Sounds like the coach batteries were dead because you posted the surge protector was tripped so no power was probably going to the converter to charge the coach batteries. The chassis battery is not charged by the coach converter but by the alternator on the engine when it is running. It is a good idea to put a battery tender charger on the chassis battery if it is going to set idle for long periods. Depending on what type of drains are on the chassis battery and the size of the battery it could last from a week to months.
