Glad you found it. That is a typical “Bosh type” relay. Very common. We bought them by the sack full in our business. It appears the original one was installed properly with close attention to the white ground wire and connection. However, over time these connections get corrosion or rust behind them and can cause all kinds of grief as you have found out. The mere act of replacing the relay could temporarily fix an intermittent due to exercising the mounting screw. Once repaired you can shoot paint over it.

I like to use a dremel tool with a barrel sanding disk to clean places like this. If you find other relays using the same grounding method I highly recommend you take time to clean those up. Exercise the connections on the relay as well because those too can build up resistance.

Much needed update

The rig started having the same issue once again shortly after posting the last update. After replacing battery cables, tracing cables, tightening cables, etc. We finally discovered the issue and repaired it.

The Battery Control Center board was burnt out from the initial electrical surge from not having house batteries in during first trip. I found a replacement board, brand-new from Leisure Time Distributing. The board I had to replace was:
INTELLITEC BOARD FOR BCC 73-00635-000. Installation was incredibly easy, though time consuming. It took maybe a total of 20 minutes, and most of that was reassembling everything.

Thank you all once again for the tremendous help with this issue! All of your suggestions help lead us to the right problem.

Hope everyone is well!
