Yes it is probably the charger. If the system works with just the battery in the circuit, it would eliminate the majority of the wiring. The problem could still be wiring, but between the charger and the battery. Check all the connections before you go changing anything.

The tail lights on my 2006 dodge grand caravan don't work. Yet all the other lights do. I have replaced the light switch on dash but it did not fix the problem. Any ideas what could be wrong?

Get the wiring standard for trailer socket on car / caravan .
Something like this
Then get a 12v probe and test the voltage is coming out the correct pins on the car when the tail lights are turned on.
Check the Earth Connections on the caravans tail lights.
Check the Caravan has an earth connection to the car body.
see how pin 3 shows an earth wire it would have a wire on car socket pin 3 going to the car body. If the earth wire is corroded or broken I think the tail lights on the caravan would not work. It may be a different pin on your setup .

Can somebody please where the switch is on a elddis caravan to change the water heater heating to gas. ThNkyou

Many do not have electric heating elements, but if yours does, it should only work when plugged into "shore" current. Without that hooked up, unit should try to light and run on propane automatically when you turn on switch. If it does not, igniter may be bad. Time for a trip to camping world pro.

Do your fourway flashers work?
This problem is likely a burned out flasher unit. Generally this is an easy item to fix on any car. On your dodge it might be somewhat harder. You will need to consult your user manual to find the flasher location.

This is a bad PCM. Try to disconnect the security system first and if it still does not start then it is the PCM.
