Customer Question
We have a 3170...

We have a 3170 sunseeker 2014. when it sits in storage with the master switch off both coach and engine batteries lose power.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you tested the battery with a voltmeter? And can you see if it's leaking or not?

What would discharge all 3 batteries at the same time?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '14 RV?

3170

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

The old inverter 50 amp burned out so I replaced it with a 75 amp bc thats all that was available at the time. Same brand.

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

No I don't think so

Hi I'm Wayne

I will help you with this

the master switch cuts power to all the lights and accessories

and so forth , but still powers the inverter, I suggest to remove a ground cable

cut the circuit

I hope this helps you

Hi. If this helped you

Please rate my answer 4 or more stars.

That is the only way I get credit for the question

or the money you paid stays at JA and I get nothing for my time.

If you need more info use the REPLY button

Not the Poor/Bad service.
