I had the van plugged in overnight and there was no charge. The lights on the batt didnt turn on to indicate that it was charging either.
I took the advice of jage
...I started the van and turned on the uplifter switch...let it idle for 5 mins...then plugged the van back in...switched off the breaker then back on (thanks skywagon)... Left the van on for another 10mins while plugged in then turned the engine off. The batt lights stayed on and it appears it is charging! Thanks guys!!
I will leave the van plugged in again over night. Hopefully the batt will recharge and actually be able to hold that charge so I dont have to spend the $$$ to replace the house batt.
