The shut off switch is for the 12 volt side. There will always be 12 volt potiential between the battery and switch. There are certain things that are not killed by the switch, so some downstream power is normal. Now if whole coach is hot, sounds like the switch is either not wored correctly of is defective.

Are you still plugged into shore power? If so, it's your converter that is supplying the 12V.

If that switch "used to turn everything off" and it no longer does... either the switch, or the solenoid it controls, is NOT "working fine".

Mel S, please re-read the OP's posts. He said the cable on the load side of the solenoid still had voltage on it when the cable was removed from the solenoid.

Wonder if he's looking at the emergency start solenoid? Getting power from each bank, start and coach.

Okay.
Then it seems that the OP is either testing at the wrong soleniod or he has solar supplying voltage to the cable removed from the solenoid.

Either "solar" or he is still plugged into shore power and the "converter/charger" is supplying the house side with 12V power.

That's the way Fleetwoods with converters are wired, and would apply to any coach equipped with an intellitec or RV/CP BCC. My Bounder would be the same as the OP describes if plugged into shore power.

Have you checked the switch? Disconnect the switch at the solenoid. Use a meter to see what happens when you flip the switch. Do it several times. If the switch is ok, then measure the voltage at the solenoid with the switch disconnected. Trigger the solenoid using some other 12V source than the switch while metering the output side. Do it several times to be sure it is not intermittent. I have replaced two different solenoids recently because they went intermittent. They were not easy to diagnose, but the fix was.
