Winnebago Boldt wonít charge

A friend of mine has a brand new Winnebago boldt. It is his first ever RV. I am very familiar with RVís but this one has me stumped. The Volta battery system seems to be 100% dead. I have the RV plugged into my 30-amp RV outlet at my house. Nothing appears to be happening. I donít know if there is a defect in the system, or if there is something stupid like a switch needs to be turned on. The dealer he bought from is not local, and has not been helpful. Please help. Thank you.

Most inverter/chargers will not wake up a dead battery to begin charging. You must first hook up a stand-alone charger and get the battery/battery bank to at least a 10% charge level. Then you may disconnect the stand-alone and resume charging with the inverter/charger.

Is that true of the lithium Volta system? My understanding is that system is only accessible by trained technicians. Itís not like a regular battery bank that you can throw jumper cables on.

OK, that's different. I have no knowledge of LIPo battery charging systems.
Now I know something about the Travato Volta though, and understand why the 48V battery is off-limits to owners.


EDIT: This old thread may be useful: https://www.winnieowners.com/forums/...ng-361478.html
That is a sub-website of irv2.com Winnebago Owners forum..

Thanks! Problem is solved. The Pure3 Volta does not play nice with surge protectors. I removed the surge protector and it fixed the issue. I have a simple surge protector, but for some reason the volta didnít like it.
