2002 HR Endeavor DC power Problem

Hello all,

I posted this on the open Forum and it was suggested I post my problem here also.

Hello to everyone,

I have lost the DC power to the rear DC power distribution panel.

The rear DC panel, with a 50 amp feed, feeds all the light plus a few other items of power controls in the coach. The power to this panel is back fed from a front DC distribution panel. There is power at it's output points. The electrical diagram shows a cutoff relay which I don't have, that I know of. I have DC power at all points except the back panel.

So the question to the group where does the power cable run in the coach to feed the rear panel? Or where might a cutoff relay be mounted?

Calling Indiana is of no help for they have no information on this coach since the Oregon plant closed. Their comment, " We did not make that coach."



P.S. I hot wired it for now.

I am sure you have checked this, but that salesman switch (mine beside passenger seat) controls a solenoid for DC power?

Greets to all,

Some time back now, I reported a loss of DC power to all the lights and other functions in my coach, a 2002 HR Endeavor. As mysteriously as the problem arose is has mysteriously disappeared.

DC power is fed to a Main distribution panel, from the house batteries, in the left front compartment of the coach. Thru a cutoff relay power is fed to a back DC panel which feeds the light plus other functions.

The Cutoff switch by the front door is non functional on my coach.

I did a manual operation of the relay and all is well, but the mystery continues. Where there was a 12 volt at the coil for the relay there is none now.. But all of the DC functions in the coach have been restored.

Thanks for looking in,


P.S. I do have the electrical prints of my coach.. I also have a electrical back ground.

My 2002 Endeavor also appears to have a non-functional salesman switch by the door. I suspect, haven't confirmed, this switch only functions when shore power is removed. Really no need for it if shore power is on? I will be checking this as a problem I have been experiencing is when I disconnect or have a power outage from shore, my battery charger doesn't come on when powered back up or plugged in. I have to manually switch it back on at the panel on the wall across from the fridge or at the inverter.

D.C. Power problems

I also had an intermittent D.C. Power problems. It Was driving me crazy. sometimes ok and sometimes nothing at all. I finally found that main cables going to main cut off switch were loose.

When I took the switch off the bulkhead it fell apart in my hand. Good thing I checked it as it was burned and scorched. Lucky it didn't catch fire!
