Solenoid

Would anyone out there be able to tell me where the pump relay control wire goes on the selonid. If anyone has a picture I would very much like to see it or if there is a diagram.

Thank you for your time............Darrel

Do you need a solenoid to charge the house bank while you are driving?

Simple answer, run a cable from the chassis battery + post to the solenoid then from the solenoid to the + post on one of the house batteries. Run a wire from one of the fuses in the fuse block that has power when the engine is running to the small terminal on the solenoid.

That last post would combine the batteries when ever the key was on. That may not be a good thing if the house batteries are flat at the time. My coach picks up a 6 volt signal from the alternator after the engine has started, then combines the two banks. Better plan all around. Joe

The solenoid will have 2 large posts, 1 for chassis batt and 1 for the coach. If the solenoid has 2 small control posts, 1 will come from the alternator circuit and another from the manual AUX Boost switch on the dash.

Of all the solenoids I have worked with that had two control post, one was positive and one was negative. If they just had one than the steel case was grounded.

The purpose of tapping into a feed that is only live when the key is on is to prevent the starting battery from being drained. Generally the only time the key is on is when the engine is running. I've had no problems with this set up.....

Welcome Darrel to irv2.
Take a look at this post should help you install a Bird System in your coach.

So what happens if your house batteries are dead and you turn the key on? The dead bank could pull down your starting bank to where it won't turn over. I would rather put the solenoid on a separate switch and manually combine when I deemed it was necessary. Joe

BIRD systems typically auto-connect when the alternator output voltage reaches 13.3VDC and auto-disconnect when voltage drops to less than 12VDC, JM2...
