Weak house battery: Check electrolyte level and cleanliness of cable connections. Check voltage at battery terminals with shore cable connected to 110vac or with RV generator running. Should read over 13volts if converter charger is working and aux battery switch is "on". Voltage should be over 14 volts with engine running generator off and disconnected from shore power. House battery(s) may be old, need replacing.

Your batteries may now have such a charge that you better stand in front of your toaster when you use it. it may jump off the counter. Just kidding you will be fine.

This capability is one of the coolest things about campers in my opinion. I have done this many times with no issue. Also just pushed the momentary aux button while a helper pushed the gen. start button with the engine off, to see if it works ok that way. Both good work arounds to get the gennie going. As long as everything works, all you need is gas.
