Question batteries going dead

I have had the engine batteries replaced 2 times in the last 3 months, and just replaced the coach batteries yesterday. I have it at a repair place now and need to know if the starter assist switch may be burnt together and causing all the batteries to charge at the same time and burning up all my batteries. That is what I think may be the problem. Please advise on information about this problem.

Problem number two is the onan generator. I had a new fuel filter installed. The generator starts up and runs for about two seconds and then stops. The problem light comes on and flashes 3 - 6 times which is a 36 signal. What is the repair for that signal?

Thanks for your input.

I don't have an Onan book but usually when they do that it's because the low oil shutoff tripped.

It looks like a 36 is a failure with out an error.
