Are you plugged into shore power or not? One battery or more and how old are they?

Make and model of your water heater would be helpful here as well.

I can give you a call once Customer Service clears your payment. Probably a Fraud Alert issue.

Do you have a small digital multimeter or can you obtain one so we can do some testing? That would be the quickest way to track down the problem. About $20 or so at most hardware stores and easy to use. I can direct you in some testing. All follow ups are included in our fee. No time limit. No word yet on your phone charge.

N​ever did get any notice that your payment cleared. Perhaps you just changed your mind, but if not, please let me know.
