Hi, I'm Robert. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now and will post back with your reply momentarily.

SO do you have a battery disconnect switch inside the unit? A battery disconnect switch isolates the DC power. IF you have that switch then you have a solenoid and that could be the problem that is why I am asking if you have a main disconnect.

No power there
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 27 days ago

SO when you say main disconnect do you have a manual switch at the battery or a solenoid?

Have power at solenoid on both sides
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 27 days ago

I want to make sure you have the right solenoid. DO you have an interior switch for that disconnect if so when you hit the switch you should loose power on one side of the solenoid.

Don't have any power at all
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 27 days ago

Can you please be a little more detailed on this. When you shut the disconnect switch OFF you do not have any power on both sides of the solenoid, but when you turn the switch ON you have power on both sides? Normally one side is ALWAYS hot or has power the other side has power when you hit the disconnect switch. You have to check for voltage one EACH post to chassis ground.

Neither 1 has power
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 27 days ago

And with the switch ON they both have power?

DO you have an interior disconnect switch?

Ask Your Own RV Question
Customer reply replied 27 days ago
Power at solenoid bit not at disconnect switch
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 27 days ago

That makes no sense. IF you have power across the solenoid you should have power at the switch.

Power comes from the battery to the solenoid, you hit the switch inside and then you have power across the solenoid, if you only have power on one side and not the other you can get a small insulated wire and jump the large posts and see if the power comes on. Solenoids do fail. IF you have voltage out of the solenoid then I would be looking for a breaker on that cable coming out of the solenoid, if you have NO voltage to the solenoid look for a breaker between the battery and solenoid. Below is one style of breaker you may find.
