House battery charging

I have a 2006 Greyhawk 31SS. My house battery does not charge from the alternator when the engine is running. I've looked for the isolator solenoid, but cannot locate. According to owner's maual it's under hood on left side cowl. I have found what seems to be the auxiliary start solenoid. One large post has 14+ vdc with engine running. The other large post measures 1+vdc with engine running. The voltage on these two posts remains the same with the aux start button pushed; however, the voltage on the 1+vdc post decays. Any ideas?

That sounds like the isolator... LIGHTLY I SAID LIGHTLY tap it with a SMALL hammer this my free up the insides to move like it should... also check the ground wire for corrosion.
