Question about Cars & Trucks
When plugged in or using generator the coach batteries are not charging. Is there a switch or something else I can try?
Check Ground wires

Testimonial: "This did not help as the ground wires are fine. The batteries are I can hook a charger up to them and charge them, but I'm not able to get them charged thought the generator or shore power."

First need to know what type and make of car you have.
most likely not on the problem in the door being any relation to the charging system as this is a seperate system.
and as for the alternator putting out voltage, if you put a volt meter to the lug on the back it should read about 14 volts, however this is not set in stone. you will also have to have the proper amps comins out.
I would take the vehicle to someplace like autozone and have a check done on the battery and charging system as they do this for free. As long as both check then you most likely have a wiring problem from alternator to battery issue.

The wiring diagram for the generator is pretty simple. You have three wires coming out, White/Green/Black. The black is the Hot, White is neutral, and green is ground. If the generator is running and you do not have power at the black wire, the problem is in the generator. Check the circuit breaker on the generator for OK. Make sure that power is passing through it.

First before we start buying any parts. Have someone tap the top of the starter solenoid on the pass side engine wall. Do this while you're turning the key.If it starts thats one problem out of the way. As far as the regulator and its condition the coach could have been asembled in several possible states and or countries. I've never seen two alike unless they were lined up at a dealership...lol. Just grab one of those 10 dollar meters and check the voltage at each battery while its running, while it's not running and while you are switched to dual mode.All may be well.or not. But you'll save a lot of time with that little meter.There is no practicle way(being a sealed unit) to actually check the regulator.Keep it simple and take your time. Good Luck. P.S. The alternator also has an internal regulator so run checks with the lights and fans on to make sure your getting sufficient voltage all the time. Thanks, Dana.
