Need help with house batteries.

The 1990 Winnebago we just picked up needed new house batteries, nothing would run with them and the dash meter showed on 10.5 volts, so I fugured they were shot and bought new ones. I installed the new pair and I have a new problem. Not only does nothing work as before, now the meter shows zero volts. I hooked the cables up correctly and in parallel so that's not the problem. With a volt meter across the batteries I get 12.7 volts so the batteries are in good shape. I turned nothing on or off so I'm not sure where the problem could be. Anyone have any idea's?

Check for a disconnect switch. Could be near the batteries or under the entrance stairs. If all else fails call Winnebego and ask them. I'm sure someone on here will have the exact answer.

Good Luck

Just for the heck of it I plugged in the shore line. I hit the aux battery switch and it kicked in. I cut off the shore power and every thing looks ok now. I'll check it later and see if holds. Not sure what happened. I appreciate the help, the last camper we owned was an 11 foot 1967 truck camper in the back of my pickup. This is a whole different breed of animal and I'm still trying to figure out where every thing is.
