Geo pro 16bh solar problem.

Hello I知 new to the RV/ camper world and I知 learning as a go. I just recently bought a 2020 geo pro 16bh and I think I知 having a problem with the solar panel and charging system. Correct me if I知 wrong but on the Geo pro the solar panel is supposed to charge the batteries and then run the 12 V system from the batteries in the inverter is supposed to take care of the 110 V outlets in appliances when not plugged in to shore power or my truck. We like the fact that It痴 a mostly off grid camper. My problem is that the solar panels are not charging the batteries and the charge controller has zero power to it with Direct sunlight. I have checked the fuses Everything seems to be OK or am I just asking something from the camper that it痴 not supposed to do.

We picked up ours a couple months ago (same) and killed the battery on the overnight ride home within a few hours (even though it was plugged in at the dealer all day).
Tip...the rear refridge is constantly powered if the inverter is on; I now keep my inverter off until needed (not to mention I removed the refrigerator and cabinetry for more room to carry my generator http://www.forestriverforums.com/for...d.php?t=193564


E/Geo Pro 16BH outside fridge dimensions?).
Make sure the battery disconnect switch did not turn / disconnect. You can also check the connections on the roof. Make sure the unit is set for the correct battery type, the instructions of the Go power controller are pretty easy to follow.
