Replacing Coach Battery Disconnect Relay

I am needing to replace the coach battery relay solenoid. Looks like it's been changed in the past (new to us 2003 Monaco Windsor 40 PST) so I need to make sure it was installed correctly before I replace in like manner. Does anyone have a schematic they could share or picture of their like model that would help me? TIA!

is this the Salesman switch solenoid???

A lot of people just bypass this as it is prone to failure.

Do you have a part number for it.

If you are replacing what is called by some, the "salesmen disconnect" then my advise is to bypass it. I replaced ours when we first purchased the coach then it failed a few years later while on the road. I used a 3/8" bolt, flat washer, lock washer, nut and some tape to tie the cables together. That was 3 years ago and have never missed it! If I need to disconnect the house batteries I just use the battery disconnect switch in the battery compartment to disconnect them!

Thanks! It actually was already bypassed...service manager did this at time of our final inspection because it failed. They provided the part and I replaced it today but sounds like I will pack a bolt and be prepared to bypass it again and leave it if we have a problem with it failing. Thanks!
