Thanks everyone. I will check the batteries later today. Hopefully everything will be okay if not on to the converter or the battery switch.

That is the maintenance charging level. The battery should be around 12.6 when not being charged and after a couple of hours for the surface charge to dissipate.

Nope, not any that I've had. 13.2 is float voltage, not battery voltage. At rest voltage, best I've seen is 12.7.

The under cabinet radio was on. Turned that off and everything seems to be getting back to normal. While battery charging volt meter reads 13.29. I am heading up to Canada next week and wasn't sure that I wanted to go if I hadn't figured this electrical issue out. This trip will be our first into Canada, first full week with no hookups. Plus will be towing car and kayaks and bikes. I will be disconnecting the shore power and checking the battery fluid just to make sure my battery's are okay. Thanks for all the help don't know what without this web site.
