When I am plugged into shore power, I think the the better charger should keep the batteries from being drained. It is set to "on" on the control panel but the batteries are being drained. How do I determine what the problem is?

We need to check that the charger is getting ac voltage at the charger first. Then we need to determine the make and model to go further.

Do you have a volt meter and the knowledge to do voltage checks ac and dc?
