the 601 error ........ may be , 'battery not connected'

so I would start by following the solar wires from controller to battery
look for any breaker on the wire that may have tripped

If you have lithium battery ... has it gone into a protection mode?
What voltage is on the battery?
how long did you run generator or 120v shorepower.?

to wake it up... turn on shore power
you can get adapters to run from garage power 120v to the Trailer

lead acid battery (non lithiums) don't go to sleep

I had to do some troubleshooting over the weekend on our new Grey Wolf and found the battery wires to the solar charge controller reversed. Use a meter to verify + & - on DC circuits. If it shows negative DC voltage, swap the wires.

thank you all, i was very fortunate my unit is brand new i arill had it hooked up to my truck. I reached out ti my dealer they told me to bring back the very next day. Problem ended up being auto breaker was to small for solar package that was unstalled on the unit, they replaced it with a larger one all good. I do have to say this is my 6th trailer and 3rd dealer i have never had service as good as this. The dealer is Ray Citte RV in ogden Utah. Not only did they fix my problem right away but they pulled my rig into detail bay for me to allow me to wax the nose. Again i have had many rigs un sizes from 18ft to 43ft. My experience is to always keep a good coat of wax at minimum on the nose cone as it is paint, but i do wax my rig once a year. Cant say enough about the overall treatment i have recieved from Ray Citte from sales to service absolutely the best i have ever had. If anyone else here is in Utah this is the place to go. And i would like to add that i have had brands from heartland to dutchman this is my second Forest River unit extremly happy with it as well.
