Remote Battery Disconnects Re-Engaging by themself

I have a 2004 Fleetwood Providence and this is the second time this has happened. I have been gone for a month due to my job and the motorhome is parked inside the garage. I made sure I pressed the remote disconnect switches to off for the coach and chasis batteries as well as turning off the inverter. What would cause the remote disconnect switches to re-engage on there own. Yesterday when I went into the motorhome they (chasis and coach batteries) were on. This makes no sense to me what would cause this.

Is it plugged in to shore power ?? Although ours is a different brand, I keep it plugged in to 20A to keep the batteries charged, but it will activate the dissconnect switches when you plug it in....

No. I have no power on it while in storage. I left this morning for a couple weeks so I will see if they reconnect again. I double verified they were disconnected b4 I left.

Those relays are 12v powered. I wonder if the battery voltage drops to the point where the relay is no longer held in the open position?

I will have to do some research but I would think they would be powered closed (circuit closed) and not powered open. That way if power dies the circuits are still open and. I may have to call Fleetwood to get that system info.

Why not see who makes the battery disconnect switch? On my unit, it is made by Intellitec.

gatorcq is on the right path. After accumulating all the pertinent numbers, call the mfr tech line and put the problem into their lap. They have a whole lot more experience with the product than the "guy on the street."

I would definitely do that but I am away from the motorhome for work for the next couple weeks so I will have to call Fleetwood to see who the manufacturer/model is of the disconnect switches in order to do some more research.
