Battery disconnect

Have an 89 Triple E Regency. Trying to figure out if the battery disconnect panel is working. The indicator lights do not seem to be working.

From the west coast .

Do you have any indication from the disconnect control as to the brand , of the control ?

Intellitec , systems are perhaps the most common , so here's some info on that system.

Just bought the rig so I have a lot to learn about it and any mods that have been done in its 30+ years.

I have a 1998 national tradewinds freightliner and need to know how to connect the batteries. Put new batteries in and it will start but my steps and levelers won't work. I must have it hooked up wrong.

If you just bought your vintage RV, spending some time looking at the operator's manual would be very important for you to familiarize your self with everything. If you have no owners / operators manual I would search for one online, you will definitely need one.
If it will start and run you must have the batteries in correctly, but make sure you are very ​careful about proper connection of battery terminals, any guesswork or mistakes about this could cause expensive damage or potential injuries..
​If your RV starts and runs but your steps will not operate, check what position the bypass switch for your steps is in.. (on or off ?) with engine idling and (switch on) steps should come out when you open the door. If nothing then refer to troubleshooting chart in your manual.
Levelers usually require the parking brake is set before they will operate. the sending unit which tells the leveler system whether parking brake is engaged might be faulty or bad connection (again, refer to the manual for trouble shooting procedure)
If your RV has been sitting idle for awhile, many issues may arise, so there might be quite a few items you will need to sort out.. Hope this helps you out, Good Luck
