Chassis disconnect issue

2002 Coachmen Cross Country Elite

I let some friends borrow my RV and they plugged a phone charger into one of the 12v cigarette lighter outlets. After a few minutes, it stopped along with all of the chassis powered items (pwr mirrors, seat, windshield wipers, dash ac, jacks, etc). The 175 amp fuse looked ok although they put two brand new 175 amp fuses (chassis and coach) just to be sure. They also checked all fuses in the cluster under the radio and the ones near the battery and all are good. Any other suggestions?

I told him to switch the wires on the chassis disconnect switch to eliminate the switch being an issue. There are two solenoids back by where those 175 amp fuses are. I'm guessing that would be the next thing to replace? They are on the road and don't really have anything to test it with but they have tools to change it.

Sounds like the same problem you had back in 2015. What did you find back then?

That is what's confusing me... In 2015 it was one of the 175 amp fuses. Changed it out and everything worked perfect for the next 3 years.

Anyone have a suggestion? I contacted Freightliner although the only thing they sent was a schematic which is way over my head.
