It is, indeed, a continuous duty relay, but is also commonly available from NAPA and other parts houses.
Yes, commonly used on motorhomes. Your best bet AND price is finding on-line. I'll dig up my URL where I purchesed mine.

Yes. I attached the yellow wire to the post on the can. The wire is connected on the back side of the circuit board. Just wondering how to test switch.

Have someone press the AUX start switch While your back at that solenoid. You should hear it CLUNK.

When my charging relay went bad went to fleetwood dealer and they said relay was no longer made , went to a lot of auto parts store, they all said that they couldn't find it. I believe I was in Las Vegas and went to Napa they had 10 in stock and they said it was a commonly used relay. If you put 12v on the relay It should click , if you check both buss bars should read the same voltage with 12v on the relay if not the relay is bad.

Ok everyone...thank you very much for your help. Now, I discovered a new issue. I wanted to check my AUX switch. I disconnected shore power, disengaged both battery switches above my door and heard the "click" as if I was going to store for the winter. I engaged the ignition key and my Bounder started! I have lights on everywhere with both switches turned off and shore power disconnected.

I assume that is not correct. Any advice?

Actually it IS correct. RV-CP made that change (added circuitry to turn on both batteries when the Ignition is turned ON) on Release Level D of CB-115.

Your rev. level is well above that, probably M or N. Check it.

Read the first page of that document I sent you in my first reply. Also, that document gives you the procedures for testing all the functions of the BCC.

If you change the relay be careful and put a drop cloth down , under you . If you drop something it will get lost without it. There used to be a video about changing the relay out .

Wow Old Bounder...you are the greatest! I did not even think that was correct. I review your diagrams and test the functions of the BBC. Thanks!

No, not great, I've just been around the block a few times with Fleetwood Battery Control Centers.

Let me know if I can be of further help.
