Batteries not Charging

Began intermittent trouble yesterday with jack power. Was on shore power for a night after 5 hours on the road. Batteries are dead but water level in both are fine. I'm stumped.

Did you have the USE/STORE switch in USE when you were plugged in overnight? That is necessary to charge the batteries.

At this point I cannot honestly answer... I do not know.

Shouldn't the jack operate when the AS is plugged into the running TV?

Your jack positive cable is directly connected to the batteries, so if your batteries are dead, the jack will not operate.

As for the TV, it depends on how much current is coming thru the umbilical to the batteries.

So is it just the power jack that's not working?

If so, they do fail. My motor died on our 5th night, when it was less than a month old.
