If this is the emergency start switch that is supposed to connect the start and coach batteries, it doesn't work. If it's just a switch meant to do nothing than it works flawlessly

Both battery connect switches are in the on position and I metered them just to make sure they weren't bad. One in the battery compartment and one in the cab by driver seat. Also the coach disconnect switch in the switch panel by the door is turned to on.

Flipped all breakers and nada.

So far I have left the generator run and I go put a charger on the batteries once in a while to maintain them. I think we are nearing the 50hr mark for continuos run time.


Still no schematics.

It will have to go in to be looked at

Hey bclemens,

I don't know anything about this unit, but it is GREAT to see your input into the problem. It is a shame the entire Forest River team doesn't get involved this way.

Keep up the outstanding work,
Don

It totally sounds like the charger within the converter not working. But! Unless the alternator is tied into the converter which Brian indicates its not... something else is going on there. Have you checked charger output at panel?

I disconnected the main power feed going to the coach batteries and put a meeter on it. It never gets power on it. Not with shore power and not with the generator. One time I was able to get power on it with the truck started but that was it.

Check at converter charger panel.. from what your posting it sounds as if the problem is there at the charger. ???

Offering this converter test, or the manufacturer may have a different test to perform.

One switch is to connect the radio to the house side. The other is supposed to be emerg. start. I'll have to figure out which is which. They wanted to get "printed switches" I said just label them for now...some people thought that was "hokey". Well, so is nothing labeled or printed.

I told my wife the one is an ejector seat. Now I drive alone, that might have backfired.

The one I'm pointing to must be emergency start because the one on the bottom right turns the radio on without the key. The switch does nothing though.

There has to be an onboard charger somewhere in the coach because this thing doesn't charge?

Can you please send me the schematics for the coach. Ben@soundconnectioninc.com
