By the way.... I try to drive my C once a months during the winter just to keep things working. Well, I got busy with work and accidentally let it sit for 3 months. When I finally turned the key, it started right up.

There is NO WAY you should go flat is just a few days.

Test the 'truck (chassis) battery' using an amp meter to see how much is drawing when its parked . Do not plug the camper into shore power while testing.

Is the battery down? If not it could be the brake light switch on the pedal. There is a switch on the brake pedal that needs to be made by depressing the brake to complete the start circuit.

Mine started doing that. I cleaned the battery terminals and connectors and it solved the problem..
