This may be something you have already tried and very basic, but many campgrounds have a breaker on the plug receptacle.... but make sure your shore power is actual getting power. Check shore power breakers are on.

You can expect your coach batteries to discharge over time. Depends on what is still on. Even with the switch in the doorway turned off there is still a drain on the batteries. Propane detector, CO detector, smoke detector still remain on and drawing power. The main culprit will be the inverter. Keep it turned off until you need it to perform it's duties. Just turned on but not powering anything will still use considerable power. Won't take long for the batteries to die. When you are not on shore power, don't turn on the inverter until you need 120 volts for something.

The only way to keep the batteries from discharging is to disconnect the negative terminal while in storage. This will stop all the parasitic drains from discharging them. Of course, the detectors and everything else will not work while disconnected. Only disconnect them if stored for extended times.

Mark

I was reading through your thread like a novel. Waiting for the solution to your charging/power problem to be revealed. And the solution was....Drum roll.....??

I recieved info from a member, that there was a red reset button on the side of my inverter/charger...after looking for the button for 5 minutes, it turned out it was not red but the same color as the inverter shell....I pushed it and everything worked as it should...sorry didnt get back with you sooner, getting ready to put into winter storage....Cant wait for spring!
