Main & Aux Disconnect not working

Hi everybody, attempting some maintenance on my 2003 Four Winds Hurricane. The main and aux switch pilot lights are staying on all the time. When I press the momentary switches nothing happens. I thought the switches were defective, but they are fine. They are performing no disconnection what so ever. I assume they wire to a relay or contactor somewheres, but where?
Appreciate any input.

If you have a workhorse chassis, check under your hood. Drivers side, look for a black box that has a sticker that says "RV custom products". Take the cover off and under the circuit board are the aux and disconnect relays. Follow your chassis battery positive cable, one positive wire goes to the starter and one positive wire goes to your Battery control center "BCC".

I just got back from taking my hurricane to the local rv dlr for the same thing. As long as it is plugged into shore power the lights will not go off. He showed me that this is the way it was designed to operate. On battery only they function perfectly.

The MH has the Ford Triton Chassis and the pilot lights stay on with or without shore power. They don't disconnect the coach or engine battery when engaging them.
