Battery not charging

We have a brand new 2016 Tracer 2750 rbs and the battery will not charge. We are at a campground and plugged into 30 amp. No 6 volt power. Please help

Check battery cut off switch if you have one. Check two 40A fuses in converter. They are usually orange in color. They will blow if the battery is very low and the unit is connected to shore power or if the battery is connected reversed. Do any of the 12V things work ( ie all lights are 12V)? Power in the Tracer is either 120V AC for AC, microwave and some dual mode devices ie fridge) or 12V for lights, and control circuits for AC, fridge, furnace, slide, and awning. Also check to insure that the breakaway cable has not pulled out the pin.

I would start trouble shooting by measuring the voltage across the battery with the coach plugged into shore power. You would be reading the voltage of the converter here if it is trying to charge the battery. If the converter is trying to charge the battery the voltage will be above 13.4 volts. If you do not have a voltmeter with you use the battery monitor in the coach it would also be reading the converter output and should be 100%.
More details would help here, such as the 12v lights work when connected to shore power but not when shore power is disconnected.
Insure that the battery is not connected backwards, negative battery terminal should be a white wire going to the chassis on the coach, positive terminal should be going to the fuse panel or such. There are fuses or breakers on the underside of the trailer tongue follow the positive battery leads under the tongue and you will find a small rectangular box sort of thing that normally has a small red button (breaker) push the little red button to reset.
Hope this gets you started good luck and happy camping.
