Loud noise when i turn off the chassis battery switch

Hi all, I just traded in my 1997 Imperial 40WDS for a 2005 Safari Panther- 4 slides, 525hp engine, aqua hot and all sorts of neat gadgets which I am learning about. I feel like a Prevost owner, the previous owner had remote control shades installed and one touch of a button and they all go up and down. Drove it home today about 400 miles and it drove like a dream. Love that Roadmaster chassis. My question is, since I don't have time to learn about the RC7 GS settings until next weekend I hit the battery and chassis cut off switches. When I turned off the chassis switch back by the engine I hear a very loud electrical "clunk" somewhere towards the middle of the coach. It sounds like a major electrical solenoid disconnecting. Does anyone have an idea as to it might be? Steve 2005 Panther

What you hear is the solenoid disconnecting switch. You are correct & it's good to hear it so you know it's off or on.

Mystery solved..... When I turn off the chassis battery, my step cover which is air powered comes out with a bang!

I can tell you exactly what it was.. It was a major electrical solenoid disconnecting.

On my gasser it's up front under the hood, but that is what it is. The switch at the door is simply a remote for that solenoid.
