Generator battery dead and house batteries dead

I have a problem with my generator will start and run for a few seconds and then turn off.

The house batteries will not turn the house light on. After my last trip I turned the chassis batteries main disconnect off inside chassis battery compartment. I went back today and turned on the chassis disconnect and the batteries would not turn the house light on again. sounds like I have battery issue.

Anybody had this problem with their coach?

The generator won't start with low batteries. We haven't had that problem, sorry.

I wanted to see if the there might be something left on in the coach so I turned off both set of batteries to see if it was in batteries or house. Turned them back on and the interior lights will not cone on. the generator will not start either. I guess that is why since it starts off house batteries...

they are brand new. does not mean that they don't have a bad cell but I have 4. that would take a lot of draining to kill them.

Agreed. One bad battery can pull the others down.

I thought if I segregated the rest of the home from batteries it would help me diagnose issue. Chassis battery is for engine correct? I would assume it is.
