Vista 30T Battery Isolation Manager ??
We have a 2014 Vista 30 T and we've had one chassis battery fail in three years. Installed the second one and it didn't hold a charge. I'm not believing that the chassis battery is being charged when we are plugged into shore. The WBGO dealer confirmed that for me today as well.
I've read my information provided by WBGO for the BIM (Battery Isolation Manager). According to what is listed it is supposed to charge both the coach and chassis batteries.
"3. Bi-directional Charging
a. Charge Coach Battery when Alternator is charging Chassis Battery
b. Charge Chassis Battery when Converter is Charging Coach Battery. "
That's a direct quote from the Precision Circuits Inc manual.
When we are plugged into shore power the chassis battery reads 12.6-V. The coach batteries read 13.6 V. That's charging the coach but not the chassis battery.
When the engine is running there's 13.6 V at the chassis battery as I would expect.
I have ordered a Trik-L-Start unit and need to find the BIM Relay for the hook up but so far it has eluded me. I've looked under the steps where the batteries are located. The dealer said it was on the drives side behind the front tire. Didn't see it. There are a bunch of covered hoses from the jack pump but no BIM.
I have not looked in the generator area yet but will tomorrow.
Anybody have any idea where to look?????
