Well, I just went over to the storage yard and took out the power center. There, bigger than life was a loose, dead #10 red wire (unstripped) and an unused lug on the power center which read 12.7v - same as the RV battery. Hooked up the truck to the pigtail outside and the unstripped bare wire now read 14.1v (the truck was running). Stripped the wire and hooked it to the unused lug and voila, I had 14.1 volts at the RV battery. Problem solved.

So much for the "safety feature" and factory quality control!

Thanks all.

Way to go! Sure it's only a #10, but you will get some charge through it anyway. Perhaps your battery is already fully charged, but if I read you right, you had 14.1 from the TV with it disconnected and 14.1 on the battery once it was connected. Not a lot of voltage drop there, must not need much of a charge.
