They are only designed for a momentary electric signal from the switch.
You probably need a new latching solenoid.
I only started taping the switch when it wouldnít hold the light on. Guess I knew the solenoid before then somehow.
How do I determine what type of solenoid I need and where is it located?
Also - the solenoid on the engine might be shot too. For me to get the light to stay on someone needs to hold the switch down, I start the rv then hold the ignition key in for 30 seconds. Then shut the rv down. At that point the chassis electrical power light will stay on.
