Hi my name is Robert...
On the disconnect solenoid do you have power on one side of the solenoid? IF you jump the posts will power come on? Do you have a print from Winnebago?
Normally the smaller wire is the trigger wire going to the small posts. Below is a link for you copy and paste that into your browser, not sure if you have that or not.... Robert....

There is power to the solenoid I will jump posts and see if there is power

Wonder if the solenoid shorted out or is operating the opposite way, try and jump and see if power comes on and then try using the switch.... Robert

power on both sides of solenoid nothing comes on though
with a test light grounded each post will light it
Expert:  Robert replied 1 year ago.
If you have power on both sides of the solenoid then you should be seeing the DC power inside, you are going to have to follow that cable going to the fuse box and check inside the fuse box for any tripped breakers or fuses, look for a short stop style breaker as well and make sure it is not tripped. Power should go from there to the main fuse box, you might have a battery control box under the hood.... Robert
