Hi, is the switch a manual switch, or when you press it do you hear a 'click' then the power comes on, and is there a switch for the engine battery, and the coach battery? thanks
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes it is a manual switch (use/store) and there are 2 switches one each for coach and chassis. I do not hear click, both indicator lights are lit and won't go out.

Michael, I checked everywhere and I cannot find the solenoids, not next to the engine battery, not anywhere in the engine compartment, not near the house batteries nor in the compartment where the inverter is ???

go to the engine battery or house battery, and follow the positive wire, thanks
