Hi, I am new to trailers so pardon my question. We checked the water levels and the battery power and the battery check lights have stayed on. Is this an issue? Or will it turn off eventually? Or do we have to disconnect the battery to make the lights go off? Thanks in advance!

That's not normal. Is there any chance the button you pressed to check battery level merely stuck in?

The button still clicks so it does not seem stuck. Should we be concerned or is it just stuck lights?

I'd try unhooking from shore power and the battery temporarily and then hooking the battery back up and see if it works normally. I suspect there's a problem with the panel, but it'd be worth a little troubleshooting.

My hubby stopped in at the dealer and asked him about this issue. He said that if you hold the battery check button down for more than 5 seconds it will stay on.

It is no longer staying on and we no longer hold it down for more than a couple of seconds!

Thanks for letting us know that. I had no idea that holding the button down latched it on.

Does it eventually go off on it's on or is there a sequence to turn it off. Like holding the button down again.

I don't think there is a way to turn it off . . .we disconnected the battery.

Thanks for sharing. Never knew this, and I will be testing mine when I get home.
