Motor coach not shutting off with toad

I am helping a friend with a 2006 beaver Monterey. When the toad is hooked up the motor will not shut off. If I pull the charge fuse in the toad it works fine. It would seem that the toad is supplying power back to the coach
to a solenoid that I cannot seem to locate. It appears to be factory wiring to the rear plug.

It must be wired to the run side of the key switch. The toad battery will back feed and keep it running.

2 fixs, 1 ) move wire to accessory side of key switch. ( still may keep things on, in the MH )

2 ) place a 20 to 30 amp rated diodo in the charge line to block the back feed. ( probably an easy fix ).
