$40 fix, and weeks of frustration. It is fun owning a RV isn't?

Is that located in the inverter compartment or battery compartment?

in the inverter compartment

this is what it looks like when put together

i measured voltages of each post (red wire) using the white wire post as the ground
when the alternator ran the chassis battery post went up but the coach did not

changing the solenoid and repeating i saw the voltage changed to be the same
Inverter readout also verified this

So, the problem was the solenoid, not the charger?
