Dodge 440 electrical issue (engine just dies starter clicks) Stephen Roman 5-17-16  

My RV seems to run just fine but then it just dies and won't turn over. This is the second time I've taken the kids to the beach (just a 15 mile trip) and both times its either just completely shut off while driving, or not started back up after shutting it off. I don't know if its a heat thing but it seems to be electric related. If I go under the hood I either get a starter click click click sound (battery is a new fully charged Optima) or absolutely nothing. Starter has been replaced but problem persists, if I jiggle the wires by the battery I can get it to make the click click click sound could it be one of the electrical things mounted on the fender by the battery that is causing this? Help!!!

Not sure its related but the RV seems to also be missing a little like its running out of fuel but not sure if this is another electrical symptom.

So you have a bad battery cable conection.

Get a freind who knows how to track this kind of problem to help you.

But basically a corroded cable to cable end or cable end to bolt corrosion problem.
