Cabin battery isn't charging

I recently had my 2011 2300 Sunseeker in for routine engine service and had them check cabin batteries. All seemed Ok and it has been sitting plugged in since then, about 2 weeks. I noticed today that the cabin batteries are very low. The cutoff switch is On and the RV is plugged in to 110. Where do I start looking? I am a novice at this.

Our 2012 Solera will occasionally trip the circuit breaker that the converter is powered through when I connect it to shore power. Try flipping all the circuit breakers off, then on to reset them. Then check battery on your convenience panel - with converter on (plugged in to shore power and getting electricity) convenience panel should show four lights ("charging").

Thank you! I don't think I have a convenience panel but I know where the breakers are and will follow your advice. Thanks again for helping.

Ok. Some friends flipped breakers, checked fuses...all OK. Checked cabin batteries...both dead. They were bought at Sams in summer of 2013 and I have kept water level (distilled) up.

Just curious. You say you don't have a convenience panel. How did you determine the batteries were low and now are dead?

Low was indicated by very dim overhead lights and fridge giving "check" lite when I tried to start it.

Dead was determined by volt meter.

Then you must not be connected to 110 anymore, correct?

It's connected and microwave lite is on and bright. I'm guessing this indicates there is power coming in, just not thru 12 volt system.

Then you appear to have an issue with your converter. You should have good 12 volts to unit when plugged into shore power from converter and the converter also charges your house battery at the same time.
