Not all MH's are built the same.
Did it charge them before?
If it did then they are a problem with the B.I.R.D relay.

Or maybe you don't have a B.I.R.D

Most likely the interconnect solenoid needs to be replaced. Does your start boost work? Call RV Custom Products to get the trouble shooting guide and documentation for your 12V Battery Control Center (BCC), they will email it to you. All National RV's have B.I.R.D on the BCC. The attached drawing shows which fuses feed various 12V items in the coach.
