battery disconnect

1998 pace arrow - Installed a new chassis battery, now both battery disconnect will not work. Chassis will not connect and house will not disconnects. This happen once before, when the chassis battery died. After charging it the battery disconnects would not work. A mechanic got them working but never said what he did. He did not charge for parts of labor.
All batteries are charged.

If you have a "Battery Control Center" check the 5 amp fuses inside it.

From there it gets to be even more fun.

ARE YOU sure you checked all the fuses?

After 4 years of owning my Damon, I spotted a box under the hood, said "What's this" since it was clearly designed to be opened for internal inspection I opened it.

Turns out it's yet another fuse box.. I'd missed it before.. (I do know where my BCC is, right next to this new one, been in there and replaced the aformentioned 5 amp fuse before)

I'll look again. In BBC just to be sure I pulled every 5 amp fuse in there and tested it.
On the inside of the cover it has a fuse layout. It has a layout for fuses 1-15 and F1-F15. I can find the F1-F15. F11 is windshield wiper, but 1-15, 11 is Bat Dis. I cannot find fuses 1-15. I will keep looking. Thanks for the help

Check F19. It should be 7.5 amp. It controls both disconnect switches.

Before condemning the circuit board, I would temporarily jumper 12vdc to the small terminals of the disconnect solenoids (individually, and one at a time, of course), to determine that the disconnects would indeed latch and unlatch.

Have you tried plugging into shore power and/or fully turning on the ignition to see if anything would reset?
