Hello
I have a 05 terra 32s on the workhorse chassis. My problem is after coming back from my last trip I went to disconnect the batteries using the disconnect switches and they didn't do anything. Normally I can hear them switch on and off, but no sound and change in power. Everthing else seems to be working ok.

Check for a blown fuse or loose connection in the BCC (Battery Box) under the hood. Usually mounted on the firewall on the drivers side. The two large solenoids you will see are the disconnects. I don't know for sure but I wouldn't be surprised if there are fuses in the circuitry.

You might also, carefully, remove the disconnect switch from the wall and check the connectors for being tight. I've found connectors loose where they press onto the pins on the switches in the past.

I agree with wa0mqe a blown fuse. That is the problem I had with mine. There is a small, I think 7.5amp fuse that is in the BCC that is the problem.

It is the fuse, opened the battery control box and the 5 amp fuse is blown. Problem is, I replace it and it blows again. So I guess this is a warranty issue and will be taking it to the dealer. Thanks for your help

Yes I agree, any electrical problem(s) on something new should go directly to your dealer.
Do not try moving up from a 5 amp fuse to get by and use something bigger unless the owners manual says 10, 15 or 20 amp fuse is what should be there in the first place.

Mike.
