Good afternoon! Sorry for the delay in someone getting to your question here! It has been crazy busy these last few days. I have an RV repair facility and work on these systems for a living. Please give me a few minutes to type up an answer here for you. And don't be alarmed if I don't get right back to you when you respond. We work on more than one question at a time here when it is busy like it is now. I may be on a phone chat with another customer and those last less than 5 minutes. Your patience is appreciated! And several of us live out west where we are dealing with fires all around us! Thanks! Randall

With the voltage that low it won't reset. You are going to have to get that battery load tested and fully deep charged to get that to work. Then once you do you can check the charging voltage which should be 13.7 to 14.2 VDC unless this is a Lithium battery and then it should be 14.4 to 14.8 VDC. Use a small digital multimeter for testing this like you can find at most local hardware stores for about $20 or so. I am adding a photo link so you can see what those look like. Most places that sell batteries can load test this one for you. Be sure and mark the cables carefully first. Easy to get this wrong if you don't. I hope this proves helpful here and points you in the right direction. Randall

One of the ecotrek light came on. Does that mean it's working?
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 2 years ago

Without a meter for testing there is not a good way to tell.

Ok. Thanks. Once I have the meter, do I measure the batteries as if I am jump starting it? One on red and one on black?
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 2 years ago

Red lead on the positive terminal and black lead on the negative terminal.
