Roadtrek 2010 170 Model - Electrical Problem
« on: August 30, 2020, 04:55:12 PM »
Greetings - I have a 2010 Roadtrek 170 which has operated great for the last 10 years.  On a trip this past week, the electrical system in the coach  died, ie, no power to any of the outlets and other components.  Checked and all fuses are good - I suspect that there is a relay that has gone bad - just do not know where the relay is in order to check it - help!!!

Have you measured the voltage of your house battery or batteries?

 No 12 volt AND no 120 AC when plugged into AC or generator running, is that what you’re saying?

Mike,

I do not know your coach specifically, but most have three electrical systems.
1- 12V for the main engine aka chassis systems.  When this dies, you don't go.
2- 12V for house systems like interior lights, LP heat, water pump.
3- 120V from shore power for the microwave, TV and to charge the house bank.

It sounds like your house bank is dead.  That is changed either from shore power or the main engine via a combiner contactor (relay) that looks like a Ford starter solenoid.  It is not, it is a very different part.     

If you can put up a clearer explaination of what isn't working, we can probably help.
