Well , I am getting more confused. That is probably necessary.
Voltages on the terminals of the solenoid.
Large terminals read identical. 13.24 which makes sense because the rv is plugged in. Small terminals both read zero. The solenoid does seem to be engaged though.
What has me confused? To the right of the solenoid there is another solenoid which I believe is the coach disconnect. The control panel only has a coach disconnect switch, no chassis disconnect switch. That solenoid has two big terminals. One reads 13.24. The other reads 12.24. I need to look more carefully tomorrow but it seems to me that coach power is run to both sides of the day bird solenoid. It is engaged but the two systems are not connected. Does that make any sense?
On top of that you can probably see in the pics above they the word "chassis" has been crossed out on the bird solenoid.
Like I said, more confused.
