Question about monitor panel?
« on: December 28, 2017, 01:40:04 PM »
Does the monitor panel show battery info on the house batteries or the cranking battery? I removed the cranking battery today for service and noticed that the battery indicator in the monitor panel would not work. It began working again when I replaced the cranking battery.

As I [vaguely] recall, in your '98 Storm the battery panel had a selector to show one or the other (Main or Aux, where Aux is the house). The Battery switch may be a "rocker" type, with one position showing Main and the other side showing Aux.

Maybe another late 90's Fleetwood owner could advise - the functions of the panel often changed from year to year and sometimes model to model as well.
