Customer Question
I have a 2003...

I have a 2003 Coachmen Leprechaun 314SS. I just replaced the coach batteries and now the latching relay isn't working. Can you tell me where the fuses are for this model?

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Has the car been starting normally?

The vehicle starts and runs normally, but the coach battery disconnect will not operate unless the vehicle key is on.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '03 RV?

It is a Coachmen Leprechaun 314SS

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your RV yourself? What have you tried so far?

I just replaced the coach batteries which are fully charged. I haven't tried to do anything except look for the latching relay fuse.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

The batteries are connected in parallel as required.

If you are talking about the battery disconnect solenoid module, they are on the unit. Some will have one and some have two. Usually 7.5 amp fuses. Double check the battery cables and hookups to be sure they are correct. Easy to drop a cable off and not get it hooked back up again or get a positive cable over on the negative side.

That is if you have ones made by Intellitec. If you have those made by RV Custom Products, those are on the control module in the Battery Control Center. It may also be a tripped shortstop breaker causing this. Small black button on the end that has to be pushed back in again. See the attached link photo. https://www.bing.com/images/search?view=detailV2&ccid=BqT81%2fi2&id=8D4939A7F0965679E3E29C89B963B0D9C24CDC15&thid=OIP.BqT81_i2snOEu0WIlAltMAEsEY&q=shortstop+breaker+photo&simid=608020010426568081&selectedIndex=0
