Charging Batteries

I have a 2004 Monaco Cayman, drove it to Florida and back, with no problems. Came home hooked up to 50amp power went to move it a month later and chassis batteries were down. I thought when plugged in both house and chassis batteries were being charged? This is a new rig for us I may have turned something off please straighten me out thanks.

Some coaches only charge the house batteries and some have an echo charger that charges the chassis batteries after the house is fully charged so you will need to add something like this.
How long have you had this coach?

Hope this helps.

If you are new to this coach you need to check if the trailing arms have been addressed
