Electrical problem 2005 Jayco Seneca 35GS

I have 2005 Jayco Seneca 35GS and when I brought out of RV storage this morning the battery was run down, it had only been setting for 5days. Used the auxiliary start and drove it to fill up the LP. When I cut it off for the LP fill it started right up when I was finished. I noticed on the way back that when I put on the brakes the digital readout for mileage and transmission gear selector would go out. When I turned on the headlights same thing happened.

I just had the bedroom slide fixed,had to replace the rollers underneath,,they had flattened. Not sure this would effect it, but wanted to relate any pertinent info.

Would like some help and comments, I am definitely electrical challenged.

Greg

The batteries should be load tested but it sounds like they need to be replaced. We haven't had to replace ours yet but will be taking a trip to Costco when needed.

It must be a poor electrical design if the engine battery runs down in 5 days. First of all the battery should be only for the engine use and onboard accessories. The house batteries should be only for the coach. This story comes up to often. Running a wet battery down takes the best off the battery.

There is no.connection between the 2. To me it sounds like a bad set of chassis batteries.

With that said, join this group and ask, there are several KODIAK experts as members.
