Battery disconnect solenoid

Hi all,

Can a house battery disconnect relay/solinoid be bypassed for the short term 8 days or so till able to have the part shipped to us? I don’t want to booger up anything else as I’m going alone. Trying to still complete our trip and not do more damage if it’s not the right may to temporarily patch our coach 12v disconnect. I’m almost positive that this will cure my house battery charging issue.

Thank again.....Mike��

Disconnect the coach batteries and put both cables on one side of disconnect relay and you'll be fine. Many others have had to do this.

Info on posting photos.

YES, TAKE BATTERY CABLE OFF ONE TERMINAL and put BOTH on same terminal; (Disconnect is (usually) only needed for storage)
