Do you know what year? Did they check to make sure the alternator was working properly? If its not the battery will be draining even when it's running.

Chassis battery or coach battery? or both? Sounds like it's time to take it do a RV Dealer or RV Service Center that knows how to troubleshoot RV problems. If the isolation relay which opens and closes to charge the battery from the converter or alternator is stuck open then anything in the coach could be draining power from the chassis battery as well as the coach battery.
