"I ran the motorhome 30 minutes to charge it up".

Try 3 hours, or better yet six hours. 30 minutes is barley a surface charge I'm not at all surprised it's dead again.

I have charging problem with batts, all 3 new. Solonoid seems to be hot all the time. Is there a wiring diagram available somewhere? 2008 Seabreeze NRV SB34L Workhorse. Please.

Lots of good ideas here, every MH is different. My 04 charges both house and chassis from shore or generator. Check the light under the steps, is it staying on. Check the light under the hood, above the dipstick, is it "on". My chassis battery also was low last week for some reason, maybe I used the steps too many times.. still looking here..

Go figure

I appreciate the replies here, and especially interesting is this latest about the step light, I didn't know I had one. Clearly it is a dead bulb in there now I just have to figure how to get the cover off to change, I feel like I am going to rip the fixture off pulling on it, and can't get to it with a tool to pry off. Will work on that.

Any way.... MH has been in storage building for two weeks now and last night when I turned the key, started fine, volt meter showed plenty of voltage on chassis battery after sitting for 2 weeks. I suspect either I left something on the first time I had this happen, or something was "Hung up".

Thanks all will see what happens as time goes on.

There was a post about the step light last week. Something about using a screwdriver in a slot on the side of the light to pry the cover off.

Uh oh. I remember the same post as Dunner. Try the screwdriver in the slot trick.

Dolpins, at least in the era of mine did not come with twin beds (according to the brochures), yet mine did, go figure.

Is that `04 SB an LX? My buddy has an `04 LX on a WH and he says his doesn't. MY `04 non-LX does.
