I've never seen that type of tester used in the manner you are using it. Not saying you are wrong just saying I've never seen it.

All the battery testing aside, I think that bus may be part of the problem
Seems like you should have power on both sides.
Does that cable come directly from the cut off switch?

Someone will probably come along to tell us what that 'bus' actually is.

A couple things; if you have a 6 or12v system your batts should read about 12.7v per battery in total when fully charged. If your reading that low 6.7v, your math is fuzzy (two batts @ 6.7 + 6.7 = 13.4v) . To test them the cheapest way you need a Mighty Max Battery Hydrometer Tester Acid Electrolyte Lead Flooded | eBay like this. That is the cheapest and most sure way to tell you what each cell charge is. Read this The 12volt Side of Life (Part 1) that will help you get up to speed on the battery side of your RV.

Remember this general rule, in newer MHs they have a BCC (battery control center), that takes the 110v (shore power)or ALT 12v (in flight) current and manages the charging of both your coach and chassis batteries. If your not getting a charge to your house batteries, you need to check your fuses first. You should hear the iconverter fan kick on when it is in its charging mode of the battery system. Hope that gets you in the right direction.

The Bus is something you ride in; right? Pretty dumb answer, Ha-Ha

See, I knew someone smarter than me would come along soon with an answer.

I took the 'short bus'.

Answer or resolution: the problem was the 150 amp Buss fuse. It was broken. Funny thing the dealership here didn't have one so they let me steal one from a unit in the lot and it had the same problem. I bought a $1.62 fuse that I got in use to confirm the fix and affirmative we have power! My buss fuses for my holder will be here tomorrow, I ordered 3!

Thank you for all the help!!!

Question anyone ever replaced this fuse a breaker?
