12V Solenoid failure.

While feeling in the dark for my step lights by the entrance steps, I accidentally hit the button for 12V power instead (I know, stupid). When I hit it again, it would not come back on. DARN!!!!!(Actually, I used a few more colorful words).

I did a search on this forum and found a thread (see link below) where others had had the same problem, and it was a bad solenoid. The solution is to bypass the solenoid that has gone bad by putting both cables on the same side of the solenoid, thus bypassing it. Read the thread to see pictures of the solenoid and where it is located and more details. This is good to know in case it happens to you.

btw, It would not let me post on that thread because of its age.

Same thing happened to us on a cold December night in Grapevine, TX.
I love my TS but that has to be the dumbest place to have placed that switch.
Fortunately I found the hidden compartment under the inverter and bypassed the solenoid just before heading for a hotel.
I should have left well enough alone, but I ordered a replacement, installed it and had the problem again a year later. It is now permanently bypassed, just as you suggest.
If I ever need to kill power to the coach .... I know where to go to do it.

Is there somewhere posts like these are archived under "Things you will want to know" or "Learning the easy way" ??
Just asking.
