline breaker looks like n the nub on the side. Click here

Everything is working fine now!!!

Why not change it out to an automatic re-set type?

I would have to remove stuff to get to it - itís never popped before - pretty sure it only popped due to changing everything out (first post) - but I will if it becomes a continued problem. If itís not broke donít fix it.
