Switch Position in Stairwell 2000 36 SDS???


I am chasing an electrical charging problem and am wondering about the large electrical switch in the door stairwell. In one position I have good house power, the other not.

What does this switch control? Is there an electrical schematic of the house/chassis power system available?

Thanks in advance,

That switch is the house batteries disconnect switch. To the left is the "on" position. That switch controls 12-v power to all systems in house. This includes some of the HWH functions.

I believe that's typically called the salesman switch.

Jeff & Cheryl are correct. Disconnect or house batteries.

What is your charging problem? Chassis batteries not charging?
