Uh oh, you let out the magic smoke.

Question: WHO made the box... (HINT: it was not made by the name on the coach, it was made by the name on the box)

I think something may have been damaged as part of the chassis wiring if some of the dash lights do not work now???

While I do not know your rig, That box on my rig is involved with several systems, both House and Chassis... And without popping the lid and reading the labels.. I can not tell you which ones.

What surprised me was another box, Plain, no lettering on the cover.. IT too was full of fuses. (I should have figured it out, I mean the clues were there but I just could not "See" them) Thankfully.. I found those fuses 1 week before I blew one.

The Battery Control Center is probably made by Intellitec and there is one for gas coaches as well as diesel coaches. You will need to replace the entire box and connect the circuits and battery cables up correctly. Send me your email address and I can send you a schematic of the BCC. With it and the coach manufacturer's schematic you should be able to properly wire the new equipment and hopefully no damage was done to components downstream, but you won't know till you get the above corrected first. Good luck and keep us posted.

the box is made by rv custom products
i am not sure about where the coach and battery wire were i may have reconnected the wire wrong if someone has a georgetown 2008 motorhome and would take picture of the wire connection that would take care of the wiring problem in ?

I have added the Intellitec Battery Control Center manuals http://www.irv2.com/forums/downloads.php?do=file&id=56 into the "Files" section of the website near the top of the page for all to have access to this information. If anyone needs any help let me know.

Verify that you have good battery power at the disconnect solenoid and that you are getting good activation signal from switch by the steps. If both of these are true, then you have a bad solenoid. If not, correct circuit(s) feeding solenoid. Let me know what you find or if you need help.
