While taking our MH out of storage yesterday we discovered our chassis batteries were dead even though all disconnects were used; house batteries were fine.
Called Coachnet and the first guy didn't make their 45 min. time so they sent a second. Second guy got there. He immediately attached his cables to the batteries and his welder. When he hit the power switch there was a loud "crack" from the dash area, everything went black (I had been getting dash lights after 2 hours of charging with generator), so loud I thought or windshield had blown out but the shade was also dead.
The first guy Coachnet had called showed up right then. Told him what happened; he asked what the gauge was saying the charge was and the gauge had pegged at 18. We instructed the first guy to take his cables off, got his card/name and asked him to leave.
By now we no longer have steps. New guy attached his cables, set them at 12 then increased it to 14, added a boost & we started right up.
Now we have no steps, no awnings, and don't know what other damage could have been done. We have begun a claim with Coachnet but need to continue with plans. Frankly, I'm leery about heading into the wilderness of Arizona & Utah.
We have checked the fuses we know but have found nothing wrong.
Has hidden irreparable damage been done?
Anybody have any hints of where fuses for steps & awning could be located???
