Starter Solenoid

I've been having problems starting my 1995 Coachman leprechaun for a while, clicking from solenoid. But it always started up till when we were camping 2 weeks ago I got the last start out it when we were ready to leave the campground. So on the way home I ran into the auto parts store and bought a starter for a ford 460 figuring it would work. Well as I found out, and as many of you know its not the same thing.
The clicking noise I heard came from what I thought was a plain old starting solenoid, but turned out to be the Itellitec ACE BD RELAY could not read the number. I did replace the fuses and still the same problems. Also the last few times after parking the MH for a week or so the battery has run down.
Is this all related ? Would replacing this relay cure these problems ? or do I need to get into this further ? more questions. I found this switch on e-bay part #01-00055-000,it looks like my switch, does it sound like correct # ?
Also it is called a disconnect switch, I don't have any switch in cab. Is it automatic? or should I have some kind of manual switch to turn on and off?

Thanks for help

Hi Dave
What chassis do you have? Our 1995 f53 chassis solenoid pn is 634-1241-212 it's a pain to get to, it's on the left side of the engine accessable from the top. Just had the same problem last week but ended up being a loose wire on the solenoid. I have a spare that was left by the previous owner that's where the nbr came from.
Good luck.
