2011 Holiday Rambler Augusta

I've been RV'ing most of my life with my parents having various motor homes as long as I could remember. They are up there in their years now so they don't go much anymore but my family uses it from time to time.
I joined here looking for any info & help I could find with taking care of the "little stuff" before I end up having to take it into one of the local RV Repair places.

Right now it appears to be a coach battery disconnect relay or switch that is my issue and I'm confident that with some guidance, it is something I can handle.

I am having trouble putting the coach batteries into storage mode. I found a bad fuse next to the Battery Disconnect Relay itself (not 1 of the 2 on the relay itself but next to it), replaced it and I was able to place the coach batteries in to storage mode at that point.
Now when they go to storage mode, the small LED light above the storage on/off switch flickers and if I turn on a light(s) inside the coach to verify the power is off, it/they flicker as well. I am disconnected from shore power and without the generator running either. If I switch out of storage the lights have full power, switch back to storage and I have the constant flicker in any light(s) that I turn on in the coach.
While this flicker is happening, I've checked the Battery Disconnect Relay underneath the coach behind the batteries and it is not making any noise at all.
Any ideas?

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

My guess would be that the battery disconnect relay is not opening completely! You can use a voltmeter and check for voltage with the storage switch turned off. Have fun and keep her between the ditches!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!
