No 12 volt power

Hello everyone,hope you are all well. I have no 12 volt power in my 2002 Winnebago 30 foot. turning battery switch on and off I can hear the solenoid clicking. Generator will start, but no lights or other 12 volt stuff. Everything works when plugged in. Any ideas? Class C.

You are taking about the Battery Disconnect Switch near the door thats clicking, right ?

Solenoid clicking but not making contact. Find it and test by jumping across large terminals.

Thank you. There are 2 solenoids. I checked across the top one and had 12 volts. Don,t think I could reach bottom one. I thought one might be for aux. starting button.

One is the isolation/charging solenoid, typically silver. It's also used as the Aux start. That's not your problem.

The disconnect is usually black. It will look like the one on the left, in this picture.

Take care testing in there, lots of battery power.Click image for larger version
