Brand new batteries but lights don't work

Is this most likely a fuse issue? Batteries are brand new tested good, plug in and lights don't work, panel is completely off, and electronic jack does not work either.

Sounds like it. What unit do you have?

It's an Octane 222, I'm not completely sure but when I just had bought the batteries the panel stated full battery status, then after 2 days of camping while plugged in I lost one bar, not sure but it feels like the batteries are not charging when plugged in.

Have you checked the inline fuse to the batteries? 25amp I believe.

Check your converter too. Make sure your battery switch is on as well. (The switch that disconnects the batteries from the coach). If that switch is off, even being plugged in, they won't charge.

I wasnít getting 12v from the battery. Turned out to be the crimp on the battery disconnect switch let go. I replaced the switch as well, as they are only good for a few years

Thanks, the location of this switch you are talking about on the octane 222 is that near the tongue?

I don't think the Octane 222 has a battery switch.
