Loved driving it home, was quite a treat. Hated putting it away, would've loved to have just kept going! Oh well. Have to earn a living to pay for the thing!
Here 'tis, a 2000 Tiffin--
She's a sweetie!
On to the issue-- Not a biggie, just a blown solenoid in the inverter compartment:
As you can see, the right side post seems to have gotten a bit warm-ish, and spit itself and the cable out. The sticker says "CHARGING SOLENOID". Naturally, this solenoid is nowhere to be found in the coach wiring diagrams or the inverter installation instructions. Since the batteries seem to charge when plugged in to shore power, but not while driving, my assumption is that this solenoid activated by the ignition key, allowing the alternator to charge the house batteries?
Or...? (It'd be nice to know exactly what it does, thanks!)
Obviously I need a new one. It doesn't look all that special, should I replace it with an "exact" replacement, or will most any "generic" high-amp solenoid work? (In case this 'exact' replacement is ridiculously priced) ?
Thanks in advance!
