Is this a BIRD? He thinks he is...

Hello experts,

I tried to find my Bird on a 2009 Monaco Dynasty Yorkshire and couldn't find it.

The only thing I found was in the rear electrical panel (See Pic). It doesn't look like the Bird board I see on the market Yet it seems to act like one.

Any ideas? :banghead::banghead::banghead:

Doesn't look like mine.

Mine is a enclosed black box, about 3" X 2", mounted to the inside of the door of the rear run box.

Tks Ben,
I know, I'm wondering if Monaco didn't use a lot of old stuff in 2009. It seems to act like the Bird since it charges while driving and keeps my house batteries charged while connected. It gets me puzzled. I didn't see anything like that in the wiring diagram...

BIRD is a brand name but that looks like a bi-directional charging control board.

Come on guys help out this old dumb Grunt. What pray tell is a bird if it doesn't have wings and flies. Damn I am dumb. LOL

On the large diesel coaches Monaco uses an Intellitec control board with an Intellitec Big Boy isolation relay. This system duplicates the operation of a BIRD system.

@Dynasty09,

That board is called the Battery Control Center (BCC) board and performs multiple functions:

- It is your BIRD
- It manages the Salesman Switch relays
- It supports your Battery Boost function

While plugged into shore power (or generator), and your charger inverter/ converter charging your house batteries, put a multimeter to your chassis batteries and see if they are being charged as well.

Thanks everybody for the infos. Yes, it seems to do all kind of good I stuff.
Vito, I'm jealous for the clean look of your electrical panel.
Mine is hosting many spiders family....
Tks again

And when the engine is running and the alternator is charging the Chassis batteries, use a multimeter to make sure that the House batteries are being charged as well.
