It doesn't look like shore power does anything besides run ac power. It's not charging my batteries. I am guessing the solar panels aren't working properly as well but do not know how to check them out.
Do you have a voltmeter? If so, what reading is it giving?

How are the solar panels wired to the batteries? Is there a charge controller?
