Have you considered contacting the Freightliner 24/7 help desk @ 1-800-FTL-HELP? They've always been very helpful locating components and you may want to talk to them about the low voltage message on the LBCU.

Weird question: If I am plugged in to shore power and both battery switches are 'off' will there still be a charge going to the batteries? House and starting batteries both?
If you will look at the document that I linked you to in my last post, you can answer these questions for yourself.

The answer to your charge (with both battery switches OFF) question is NO.
The house battery switch must be ON to allow the converter to charge the batteries when on shore power. The BCC will allow both house and chassis batteries to be charged with only the house switch on.

The solenoid that provides this charge is located very near the batteries. It is connected between the house and chassis batteries with the very large battery cables. It should be easy to locate. This solenoid does fail internally quite often.

While technically a part of the BCC, the solenoid is located remote from the actual BCC box ( on a diesel Bounder) because of the extra current required to start a diesel. The BCC will be located nearby.

Have someone switch the disconnect switches while you listen for relay clicks and you'll find it.
