Not charging auxiliary battery

I am a new owner of a 2005 Bounder and I have a lot to learn. Currently it is is my driveway hooked up to 110 V, 15 amp shore line for the last two days. The auxiliary batries are not being charged. I took it for a one hour drive and they were still not charged. Can someone give me some ideas on where to start troubleshooting. The Freedom 458 inverter/charger is flashing on the charge light and flashing on the low battery light.

Not to sound too simple but check you don't have your battery disconnect switch off.

The blinking charge light indicates no 110v AC is available to the 458.
Check the AC breaker to the 458. It should be a 30 amp breaker.

Do you have a remote panel for the 458? There is a Charge button there.
Most RV batteries live a long and useful life, some are murdered.

Hose battery not charge

To Start check the wall switch that switch should be on, and as the others saying check for any cut-off switch close to batteries,and last check the batteries with a meter to see if they are not charged already.
Hope to solve the problem is simple but needed.

Good luck
