I agree completely and I think the logical procedure you suggested is a good place to start. I was just trying to figure out his actual symptoms without having to guess what he was talking about.

Rusty, I hope you meant to say your chassis batteries aren't being charged by the Magnum. If your house batteries aren't then you have a problem. The Magnum inverter/charger, by design and function charges the same batteries it uses for inverting.

If your RV doesn't have the ability to charge the chassis batteries, then you have 3 choices. To do what you have and leave a charger on the chassis batteries. I would recommend an intelligent or 3 stage charger. You can do nothing. Some RVs don't tap into chassis batteries for things you use when stopped. Most do tap into the chassis batteries for things like your dash radio, keyless entry, alarm system, and gas/smoke alarms. Finally, you can let the house bank charge the chassis batteries. Using a marine battery isolator is the right easy to go and it gives you a battery boost function built-in.

Or, you can repair the problem, since the '06 HR Endeavor was definitely designed to charge the chassis battery from shore/generator power.
