No house battery charge on shore power

I have a "new to me" 2017 Navion 24V. My house batteries will not charge when plugged into shore power. They charge just fine when the engine is running. All of my 12 volt stuff works on battery power, and there are no apparent blown fuses or tripped breakers that I can find. I am wondering if there are any other "hidden" or not so obvious breakers/fuses/relays, etc that can be checked before I am forced to take it to the dealer for it to be checked as it is still under warranty.

Welcome to the forum! No, your Navion will not charge the engine battery when plugged into shore power. It is actually designed this way so don't waste your time looking for fuses, relays, or wiring issues.

You have two options to reduce battery drain: 1) Remove the engine battery ground plug (it's just above the accelerator pedal) or, 2) Install a Trik-L-Charge. The Trik-L-Charge is preferred if you have solar or you keep your motorhome plugged in when you are not using it.

The Trik-L-Charge borrows some current from your house batteries to keep the engine battery charged. In installs on the charge relay under the passenger seat and takes 20-30 minutes to install. Do a search for install help if you choose to go this way.

If your "house" or coach batteries will not charge on shore power, check your converter. Make sure there is 12+ volts coming out of it. I would test it both at the converter and also at the batteries. Mine wouldn't charge recently and I found that my converter was blown from a power surge.

Got this issue resolved. After systematically pulling things apart, it appears that the converter somehow came unplugged from the back of the fuse/breaker panel. Plugged it back in and problem resolved.
