Of course my front run bay is completely different than yours, so Iím no help. Maybe one day you will stumble across the answer.

Well, at least it's not broken.

If these "older" Coaches had a decent wiring diagram (like a high production automobile) it would show me where the wire terminates. But you have to work with what you have.

We have 07 cross country. When it sets for approx. 3 days the batteries run down.
I unhook all batteries from coach for 3 days. Hooked everything back up and it was fine. Will the big boy isolator run them down? I noticed their was spark when hooking that cable back up to the big boy isolator. Coach power was off when I hooked it back up..thanks

If you see a spark when connecting the large cables that means there is a demand for power on that cable (either Chassis side or House side, depending on which cable sparks). On Coaches with solar panel(s), the panel will feed batteries power even if the main battery disconnect switches are Open (turned Off), so you could see a spark on the Big Boy cable when removing/connecting a wire coming from the batteries while the solar panel is charging batteries.

It is also normal to have a draw on the House side when the Coach is off. Some components continue to draw power (the Inverter if it's On, the propane leak detector, etc.).

The Big Boy only connects the Chassis and House battery banks together. There is a little power draw from the Big Boy circuit (the small wire) that energizes the coil in the big Boy but nothing that would draw the batteries down in a couple of days.

Your Coach should have a main battery disconnect at the Batteries. Are you turning that switch Off when you park for extended times?

The Big Boy will whine. That is normal.
