Your inverter charges your house batteries. When the inverter sees 120VAC then it turns on its battery charging side and starts charging. It should continue to provide a "float" charge at minimum as long as the coach is on shore power.

You will probably need some help. Running your problem down. If you bought from a dealer, he should help you trouble shoot. Holiday Rambler is now owned by REV Group and they will also provide tech support. Try 877-466-6226. Sounds like your inverter is not functioning. Could be as simple as a fuse or circuit breaker.

Have you checked the Ac power to your converter? It could be something as simple as a tripped gfci.

House batteries don't charge.

Could be 1 of 2 different problems. That year HR probably has a Heart Interface 1000 watt inverter with a built in battery charger. There is an internal fuse that could be blown or the charger could be failed. If the fuse is not blown then it has been my experience that a person is better off replacing the inverter/charger.

The other problem could be with a battery charge switch that Monaco used back about the time they built your coach. It will be located on the right rear frame rail beside the engine and is called "Keep it up". Those are known to fail and if that is what you have it is overdue. They are a potted electronic package and are most easily replaced with an item known as the Tric L Start.
