Coach Battery Disconnect switch

I have a 2005 Coachmen Cross Country 354 MBS on which I pushed the Coach Battery disconnect switch. The power went off. Now it won't come back on. Any suggestions? It is a rocker type switch that does not stay in the right hand position when you push it. Any suggestions?

Your switch controls a relay but I would check if the switch is functional first and then look for the relay it controls if the switch is OK. If you have a multimeter check the voltage on each side of the switch (or check continuity). You could also put a short across the switch contacts and see if the DC disconnect relay activates.

Like always, check connections and battery voltages.

Good luck.

After playing with the switch, and probably because it had cooled for a while, Igot it to come back on. Thanks to all who were studying the problem

Expect more problems if you do nothing, I suggest you check all connections because there appears to be an intermittant fault. And indeed it could be the switch. There should not be a thermal component to this switch that would make it OK "after it cools down".

Good luck.
