Robert what do you think the problem may be?
Expert:  Robert replied 1 year ago.
OK
When you hit that switch inside it should trigger a solenoid valve and allow the power inside the RV, you are correct many times the solenoid will make a click noise when you hit the switch. GO to the batteries and follow the cables to the solenoid, once you find the solenoid you will see two LARGE posts, check for voltage on each side, if you have voltage on one side and not the other get an insulated wire and jump the posts and see if power comes on, if so bad solenoid. IF you do not have voltage going to the solenoid verify your battery voltage and then make sure there is not a breaker that is tripped from the battery to the solenoid. IF you have more questions or concerns please feel free to contact me... Robert
