If you have a bad battery or two - three, they will pull all others down since they are all connected together in some fashion. Only your gen battery is seperate from the coach & engine start battery. It may just be time for new batteries. Solar is also a great solution, but with good batteries and having them disconnected with a balde switch or some other mechanical means of seperating total power your batteries should hold power 6 months or more.
Check out Downloads & Files > Batteries, Inverters, and Solar Panels for more of that kind of information.
