Charging circuit question

Hi all, I'm posting this for a person that is not a member here. I thought maybe I could help him get his question answered this weekend so he didn't have to wait until Monday to call Fleetwood. He has a 1999 Bounder 34J. Thanks for any help.

It appears that my engine start battery is not charging when plugged into 120 power or on the generator. The coach batteries are charging OK. Voltage at the battery today was 12.08 when plugged in or running off the generator. The engine started fine and the alternator is charging just fine. The battery is full of water and tests OK after a charge. The RV has been sitting for about 2 weeks without running the engine, but it has been plugged in or on the generator the entire time. The generator has been run for a couple of hours almost every other day. It was told to me that the converter/charger charges both the coach batteries and the engine battery when plugged in. Any suggestions on where to start troubleshooting? 1999 Bounder 34J on a Ford chassis with V10 engine. Chuck

There's already a post on this same issue, which has been replied to several times.

Thanks Rockwood. Can you give me any idea what it may be under as far as a heading? I'll do a search but it might be helpful to know how to search.

It's so weird being the same age as old people.

I answered all your questions in the linked thread. The Bounder chassis battery should charge along with the house batteries from shore power.

Let me know if you need detailed help in locating the problem.
