Battery connect not working

Hello,
Newbie here still having issues. Ok 2000 National Tradewinds 7371. Took it out 1st time last friday. All fine at campsite with power all night and morning. Around noon heard a click and all powet went off. Could not get the batteries to connect with the button on the passanger side. Came on home because I had to work. After driving 2hrs battery connect still would not come on. No idea what happened..... Anyone have a clue or have this happen? I was completely plugged up at campsite with surge protector attached.

Probably failed house battery disconnect switch or the fuse that is in the house battery line.

It is possible if you have a 12v breaker panel that the main connection to it failed, but usually the house battery fuse goes first.

I'm slightly confused. You were plugged into shore power at the campsite? You said 'all power went off.' Did you lose AC as well as DC power? What voltage did your coach batteries have when you lost power?

Yes was plugged up to post at campsite with surge protector. Heard a click sound and then everything went off. Looked at the battery disconnect switch light and it was off. Turned the button on and off and the light never came back on showing battery power. I do not know what the voltage on the coach batteries was before it went out. I do know the panel showed the batteries full or charged before I went to bed the night before. Ac, fridge and outlets working before the click and outage the next morning. Lord i have to find the fuse box. I have plenty of fuses. What would cause this? Any idea? I was actually unplugging things and putting electronics away.

Well I had it looled at and the technician said the solinoid is fine. Says he by passed it. He thinks it ia the computer board. I am trying to figure out what would have caused the computer board to go out? I was not running a crazy amount of power and in fact I was unplugging things. Any help with this is appreciated.

You should give RV Custom Products a call and discuss your problem with them. They are the manufacturer of the BCC.

I had a similar situation. I was plugged into a 50 amp from my shop, doing some work on the interior of my 2000 Sea Breeze. I was running both A/C units and the refer all day. Everything worked like it should. Shut it down for the night. left the refer running. Next morning when I turned on the A/C the compressors came on, but no air coming out of the ducts. I noticed all my 12volt stuff was weak or not working at all. What I figured was that on the previous day, was that, the breaker for the converter tripped, so the house batteries weren't charging. I'm not positive ( I never broke out the wiring diagrams ) but I think the blowers on the A/C units run on 12V. So by running them and all the other 12V all day, I just ran the batteries low. So even though the couch was pugged into shore power, the batteries weren't charging. Went to the breaker box in the bedroom, flipped the breaker back on. Left it all day. Next morning everything was back to normal. Ray

The A/C blower is 120V not 12V.

Power

Check your battery connections first. I had the same problem and it was a poor terminal connection. Cleaned them and the batteries began charging and all was well. I love the no cost solutions....

Start w/ battery, connections and charge status (voltage, looking for 12.0vdc to 12.6vdc= 50%-100% charged?. THEN status of the Battery SWITCH or SOLENOID? FUSES TO COIL ON THAT SOLENOID?
