Coach Power Shut Down

Had a wounderful time at KOA in Mt Pleasant, SC last week. We came back to our diesel pusher after supper and, no lights, no nothing. Don't know why but I pressed the switch cuts the batterys off from the coach and power back on for about 30 min. Once again and same result. Did some reading and went to the inverter and unplugged the wire that looks like a telephone wire for about 10 seconds and power back on this time for an hour and a half. It was late so went to bed. We're back home now. Any thoughts on this before I go any further?

Hello and We are glad to have you join us here and we look forward to reading of your adventures and experiences. I am sure you will enjoy our website and forums. Good luck, stay safe and keep us posted.
Charge the house battery bank and make certain that the disconnect switch is on. Turn on some light and in about 30 minutes check the charging voltage from the inverter/charger. Let us know what you find.

You might get more help if you include the make/model/year of your MH.

Good luck!

What Make/Model/Year is your coach, it will help for others to offer advice.

If plugged in does the 120 volt circuits work. Some of the circuits should not be wired through the inverter, do the AC units work?

If you do have a "salesman" switch they are known to go bad, a number of people just bypass the switch. You should be able to check voltage across the solenoid to determine if it is bad.

Coach power shut down

Thanks so much for the responses and the "pic". We were plugged in to shore power. And we were good Sat, Sun, and most of the day Monday. I did notice that after I unplugged and plugged in the telephone looking wire that the charging actually escalated from one type charge to a float charge. So, I thought I might be on to something until about an hour later the power shut down again. I'm close now to getting it home from the storage facility in a few more days. Then I can set up a 50 amp service. So, it will be a few weeks probably before I can get back to this. Thanks again for all the information.
