Auxiliary Power Solenoid

I have a 2004 Gulf Stream Sun Voyager 37 ft. Would not start this morning due to dead battery. I tried to start with auxiliary battery switch but nothing. I checked the M H batteries and they were fine. I checked all the fuse panels and could not find any bad fuses. I tried to locate the Auxiliary Power solenoid but could not find it. Any one know where it is located on this motor home.

Where is the battery control center. If it is in the front compartment on the drivers side I have looked there and I see a solenoid. But this solenoid is powered when you turn the key on. I found two fuses that is for the auxiliary power but both were OK. I would think there should be a solenoid that energized when you push the auxiliary power button on the dash. But I hear nothing, no click. Also the engine battery is not being charged with the converter. I keep this motor home plugged in all the time.

The Batter Control Center is the black square box with fuses and wiring connections in side it. Below the board are a couple of solenoids. I am not sure but your coach may not charge the chassis battery off of the converter or inverter. This would require a charging system designed to do that function. You could add a batter tender or similar free standing charger to keep the chassis battery charged.

I found fuses under the hood, in the front compartment on drivers side but no box with solenoids in it or under it. I found the one solenoid but it is active when you turn the key on. I don't any others. If anyone has a wiring diagram please look at it for me and see if you can direct me to the solenoid for the auxiliary power switch.
