You don't share enough information about how it happened. Was it stored? When I put mine in storage i had the same problem until I installed the item below. Bought it from Amazon.

Yes, more info. Did you have the battery disconnect on? How long was it in storage?

I think heís talking about the engine battery not the house, there is no disconnect for that unless you install one. He stills need to supply more information.

I would suggest since it's under warranty, jump it and take to a dealer. Even if they don't work on RVs, they still would probably look at it.

Just my .02.

The chassis battery does not charge from the converter like the house batteries. Everything from the dash area is powered by the chassis battery so it will run down. You can get a small charger to keep it charged when camping or install something like trik-l-start which is a dc to dc charger

How to change the chassis battery on a Gas Coachman Mirada

Does anyone know how to get to the chassis battery on a 2017 or 2018 Coachman Mirada? It would fit through the ridiculously small hood?

On my 2015 Mirada I tied a rope to the handle on the battery and lowered it to the ground. Reverse procedure with the new battery.


It's too hard to try and lift the battery up and try to get it out the hood opening.
