2005 Signature - Aladdin shows house battery and solar at 0

I saw it after putting a slide out. Coach is plugged into shore power. Batteries are all 2021. Refrigerator, microwave cabin lights all working. Xantex over drivers seat says "system status float charging" and the charge light is blinking, Battery Full light is solid.

Is there a fuse I should check and if there is, where is it?

Thanks for any advice.

It could be a faulty Aladdin module. I had one go out (the one that reported AC power and solar charging). My Aladdin modules are located in the Bay on the passenger side where the black/grey tanks are located (shown in photo).

I got a new (used) one from Visone Rv https://rvelectronics.visonerv.com/cgi-bin/welcome.pl?

The only thing I can think is to check fuses in the electrical bay (driver side in front of wheel).

I don't see Aladdin modules where CountryB indicated but maybe they're somewhere else in that bay. I'd like to know myself as both yours and mine are likely in the same place. Hope someone with an 05+/- Sig chimes in on this; I'd like to know too.

My 2007 Signature has an Aladdin "DC Interface" module P/N 380400 above the 2nd bay ceiling cover. The Heliotrope Solar Controller is also there as well as some other Aladdin parts, Tank Interface, etc.

Do you have the Aladdin Manual?

Must be a glitch in Aladdin.

It mysteriously started showing solar and house batteries charged up this morning. That was nice. I didn't do anything. There's always something. Today the cruise control stopped. I'm hoping when I'm on the road tomorrow it'll mysteriously start again.


Thanks for all the advice and I'll keep in mind about replacing the monitor.

Just a guess, but it's sounding like a bad ground or a loose/corroded connection.

Thanks, Rick

Someday, somewhere I'll find a place to have everything checked out especially all the electricals.
