Customer Question

I have a 7500 onan on my motorhome. I attempted starting it yesterday with the following results. The thing clicked for about 10-15 seconds and then the starter on the generator engaged for about 2 seconds - just clicked once- I immediately thought battery so I started the coach and let it run for about 45 minutes and then tried again - same thing except the starter turned the engine approximately 2-3 times. do I need to take the house batteries out and load test them or what?
