Well, and now for the dumbest question. Where is the engine battery located on our coach? A year ago I replaced the 2 coach and 1 generator batteries located under the entrance steps but did not notice any other battery. I do not see any battery on the front of the rig. Surely the 2 batteries under the steps do not do double duty.

This spring we have changed out to synthetic tranny fluid, installed Roadmaster anti-sway bar, Bilstein shocks and now replacing a delaminated slide topper, all in prep for summer travel next couple of months. I am thinking the engine battery might be due to at least check. Your help is always appreciated.

The battery you called the generator battery is the chassis battery. It is the one towards the front of the motorhome.

The 12 Volt battery is the starter battery for the motor home's motor plus I believe it is also the source of power to start the generator. The two 6 Volt batteries are the house D.C. power source. you shoould be ready to go, have fun.

All gensets that I have seen get starting power from the coach battery. That is done to seperate the start systems.

I agree with Kirk. If you have your coach battery disconnect switch turned off the genset will not crank.
