Thanks everybody. I'm begining to think bad batteries. We've only had this for about 1 month now. It sits in storage. I did check on them while in storage, and noticed they were draining. By the time I made it back to check, they were even lower. I brought it home to charge them and it doesnt seem to be working. Thanks again for the help.

Well, if you don't have a battery disconnect switch, install one.
Otherwise your new battery will be dead again.
Unless it's plugged in where you store it.

After 4 years and 3 batteries, I finally got around to installing a $28 battery disconnect. It's odd that a battery is 12 volts but when it gets close to 12 volts on a meter it is almost dead. I tried charging mine but when it gets down into the 11 volt mark, they are DOA.

I could be wrong, but I have been told by several on FRF that:

You have to have battery power to activate the controls to the AC, fridge, furnace, etc. When you turn the AC on with a low to dead battery, it's saying NAW!
