Won't Start

My Charleston won't start even with the Alt start. Battery is too drained apparently. Tries to turnover but just not enough juice. Will running the generator charge the starter battery?

You've got to have battery power to start the genny also.

I don't know you actual coach however it has been my experience that the generator normally only recharges the coach batteries some may also recharge the starting battery. It may be that your starting battery is just to far gone I would test it to find out if it is any good.
