Battery Level Indicator Inside Coach

My 2016 28DSBHlike others has an indicator panel for the battery and tanks. The tank level indicators seem to work fine; however the battery level indicator shows nothing. I've checked the battery and it's fine. On our last trip it appeared to be dead because nothing worked until I connected to shore power but I did find that the 30 amp inline fuse had blown. I've changed that and things work fine on battery power and a test shows its fine too but the battery level indicator on the panel shows nothing. Any ideas?

Thanks. That sounds right to me too. Where would you suspect that I'd find that wire? Behind the indicator panel?

Yes behind the monitor panel. Those monitors are already useless since they put them in in the 70's.

Order one of these on Amazon. There are different types but they are a lot better than the idiot lights the mfrs supply.
