SOURCE: 76 winnebago brave, not charging the batteries,

Your power converter is probably okay, since the lights are getting bright when generator runs (and probably when plugged into shore power). A coach that is as experienced as yours is probably going to have multiple wiring issues that have occurred over time. Corrosion on battery terminals is common, but so is not maintaining the batteries. Batteries are usually killed by not charging properly, discharging too deep, and not keeping them clean. The batteries can also be wore out, especially if they are more than a couple years old and spent a lot of time sitting in the back lot.

Start by looking at the cables located at the battery, as well as at the battery connection on the DC fuse block. Everything should be clean bright and shiny. If not, I would suggest loading a dremel tool with a brass brush, and clean all wires and connections individually. Make sure everything is turned off in the coach to minimize sparks. While you have the cables off, take a look at the date codes and check the water levels. Correct accordingly.

There is a possible problem that can be at the converter as well. When you supply power to the converter, a solenoid engages a switch that transfers power to the batteries, charging them. If this switch has failed, it will cause same symptoms since batteries are not being charged.

The chassis / starting battery may not be charged by the house charger at all, especially if there is a Emergency Start / E-Start / Boost button on the dash somewhere. The engine is able to charge the chassis battery and the house batteries through a big relay (looks like ford starter solenoid on coaches like yours).

If you drive down the road, and main battery doesn't charge, and house batteries don't charge, Look closely underneath your coach for a grounding problem as well as possible bad alternator. But, if your house batteries charge off the alternator, then your problem will likely lie in the switch on voltage converter. If chassis battery charges and house batteries don't, look for 30 amp fuse between house battery and relay on firewall of engine compartment.

Make sure you wear old clothing, wear eye protection, and gloves when around batteries, and also when using the dremel.

What could be causing Intermittent high piched whinning sound from ford v10 engine on 1999 Winnebago Brave. Speed does not affect it and sound is causing no issues yet.

Check the tension of the fan belt as if it is to slack it will slip under load causing the noise. Tightening it solve your problem.

Speedomete, oil pressure and all other gauges on the dash of my 1999 winnebago brave just stopped working ans i can not find a problem.

It is likely the cluster is just burned out, the cluster is a computer and all info you see is computer generated from data collected from sensors on the engine and the transmission and sent to it by the engine computer. It can be tested by the dealer of the chassis your rig is built (you never say that info) on with a special scan tool.

Need a shifter cable for a 1977 dodge winnebago brave motorhome

Usually the shifter is on the dash instead of the column so the RV companies used their own design.
I would check with the RV clubs and research the internet for salvage yards for RVs and campers. Good Sam is one that comes to mind.
You may also find something that would work at a boat dealer.

2002 monte carlo fuel gauge doesnt work,pump works ok.

It is likely the fuel level sending unit. I had a customer with an 03 Monte Carlo that the pump went out and the fuel gauge hadn't worked in about a year. We replaced the fuel pump module and it took care of both problems. I believe the sending unit is available separately from the complete module.
