Wiring Problem 2005 Monaco Executive

I just brought my coach out of storage and was getting ready to leave for warmer climates. I noticed that my Radio quit, not an issue that would stop me from leaving, but I checked some other things and find that almost every electrical item in the cockpit does not work. Electric blinds ceiling lights cigarette (if they are still called that) lighter plugs. I contacted an acquaintance from ARG who says that I have lost power to one complete board that feeds the front of the coach. He said this could be verified by noting which circuit boards had not lights. I discover that all the circuit boards have lights, and there are no fuses burned out.
Anybody have any ideas???

Did you by chance bump the salesman switch in the entry way?

Wiring Problem 2005 Monaco Executive

I text my friend Brian (the genius) and he resolved the problem:
He had me check the outside bay below the driverís seat. The check was to see if all the circuit board lit up. We discovered that the two at the bottom were dark. There are 4 cable posts on the front wall of that compartment. The top two posts are chassis power and the two lower ones are house power. We had to remove one of the lower posts and move it to the other lower post. We moved the front lower cable to the rear lower post and then put the cable that was on the rear on the top. So, when we get it repaired we need to move the inside cable to the front post and put the outside cable on the rear post.
The problem was Bad house disconnect electric solenoid[DM1] . There are two solenoids (one powering each of those posts in the front compartment). These solenoids are in the engine compartment on the passengerís side right behind the tail light. It is in a large black box. I will order the solenoids from ARG. Brian says there is a breaker in that box as well but we could not find it.

Thanks Randy, sorry I forgot to mention that was the first thing that Brian asked me to do was cycle that switch.
These things are not for the faint of heart, every time I turn around there is something new to learn. Every lesson costs a lot either in time or money.

Have a great day
