SO when you say no power "in the back" do you mean you have NO house DC power, the lights and everything else are not working in the living area?

What is the model of your Suncruiser?

Correct, no housepower at all. 2008 itasca suncruiser

OK near the entry door you should have a switch that isolates the battery for the house side, it may be in the step well or above the step. IF you hit that switch do you hear a click each time away from the switch, I think I know what the issue is here......

OK

SO click HERE it will be inside a box outside in the front,and would be the relay battery disconnect, it actually has a fuse on it so check that as well, check the round push button breakers as well, make sure you do not have a breaker tripped. Getting back to the solenoid you would want to see the same voltage on the LARGE Posts across from each other, if you have a meter you can go positive to one post and negative to chassis ground and then move the positive lead to the other side while on chassis ground and you should have the same voltage, if not get a small wire and jump the posts and see if your power comes on, these solenoid do fail, try smacking it a few times as well, sometimes that will unseat them.

IF you have any questions at all please feel free to respond back, all follow ups are included, I am around daily and respond when I can..
