Roadtrek 190 battery disconnect issue

I sometimes have a problem with the battery disconnect not turning on or off on the wall switch. Solenoid issue, or something else?

It could be the solenoid or it could be the switch on the wall. Further testing would be required to narrow down the problem. You could use a jumper wire to test the solenoid, if it opens and closes each time you touch the jumper wire to the terminals on the solenoid, then you'd know it's a faulty switch. You could also connect a multimeter to the switch and make sure it reliably sends the trigger signal to the solenoid. A spray can of contact cleaner could be a useful addition to your tool box.
