Author Topic: Has anyone replaced a battery disconnect switch or monitor panel?  (Read 563 times)

Hi, all.  I have a 1997 Roadtrek Popular--love it, works well except. . .  The new batteries are not powering anything.  When the camper is plugged into shore power, everything works.  The battery disconnect toggle switch on the monitor panel is stuck in the middle-won't stay either on or off.  Does this mean the switch is bad or is there something else causing it to malfunction?  Thanks for any help.

It's probably a spring-loaded "momentary" switch; Press one side to turn the battery disconnect relay on, press the other side to turn the relay off. When you let it go, it returns to the center position. Are you able to press the switch on either side? When you press one side or the other, do you hear a relay kicking in or out?

Glad that you posted your question here.  Bonjoe was on  the chat room last night with this question and we suggested that he post it on the Forum. 

I am sure someone with direct knowledge of the Roadtrek Class B series will be along to help you with more specific advice

Hey, HueyPilot and Tom,  Thank you.  Yes, the switch will move either way and I hear a click.
