Power loss after battery cut turned back on

Hello fellow Monacoins,

I have just returned back to my 2002 Signature after a 1 month break away from it... and turned back on the master isolation switches in the battery compartment and the battery cut off switch on the dash. I seem to have lost power in a circuit that supplies the dash radio and outside temp gage along with some other DC powered equipment including the bedroom slide???? Has any body had experience with this...is there a relay/solenoid that may have decided to not energize again???
BTW...I have full voltage at my batteries now and my generator is running and supplying power.

I need some help as I cant get any clothes out of my drawers in the bedroom apart from other things!!

Cheers

Rod

Rod,
I'm homing in on your "...and the battery cut off switch on the dash." I think this is widely known as the Salesman switch ... which controls a solenoid that provides (or cuts) DC house voltage to much of the rig.

Your slide is relay activated, and my guess is that this relay is not getting its energizing voltage .... as is the case with your radio & outside temp, etc., etc.

Try rocking the Salesman switch on & off several times to see if the solenoid that it controls comes back to life.

It's also worth turning off, then turning back on, all master cut-off switches (the big ones you mention in your battery compartment).

I have tried the salesman switch a few times...this switch is definitely working as it controls the A/C thermostats that are turning on and off with it...I have had this problem once before but only momentarily...now it seems permanent and I did not realise that it would affect the rear slide but I guess its on the same circuit. Maybe I need to do as you said and try the master isolators again...here' hoping!!

Noticed that my continuous solenoid in the battery booster box in the engine bay is not operating...I just jumped it with a hot wire and got my slide out...now I dont know if the issue is the battery isolator switch or the actual solenoid????

WRT your "..I just jumped it with a hot wire", you're saying you used a large (high-current capable) "wire" to jumper the two main terminals on the isolation solenoid?
