Battery Cutoff Relay
« on: September 25, 2013, 07:58:16 PM »
We have a 2002 Monaco Windsor. I have replaced Two (2) Battery Cutoff Relays in the last 2 yrs. Has anyone else had this problem? An RV Mechanic said to just put jump wires on each post. He said that most of the relays were a pile of junk. We are traveling and today when we returned, I had no power, we finally traced it down again to the relay. Any suggestions will help.

I have a Monaco Diplomat that had the same problem.  I by passed the Relay by connecting the wires to the same Post.  I did this after two other Monacos, Dynasty and Windsor, had the same problem.  The way it is designed is that the Relay is energized when supplying power to the Coach and the continuous power to the solenoid burns it up.  The resolution is to get a latch type Relay, will take some research.

I have always meant to repair mine but, as yet, have not got around to it as I am plugged to Power when in storage.
