Solar is working fine.

Weekend of trouble shooting

Looks like I need to retrieve the RV from storage and do a lot of trouble shooting. Thanks for all the replies.

Found the problem or problems. Looks like my rig was vibrating apart. I went to the generator and found the 12v from the house battery was missing,. When I started the rv, 13v appeared at the generator, then when I turned it off, the 12v was there. Really weird.

Started at the 2 6v house batteries, checked all the connections. All good

Generator still would not start

Opened the hood and started checking the contactors

Voila. . . Problem located. Of the 4 connections at the contactors 3 were 2 1/2 turns loose and the others finger tight on the battery connections. In addition, the contactor control lines were loose. Further investigation located 4 or 5 other bad connections. Tightened everything I could find loose and now every single electrical weirdness I had is gone.

Big note her. This coach is a 2001. I know the original owner. This rig has 15k miles on it and I found all the crap connections. Check your rig, you might be surprised what you find.

Thanks for every bodies input
