Any idea why this would not be hooked up. What exactly is its function. The rig had a disconnect solenoid, would this serve the same purpose

If the disconnect solenoid you mentioned is for the house, the one in the picture could be a chassis disconnect. However, it looks like it's been bypassed, if that's what it's for.

Yes it was for the coach. Fried so pulled it out. My question is does this unit serve the same purpose? Seems to be in working condition, but like you said it's been bypassed. More information, the coach solenoid was the original equipment from 1989. This unit is relatively new, so why bypass? Any thoughts or information on this part

Yes it appears to be a disconnect solenoid. The only reason it would be bypassed is it does not operate. Does it operate? The one in the picture is from RV Custom Products. Was the other one from them also? Do you have a switch for the house and chassis disconnect?

I got two battery switch inside aux and main. They seem to be momentary switches. I can jumper across the solenoid and get things to work. I know 12 volt but ice always dealt with battery switches .If I don't mind having a true batter switching set up can I bypass this stuff. Also are they just glorified relays

Yes they are glorified heavy duty relays. As the switches are momentary the relay is a momentary latching relay. When the switch is operated It supplies power to one of the small terminals and grounds the other to close the contacts. To open the contacts the switch is pushed in the opposite direction and reverses the above. Yes you can bypass the relays, you won't be able turn off the 12V power with the switch. The main reason for the disconnects is the prevent draining the batteries when not using the MOHO. If it's alway plugged to shore power you don't need them.
