I purchased a used 2004 Fleetwood Southwind so I'm afraid I don't have some of the manuals available and I'm a little new to the RV experience. Here's my dilemma: My RV has been in storage for a couple of weeks and I didn't bother to use the battery disconnects for the Main and Aux batteries. I tried to start the RV in preparation for a weekend trip (starting tomorrow!) and the engine won't start. Lights on the dash come on but I get a clicking sound and a beep from the back of the coach, where the fuse box is. I've tried disconnecting the coach main and aux batteries but no luck. It doesn't appear to be the RV battery because driving lights come on and the radio works fine.
Now, when I test the main battery level, it reads 14-16 (units?) but I no reading at all for the aux level. So I'm thinking the aux battery is dead. But would this keep me from starting the engine?
I'm hoping the problem is that I'm forgetting to do something prior to starting the engine; like forgetting to set the parking brake before trying to open a slide. Any ideas as to what may be the problem is greatly appreciated.
