Electrical connections

I have a couple questions about our 2003 Windson by Forest River. There is apparently no connection to the ambient temperature sensor. The display just shows a couple dashed lines. I have a new sensor but have not found where it is connected. Im guessing some work was done on the front end some time ago and the original sensor was removed. If anyone has any ideas, I would appreciate your input.

Second question is in regards to the Aux start switch. Mine does not trigger the solenoid that links the batteries together. I can check continuity from the switch to the solenoid but there is no source voltage available at the switch. Does anyone know where the power is supposed to come from[B]. Again, any thoughts would be appreciated...what I wouldn't give for a wiring diagram.

Welcome to the forum!

Check your fuses coming from your chassis battery, and it will probably be an in-line fuse, or it may be tapped off of the chassis fuse box.

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

I think that most aux start solenoids are activated by grounding one terminal. Use a voltmeter to see if there is a constant positive 12VDC to one side of the coil. If so, momentarily ground the other terminal to see it it activates.

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!
