looking for some advice. We change both solenoid and still have no power on left side of the unit. anyone else had this issue. fog lights,heat and mirrors are not working only if we jump it off the solenoid.

Only on the left side?  If it's a partial loss like that, it's not the chassis disconnect solenoid. The solenoids are all or nothing. And those are clearly chassis functions, so the house disconnect is not involved.  Sounds more like a fuse...

Welcome to the RV Form ezmcl

Your statement " jump it off the solenoid." is a red flag to me.

What are you doing to get these items working?

Although I wound not argue with either Gary or Cavie...I would start looking for a blown fuse.

we have check all fuse are fine, we still cant get the left side to work. Thanks for the advice I guess we try looking at fuse again. Yes we did jump directly to solenoid and got power that way. inside my switches one works fine but the other disconnect just making a funny noise.
