Default Switch in back of Battery Tray

Hey Folks, I have an older model Friendship 102. I am curious which position the switch behind the coach battery tray should be set on. That maybe the reason the batteries are not charging while connected to the 50amp land line.

Not sure what switch you are referring to, but on the compartment on my coach next to the compartment where the battery trays are located are two big toggle switches. One is for AC and the other for DC power on the coach. To have power on the coach you turn them right. To turn all power off for lets say wintering time, you turn them to the left. On mine the two big switches look like the one by the entrance door also. But in the same compartment where the batteries are on mine there are no switches. Remember I have a Scenic Cruiser.

I only have the one toggle switch behind the battery tray. I don't recall ever changing the position but I did notice the coach batteries were not charging while connected to the 50 amp land line. Before I blame the onboard charger, I wanted to make sure I had not caused the problem. I have a 1995 Friendship 102 and this is one of the very few places to get support. Thanks for your response.

Have you tried turning it on and see if you get power? On my coach the coach batteries are charged by the inverter/charger combination Xantrex inverter. If your coach is equipped with such an inverter, they do have a circuit breaker that will turn the charger and inverter off. Tiny little button on the face of the inverter. Just push it in and it will reset the inverter/charger.

Hey Andrew here can you please take a picture of your battery trays?
My coach has no batteries at this time.
I can’t seem to get it going.
Thanks
