We are boondocking on solar but usually run the generator to fix dinner. I recently added a cell phone booster that is plugged into a 150 watt inverter. The coach does not have an inline inverter, only a converter.
All was acting normally until 3 days ago when I heard the inverter screaming. I unplugged it and forgot about it until I later plugged it back in. An hour later I tried starting the generator. All lights immediately blacked out. They slowly came back on after about 15 minutes.
To start the generator I had to start the engine first, then all was fine again. I thought maybe the inverter was causing the problem so tonight I unplugged it before hitting the generator switch. The generator still wouldn’t start.
I checked the water in the batteries. They are full. They are 3 years old and we are near Yuma, AZ where daytime temps are getting up into the high 80s.
Is this a battery problem or ?????
