SOURCE: phone does not charge
When my phone is connected to the charger, it says fully charged. But as soon as I disconnect the charger, the battery shows empty. When I connect the phone to the charger, it starts charging but after 10 seconds it says fully charged.

Here's what happened (The fix is at the end):
8 months after buying my Toshiba A135 the battery began charging only intermittently. It also would not run without the battery. I put up with it for a month then took it back to Best Buy to get it repaired under warranty. They kept it over 2 weeks then gave it back saying it was the battery, which they replaced. One week later I had the same problem again. Back to Best Buy. The guy at the counter said it was probably the battery, they had encountered a lot of that. I said no, explained it, and gave it over to be fixed. 2 weeks later I got it back. They had reset the BIOS, no hardware replacement. I got it home and it was not fixed. I took it back the next day. They kept it 2 more weeks. They replaced the motherboard. I took it home and...you guessed it the same problem on the day I got it home!!! I took it back with one week left on my warranty. I don't remember what they replaced the last time but I think it was the motherboard again. I got it home (2 weeks later) and THE SAME PROBLEM on the day I got it home. So, the lesson there is that Best Buy computer maintenance SUCKS!!
I called Toshiba to try to get them to fix it for free, and out of warranty. After several frustrating minutes of conversation with an accented person who just kept telling me that my warranty was up, I hung up and called back and got an English speaking person. SHE was very helpful, listened to my problem, agreed to give me a one-time fix ticket. They paid for the postage. When I got my computer back it was mostly fixed.
The problem was the module at the back of the computer where the power cord plugs in. It was defective. Some wire or solder had gotten loose. They replaced it and it worked fine after that, except that when it goes into sleep mode it will not wake up. I fixed that by turning off all the sleep mode options. BTW, a friend of mine with the same computer is now having the same problem.

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.

First, you need to make sure your power adapter is providing enough
power to both run the laptop & charge the battery. A very good way
to do this is to compare your laptop voltage & ampere requirements
(written on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop) with the voltage
& ampere ratings of the power adapter. Voltages should be the same,
or the power adapter's voltage about up to 0.5 volts more than the
laptop's voltage rating. Amperage of the power adapter should be at
least equal to or greater than the laptop's rating. It should never be
less than the laptop's rating, or else the power adapter will be
providing insufficient amperes to charge the battery. Of course, the
power adapter's nominal amperage might be ok, but it degraded on usage.
You can verify this by testing using a good or new power adapter.
If the battery did not charge using the new power adapter, take the battery off the laptop, & using a dry tooth brush, scrub in between the fins of the battery connector on the motherboard & on the battery it self, then put the battery back into the laptop & try again.
If this still did not resolve the problem, then the battery itself could be bad. Try it on another laptop, or try a good or new battery in your laptop.
If this did not work, there might be a possibility that the charging circuitry on the laptop's motherboard is defective & needs servicing. In order to do this, the laptop needs to be disassembled & the motherboard checked for defective/burned out components in the area near the DC jack. Any defective/burned out components found should be replaced, or you might need to replace the laptop's motherboard altogether.
