battery-electrical

My battery charges when driving, with generator running and plugged into shore power. If I leave my coach unattended, not plugged in, for a couple days to a week, nothing works...Once I start back up, I can get it to charge...Once it sits for a few days, nothing? The internal battery is still good. For the life of me, I cannot figure it out. I live in the mid atlantic region and need to find someone who understands electric or would know how to fix the problem. Any help would be very appreciated! Thanks much.

Do you put the use/store switch in Store?
If outside, do you use a solar charge minder to keep your batteries charged? What kind of batteries do you have? Standard batteries normally are damaged and need to be replaced if they are allowed to totally discharge multiple times.

Duh. You have an Interstate. I am a trailer person. I don't normally view an original poster's profile before responding.

Interstates are renowned for draining their batteries very quickly. If you don't want to pretty much leave it plugged in all the time, you'll need to disconnect the batteries when you're not using it.

What Overlander said or use a solar battery maintainer. They're cheap and keep the little drainers from sucking your battery to death.

No, I have no battery tender and am not plugged in at home. Having said that, my first house battery lasted about 35k miles and this newer one has about 12k on it and charging seems worse off now. I had the battery checked and it seemed fine,
