If it worked before the battery swap and you put everything back the way it was, then that's a stumper for me. When making the swap, did you cross any cables to the wrong terminal and/or see any arcs or sparks? Are you sure the 2 6volts are wired in series?

If the disconnect is a solenoid that is operated remotely... Is it possible you blew it's fuse somehow. In this case, I can believe conicidence, sometimes fuses wear out. It is a 5 amp fuse in the BCC on some coaches.

Another issue I HAVE PERSONALLY HAD. is a dirty remote switch, The 3-position use/ /store swich just inside my door, WHen I was in Utah a few years (six) ago I hit STORE and fueled up at the propane pump. Moved off and hit USE. and NOTHING, I mean NOTING.

Finally did the step 1 cleaning and it worked.

To do step one cleaning (the easy way) pull the aforementioned fuse, Now operate the self-cleaning switch say 50-100 times in both directions, Replace fuse and see what happens.. I got lucky. It worked and still does.
Home is where I park it!
