Problem with the BCC coach disconnect

Members, need some help.

My Pace Arrow coach battery disconnect is not activating power when the coach engine is OFF or connected to a shore, I don't get power at the Battery Control Center monitor(screen its off) above the entry door, nor light fixtures inside the coach. Both chasis & house batteries are fully charged (13.5amp). when I press the disconnect switch to ON I hear a clicking sound at the BCC box at the outside compartment but I don't get nothing inside the coach. I checked fuses at the BCC box but no burned out fuses. BUT, when I start the coach engine seconds later I get power in the coach, BCC monitor info lights up and all lights turn on. I also started the generator while engine is still ON to keep battery charge but once I turn the engine OFF seconds later lights go OFF and the generator turns OFF as well. I have connected the coach to a 50amp shore the micro starts, tvs, outlets and satellite but no coach lights. Is the problem the battery disconnect solenoid, board or something else? Help..

I don't think its the battery disconnect. Starting the engine adds the chassis battery to the house battery and things work.

I would look at the house battery cable connections and the ground cable where it bolts to the chassis.

There should also be a breaker or fuse within a foot or 2 of the house battery.

To test the battery disconnect, start the engine to get the lights working. Then set the battery disconnect to OFF and see if the lights go out. Then switch it to ON and see if they come back on.
If they do, the switch is working fine. Your not getting house battery power to it.

One other point. If your meter is showing 13.5 Volts with the shore power plugged in, that's not the battery voltage reading, its the charger voltage reading. Pull the plug and read the volts.

I searched for the fuse on the house batteries cable and no sight off one. It looks like the cable goes from batteries box straight to the Disconnect relay. Regretfully, I’m going to have to take it to the shop. Oh well.
