Battery disconnect 1992 Bounder

Is there a way to bypass the battery disconnect S&R system? There's no power to anything. No start, & I already replaced the battery but pushing the disconnect switches over the door does nothing. I'd like to bypass it so I can start it and get it to a shop to get it looked at.

If its like our 93 Bounder, the relay is front to the left in a large box. Mine had a plexiglass cover. There are two large relays, one for the chassis and one for the house.
Try this: first hit the boost button and see if you get anything. Hold the boost button and try to start the engine.
If that does not work, take the cover off and tap the relay, then hit the button for the chassis battery.
If that doesn't work, you should be able to disconnect the wires from both side of the relay and connect them, if there are no other problems you should get juice.
Almost forgot, check all your fuses first, inside and out.

As it turns out, I put a jumper pack on both sets of batteries and disconnect switches workers. Solenoid clicked but the starter wouldn't turn. I tapped on the starter and vroooom. So both sets of batteries were dead, and apparently a dead spot on the starter. I'm going to have the starter replaced and see if there is a battery drain from something.

Bussman, those intellitec relays are a pain. . You can run a jumper from one post to the other, the large posts to bypass. I keep an extra relay and disconnect panel in the rv. Btw, I replaced the starter in my rv, cat 3208t.. it's not fun getting back in, very heavy. Get someone to help if you can , installing the bolts while supporting the starter is a pain in the butt. Good luck, chris
