Do you have a Xantrex inverter/charger with the little Echo Charge gizmo in the battery compartment? If so, the Echo charge is designed to do just what you want. My Echo charge died so I replaced with with a Trik-L-Charge and it works like a charm.

Thanks ever one for your responses. Guess I should have mentioned that the coach is 36'.
Inside the front bay of the coach is a forward facing cover that gives access to the electrical compartment, with inverter/charger and all the fuses and circuit breakers. In that compartment is what I believe to be the BIRD. The relay is engaged and voltage is equal on both sides but still no charge to the chassis batteries. With out a wiring print, it's hard to decipher what cables and wires go where. I did find a large 3 pole isolator diode in the electrical compartment, which I find strange for a coach of that era. It had the normal 0.3 volt drop across the terminals.
The electrical compartment is a work of art, with very large cables going to the batteries in the back/left side of the coach.
