I have an electrical...

I have an electrical warning going off. But cannot find what it means. Do you have any tips?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model/year of your RV?

2019 Fourwinds Motorcoach

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

Checked the propane and carbon monoxide, fuse panels, and GFCIs to see if anything is tripped yes, we are on a road trip in the middle of nowhere

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the manual yet? Most vehicles have two fuse panels.

I’m not sure where the second one is Thank you for the tip though

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else the Mechanic should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.

Some of the electrical systems do not seem to be working currently, like the fridge is off even though the vehicle is running (at a gas station) and there is a chirping alarm every 40 seconds or so

It may be dead. It hasn’t been charging when we have stopped and plugged in the AC adapter overnightThe lights and fridge aren’t working even when the vehicle is turned onIs there a way to reset the batteries to check if that’s the problem?Also, is the only solution to have the batteries replaced?
RV Mechanic: Nachum Wagschal, RV Mechanic replied 1 year ago

is the coach battery disconnected ? I would check that .

otherwise just check the batteries with a voltmeter , or you can try jumping them with cables from a car

Would the coach batteries dying be the reason they couldn’t recharge overnight when plugged into power?
RV Mechanic: Nachum Wagschal, RV Mechanic replied 1 year ago

If they are bad , they wont hold a charge .

If they are totally dead the charger may not see them and wont turn the charger on
