My CO2 detector was wired to 12V even with the disconnect off. I found two taped up, switched, spade connectors behind the control panel. Now when I disconnect, I think the only thing with power to it is the radio.

OldChief7155,
The OP (JanineG) also posted over on the Winnebago forum. When I looked at the wiring diagram for the 05 Meridian while I saw the Aux Start circuitry, I did not see a method by which the Coach battery could be charged by the engine Alternator. Is that also true or is there some sort of controller included with the chassis?

Dunner,
From what I have seen in the wiring diagrams of many coaches, it is not uncommon for the CO2 detector, leveling system, and steps to be connected to the battery side. Additionally, they are connected to the chassis battery. Turning House battery system OFF does not disable these items. Ensures the C02 Safety Detector is always ON. You need to make sure the step switch is set to OFF in storage.

Dave

In Winnebago land, theCO detector runs on the switched side of the house battery.

Oldchief: See my previous post concerning charging on the OP's coach.

My storage is right next to my house and I have a 2-4-8 amp BatteryMinder plugged in all the time that can handle up to 6 batteries.

Do the sensors for the steps drain much? They do come out when I open the door with the house batteries off.

I changed the wiring for the CO detector to minimize the drains. Maybe I'm missing something, but I see no use to have it on when I'm not in the MH. Same with the propane detector. My neighbor complained about my smoke detector beeping every 15 seconds when the battery got low, so I removed the battery.
