Thanks much! I can't get anything to work in this rv. I have no power to anything and it has new house batteries. I may just have to take it somewhere.

Looking at the first picture you posted the switch with the little battery is in the off position. turn this switch on should provide 12vdc to lights. When you are hooked up to shore power this switch has to be in the on (up) position to charge batteries.

over the stove on the vent hood should be some switches One for pump and one for turning on the battery check lights, tank one and tank two level lights. this runs off the chassis battery. It will give you the % of charge in the battery.

The switch will return to the down position did you turn on the switch with the little battery?

Do you know the location of the breaker panel it looks like this. The right side is 12 volt fuses

PS. is the chassis battery hooked up? does it have a battery disconnect switch?

Do you have a volt ohm meter?

Last question...can you hook up to shore power?

No that's what led to all the questions about buttons and my other posts about the new coach batteries.

Also the chassis battery is hooked up. I have driven it and no I can not hook up to shore power. I need to get an adapter to hook up to my house.

coach battery's two 12v deep cell batteries under the steps second step lifts up has nothing to do with the starting (chassis) battery

The coach battery runs everything inside Motor home. The button on the vent that lights up the lights for fill gauges tells me they are dead... or disconnected
