Cellinoid Donna 12-26-02  
We cannot find the cellinoid on our 2000 Four Winds Hurricane, and Four Winds over the phone cannot help us locate it...

Does anyone know where we can find it?
Re: Cellinoid Joe 12-26-02  
Are you referring to a "Solenoid?" Anyway, which one are you looking for? What type chassis do you have? What power train?
Re: Cellinoid Donna 12-26-02  
No... Thor said it was a Cellinoid... and they had us looking in about 8 places for where it might be... The guy didn't seem to be an expert on his own product.. Hed asked us to reset the cellinoid when we found it... He said it looked like a little black shoebox

It is a Chevy Class A... only has 6,000 miles on it in 3 years.. but the auxillary batteries will not hold a charge and must be plugged into house power, or have the engine or generator running. They already replaced the modulator about 7 months ago.. and we have only taken it out for 2 weeks since.

Also it has a Workhorse chassis...

The thing you are looking for is a "Solenoid". Anyway you should be able to find a box under your hood that says "BCC" on it That is your battery control center. There are two solenoids in there and one probably is bad. Does your green indicator light illuminate when you flip the battery disconnect switch by the door? Is it possible the switch is bad? You may also have a battery isolator on your motorhome. These can go bad and cause your coach battery not to charge off the engine.

Hi Donna,
I have a 31 foot Class A, the Battery Disconnect Soleniod on mine is right next to the battery's, the battery's hook right to it. They do it that way so they don't have to run those big battery cables all over the place. When you switch from (Store) to (Use) do you hear it click ? If so, it should be working. If not, chech the Switch it self, it could be burned out, or not getting power to it. Have you had the battery's Load Tested?, each one Tested separately? If just One battery has a Bad Cell, it will draw down the remaining battery's. A very simply way to do a Battery Drain Test is to, turn everything off, place the Battery Disconnect switch to (Store). Now, remove one of the Battery Cables from the battery, use a 12 volt Test Light, hook one end of the test light to the disconnected battery cable, and the other end to where you disconnected the cable from. IF NO Drain, the test light will be OFF. If their is a Battery Drain, the Test Light will be ON.
