Here is a little tidbit on that. The breakers drive the circuits powered by 120v (shore power). The fuses are your 12v side. In your case, your tripped breaker, wasn't allowing the converter to send current to your bat(s). Your trucks 12v system however, is a direct charge to your bat(s), thus you were seeing progress when using that circuit, albeit not long enough.
So, just be aware that if you're not seeing total charge, or near it when plugged into shore power after a few hours, check that breaker to make sure your energized. Just sayin'

That's true except those 'breakers' being referred to here (see post #3) are 12 volt devices. They're commonly called ShortStops, but they are technically circuit breakers.
Just didn't want someone to think that these were 120 volt devices.
