SOURCE: 1996 Fleetwood Motorhome Start problem

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 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.

Battery won't stay charged

You say your test light was hooked from the negative terminal of the battery to the chassis? This is correct?
If so you don't have a short you have an open circuit.
You will have a bad ground somewhere between the battery and the engine or between the the engine and the body. Trace your grounds.
If you need more help leave a messege in "add comments" and I will help you along.
