House lights not running off of engine battery - Battery not charging

I have a 2006 Lexington 255DS MH and the house battery has never charged off of the engine. My first guess is the charging relay is shot (see photo). I will replace that this week.

2nd issue, stupid error on my part (I think). The coach lights would work whenever the engine was running with to coach battery disconnected. Well not thinking i tried to start the generator and all the lights went out. Connected the coach battery and the lights worked and the generator started.

I looked for a blown fuse or relay and found nothing.

Any guess what failed?

Thanks,

Bill

good looking solenoid! Replace that first and see what happens. I think that you can start the genny with the batteries disconnected, but the converter on my unit won't do much in that circumstance.

Scott,

You were spot on. Replaced the charging solenoid (after pulling everything out and painting the batter box) and it works great.

Thank you!
