Well...I disconnected the battery cables and checked the terminals in the distribution center. It's putting out the 13.6 volts. I then reconnected the batteries and checked it to and through the breaker on the frame and the three fuses coming out of it. I don't know where to go from here.

Where's the next place to go?

Do you have an electrical disconnect?
Under fridge in some cases a push pull lever ?

Just to recap, and please verify these things:
If you plug into shore power, everything works fine.


If you aren't on shore power, only the directly-connected jack works.


If those things are true, Turbs has done a great job of checking everything and the only thing remaining (short of some hidden wire coming disconnected) is that you have a battery disconnect switch that they turned off at the dealer before you left and you don't know were it is to turn it back on.

I think I'll post over in the Rockwood area and see if someone will bite.

Bypass

I'm going to go bypass the disconnect switch. According to the RV people, there's nothing between it and the battery.

Thanks everyone and stand by! Please!

So you know where the bat-disconnect switch is. Someone on here complained the other day that they thought the switch should be "in" for ON instead of "out" for ON. You did try it in both positions didn't you?

Where are you measuring voltages to? Perhaps the ground is open from Bat to frame. If you've been measuring from Bat Neg terminal all this time we'd have missed that.

I did try it in both positions by know it's supposed to be in to connect but on the chance that it might be a faulty switch, I just took it off and connected the two wires. Still nothing. I'll mention again that when I check the battery on the panel with only 12v, the bottom few lights will light up a fraction of a second then it's all dead again. I don't know if that's a result of having the 110AC on earlier but thought I'd mention it.

I reply to the last post by Barry: I measured the voltage from a postive to a screw on a metal junction box mounted on the frame. In the distribution box, I measured from negative to postive terminals.
