Dead chassis battery

Been parked float charging for 2 months. Went to start it and had to use Battery Boost. It was completely dead and wouldn't even work the gauges. I have one battery switch in the battery bay and it is on. The terminals are all clean and tight. What gives?

Assuming you mean float charging with the onboard convertor/charger that charges the coach batteries. And assuming it used to charge the chassis battery. Your isolation relay or the circuits that control it (B.I.R.D) have failed. You will find a lot of discussion on this forum about it. Search BIRD or battery. If you have a seperate battery charger hooked up, Then your draw is more than the output, or your battery is bad.

Verify the operation of the Echo Charger. If you can't find your manual, you can read it here http://www.xantrex.com/documents/Acc...4-01-01%29.pdf

My chassis battery went stone dead and it was only 3 years old.

dead batteries

Not sure what year your CC is but my 94 Affinity has separate chassis and domestic batteries. When plugged into 110v. it does not charge the chassis batteries even with the switch on., I turn the switch off and trickle charge the two 8d chassis batteries. My domestics are kept up by solar panels directly to the batteries. I'm thinking of using a directional switch to use the solar to charge either domestic or chassis batteries. Check your manuals if you have them.
