Battery Cutoff Solenoid Wiring

Can some one with a 2002 Monaco Windsor tell me which wires got to the top terminal and which wires go to the bottom terminal of the battery cutoff selonoid. I just replaced the solenoid and forgot to document that before hand.

Many of our rigs have this solenoid mounted (per the drawing) such that all terminals are pointed upward.

Maybe this could help:
If you're asking about the connections to the two main (large) terminals, the answer is that it doesn't matter. BTW, I'm assuming you're describing the battery isolation solenoid.

Battery Cutofff Solenoid Wiring

No, I am not talking about the battery isolation solenoid. I am talking about the solenoid that is activated by the battery cut off switch at the entrance door. The solenoid is located in the electrical compartment at the rear of the coach passenger side behind the batteries.

You mean the Salesman Switch.

Ah... The infamous "Salesman" switch.

Many of us have bypassed this solenoid. They fail after 3 or 4 years with great regularity.

Rex provided pictures of one such bypass. Perhaps the color of wiring you see there may match your installation as well.

Battery Cutoff Solenoid Wiring

We are getting closer, but this does not look like the 2002 Windsor. If anyone has a Windsor, maybe a photo of it will help. I have the big red wire from the inverter fuse going to the bottom terminal and all other wires (a big red, a small red and a fairly big black one) going to the top terminal. Does that sound right??

Hmmmm, the salesman switch on my knigt goes to a solenoid on the fuse board in the front drivers side bay....


The power cutoff switch inside the front door is referred to as the salemans switch. It turns off all the lighting, but not the fridge or water pump or anything important.
