None of the 12 volt lights work, refer, etc. Everything works once you are plugged into shore power or you run the generator. Thoughts?
Not all coaches have house and chassis "battery disconnect switches".
My Safari does not... but it does have a so called "salesman switch" in the step well of the entry door.
That "salesman switch" turns ON/OFF the 12V battery power FROM the house batteries
TO a 12V fuse panel
located in an upper bedroom cabinet.
The 9 fuses in that 12V fuse panel protect the following:
1.) Living room ceiling lights.
2.) Kitchen lights.
3.) Bedroom and bathroom lights.
4.) Roof vent fans
5.) Water pump and monitor panel.
6.) Water heater control board.
7.) LP furnace.
8.) TV antenna amp
9.) Norcold refrigerator control board.
Mechanical "SALESMAN SWITCH"
However I doubt you have a "salesman switch problem
" because "everything works once you are plugged into shore power or you run the generator".
your coach does have a"
house battery "disconnect"
it is one of the large relays/solenoids
in your battery bay.
