I used it last Sunday and checked it this am and have no power .i only have 6400 miles on coach! Also how does outside tv come out ? Thanks Ron gascho phone number(###) ###-####

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the power loss consistent, or does it fluctuate?

No it just goes down l charged it with generator last week to full charge

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Volt yourself? What have you tried so far?

I am going to replace batteries as they are still under warrenty

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

The batteries may not be bad, but may need a good deep charging. If you can get a small digital multimeter we can check your charging system and see if that is performing properly. About $20 or so at most hardware stores and easy to use. I can direct you in some testing. The batteries should still be under warranty if they are bad. Try to remember to hit the battery disconnect switch when not using the coach so they don't discharge. Take a photo of the cable hookups so you get them back in again. Easy to get this wrong if you don't. Get back to me when you are ready to test. All follow ups are included in our fee.
