2000 Signature 12 volt power problem

I have read many threads about the battery disconnect switch next to the passenger seat. Many have said there is a solenoid in the fuze box on the drivers side.
Our coach has 2 solenoids, but both work of the key. I cannot find any other solenoids other than the 2 in the engine compartment, in the high voltage compartment. I thought these worked with the isolator for charging while running. Both of these had power going through them.
Any idea's where to look for this solenoid for the battery switch?

Thanks,
Makes sense, I had replaced about 6 years ago. Previous owner had put jumper wires on both. I purchased 2 at a NAPA store.
