Ditto....Glad to hear that others have the same issue. Lights dim with voltage drop. Equalizes after a couple of minutes. I do keep my batteries charged with battery tenders.

Gas man, just wondering why you use a battery tender? I had an issue with my chassis batteries dying after a few weeks if sitting and when I spoke with forest river, they told me that the magnum inv/charger charges both your house batteries and chassis batteries. There is a solenoid that switches the charger from your house batteries to your chassis batteries once the house are full. Mine was not connected properly when installed so it was fixed. Not sure of your year or set up, but you may want to look into that.

JTN8. Thanks. I've got '14. I know about using the inverter, but figure that the less time used on coach systems, the longer it will last. Bad part is that I am using 2 tender jrs. and 4 tenders. They do work well, though.

They do work we'll!! Mine is a 14 too but when the chassis batteries weren't charging off the inverter/charger, I was using a tender plus, worked great but if I wasn't using it my chassis batteries would be low after about three weeks!!!
