Location of the continuous duty solenoid on a 2004 Holiday Rambler Admiral SE?

Dear RV community,

The user manual for the 2004 Holiday Rambler Admiral SE advises to have a spare continuous duty solenoid and in another section describes the boost solenoid.

I have looked in several locations on the RV and can't see or locate the described solenoids.

Question 1: Are the continuous duty solenoid and boost solenoid the same or two separate and different components?

Question 2: What is the location of the continuous duty solenoid on a 2004 Holiday Rambler Admiral SE?

Question 3: If the boost solenoid is different than the continuous duty solenoid, where is that solenoid located on a 2004 Holiday Rambler Admiral SE?

Your help would be appreciated.

Location of the Boost Solenoid


See the diagram below. It shows the "Front Distribution Panel," which is in a box in the compartment directly under the driver's left foot, accessible from the outside (that is, the forward-most compartment).

The charging solenoid ("boost") is in red. I believe the "continuous duty" and "boost" solenoids are two terms for the same solenoid. This solenoid connects the chassis and house batteries while the engine is running, so the engine's alternator can charge both battery banks.

The other solenoid, shown in blue, is used to cut off some DC loads from the house batteries. It is activated by the almost legendary "salesman switch" near the front door.
