I just purchased a nicely kept 1997 Dynasty 36' ("Blue Thunder", we call it ), have already replaced the House 12v cutoff solenoid, and am continuing to test/fix other gremlins as we go.

I would greatly appreciate any wiring information that you may have regarding this coach. I will PM you my email to keep it away from the search bots.
The files section has wiring diagrams for 2001 Dynasty, so that may help.

I'm not sure if someone was stating that their generator did not charge the house batteries, but just to be sure. When working normally, the generator does charge the house batteries. There is also a small alternator on the generator that will charge the chassis battery slightly. When plugged into shore power, the chassis batteries are NOT charged. I put a trickle charger on them to maintain them.

Ah okay. I was responding to the earlier post from Cry42 "House batteries only charge when on Shore Power or with the engine running.".

I noticed a 3rd-party trickle charger mounted to the bottom of my engine compartment, now I understand why it's there (to charge the chassis batteries when plugged in to shore power).

What is the best plan for maintaining my batteries while the coach is in outdoor storage without access to power (other than the solar panel on the roof I guess)?

I'm thinking of pulling the coach battery and putting it on a maintainer in my garage on a shelf, and leaving the chassis batteries in place with the disconnect "off" in the engine compartment. But is that enough to keep them from draining over 3-6 months on non use?

I also have a 130w portable solar panel that I could connect to the chassis batteries to give them a more consistent, if weak, trickle charge.

sorry, No idea how the best way to maintain during long storage. I have always parked mine in my driveway and used to run an extension cord to it, but I finally wired in a true 50 amp plug for it. Really nice to be able to run the AC or whatever when you are working inside or packing/unpacking. Perhaps someone else will respond.
