Newbie Full Timers 6 weeks old

Hi all,

We left everything, got the MH and hit the road. Outside of a few small "challenges" with the MH, we've already seen things that we would've if we'd stayed in our stick house.

Where does a newbie go for technical tips and how to's? Our MH batteries are dead, even tho we've been plugged into 50 AMP for two weeks? We are now charging the batteries. Something is draining the battery somewhere. Thanks

What kind of RV do you have? Is there a power center to check charging and the inverter. Not charging while plugged in might be as simple as a popped breaker.

make sure your putting positive to positive and negative to negative. we had it backwards and it caused all kinds of issues, including that. the wires were the same color so check where they go to make sure which is which. we thought it was right because we had lights, microwave, fridge, etc... no AC. we thought it was a lemon or a bad convertor. it was our boo-boo. fixed the wire to the battery and replaced the fuse because it kept blowing them and presto. everything was working. (except the stove is half power)
