Jerry, what are you using to "copy and paste" Check out Snagit for an incredible program to make it really easy. I can grab all or part of a web page, post, or even part of a picture. After that you can add annotation etc.

Koolkx, the diagram you show indicates that you have the ability to switch both your house and chassis batteries on and off independently. Are you sure that the switches have been pressed to turn on the solenoids?
Please provide us with the reason why you're troubleshooting. What are the symptoms?
Yes, I have pressed the switches. The symptoms is nothing happens. If I connect a fresh battery to this thing, and press the switches, nothing happens. If I turn the key to auxiliary in the dash tumbler, or to on, nothing happens. No lights come on, nothing. The only time I have ever been able to derive 12V power is by jumping solenoids. I am going out for a lunch break and going to mess with this right now and apply some of the information others have shared.

Myron,
I am not real good with computers in general, am viewing forum with a tablet so I highlight the link and copy and paste while in my email then send it to myself, that way I can link to the thread anytime in the future.
If more info comes later I would just Re copy and paste.
I looked at Snagit will look more later.
Sometimes I just do screenshot of a part of a post like the one with the diagram.

Ok then what you need to do is check the top solenoid on the right the bar on the right of the solenoid should be hot all the time as it is connected with the cable on the lower solenoid which is supposed to come from the chassis battery. You could use a test light to check for power if you dont have a meter. If you have neither you could disconnect positive cable from Chassis battery then take the metal bar loose from the one side and the wires loose from the other side of chassis solenoid and either bolt them together or get some vise grips and clamp them together use card board or say a towel to rest them on so they dont touch and metal to ground them out. Rehook the positive battery cable up and go turn key on... if you have power then that solenoid is where your issue is.

After reading all this I don't think your problem lies with the 12 volt panel but somewhere else!
Have called anyone yet to seek support?
Jumping Solenoids is not the solution - I've seldom seem them just go bad !

When we had our 2005 Georgie Boy Landau, 325ts Nothing would work unless the salesman switch was turned on. It would not even turn over. Ours was located on the left side of the switch. I would jumper that switch and see if you get 12 volts across that switch.

Chuck, I have replaced thousands of solenoids over 40 years. They do go bad. I made a lot of money replacing them.

We can lead them to water but then they have to take a drink!

Jump on the internet and learn how to use a voltmeter. Buy a cheap one. Take some measurements and we electronic doctors will diagnose it.

I can solve this in (three measurements). Ok, beat that.

Diagnose in 1 to 3 steps but cure may be many...;-)

Illness is voltus kaputus and it is caused by many things from wirium malaise to power storage dehydration along with many others...

What does the salesman switch look like? Examples? I'll go google this I guess. I find it difficult to conceive that an elusive switch has caused all of these problems for me

I think you're onto something here. I will check voltage there today and report

Just call Fleetwood Tech and ask the where your salesman switch is located. They will also assist you with your issues.
