Welcome to the forum. First thing, it's very difficult to read, much less comprehend a run on sentence without any punctuation. Secondly, some more information like what size solar cell setup do you have? What size generator were you using and how was it connected?

What do you mean "had to jump the batteries to leave"?

If your coach batteries are not fully charged and in good condition, they may not be able to do their primary job during towing, which is to energize the trailer brakes in the event of a separation of the trailer from the tow vehicle.

If you need to tow and your coach batteries are dead (or close to it), you really need to correct this before you tow. Either charge the batteries (using whatever mechanism you can use) or replace them with known good, fully-charged batteries.

Steve, first, welcome to the forum. Second, you need to fill us in on your equipment, i.e. TV, RV, years, models, etc. And, as Marshall pointed out, punctuation helps us all read with better comprehension. I better give a thumbs up to Mark and his braking statement. Good batteries are of the utmost importance.
