Hi
No wiring diagram to fix the problem, but I do have a basic diagram from either an 81 or 83 FC. If that would help.
Our 82FC,when started doesn't charge either. However, after it's warmed a bit I find that either A) when we hit the highway, the old girl will start charging, or B) If I'm
we are not moving the coach, just a couple of good blips to the throttle will get her charging.
Don't know if it's common, just one we live with.
Another thought-before we had found/learned about some of the hidden switches,my batteries drained quickly. For when the coach was not in use, I installed knife blade cut-offs on each battery, ginny included.

I have installed a relay that separates the starting batteries and other batteries. When I start the coach, it energizes and connects all batteries, which allows them all to charge together off the alternator. I also have separate battery chargers for the starting batteries, and house batteries.
