'90 Pace Arrow Battery Switches? Jim 8-6-02  
I bought a used 1990 Pace Arrow and I am not sure of the correct operation of the battery swiches above the exit door. How should they be used? When should they be off or on? What are they really for? Nothing in the book explains this.

I know that I have left the "Cab" battery in the ON position in the past and had it run my starting battery down. I now always turn that one off when I am parked.

Thanks for any info to enlighten me on this!

I'm looking for driver's side electric window switch for an 1985 Pace Arrow, also a service manaual for Chev 454 engine and P30 chassis if such a thing exists.

The Switches you are talking about are Battery disconnect switches. They will disconnect the battery(s) from the circuits they are for. Turn them off when in storage and on when you want to go!

Thanks for the reply Wiz!

That much I had figured out, but thought that there might be more to them. For example when I am plugged into shore power either while it is sitting at home or in a campground for a while, should I leave the one to the engine on or off? Will it matter? If on can it drain the batteries? Whne on is it supposed to allow charging of the battery? Should that one only be on while I am driving and off the rest of the time? I understand the basic operation, but I am not sure about the rest.

Thanks again!

Sorry I did not get back to you right away. First, you can drain the battery with the chassis battery switch on; if on for a long period of time or you use things like dash radio, cigarette lighter a lot. I don't think your rig is set up to charge the chassis battery from shore power. You can check this by testing the voltage at the battery while plugged in (if charging should be around 13.8 volts). On the other hand the engine altenator should gharge both the house and chassis batteries through an isolator (connects both for charging but isolates them so you won't drain it when using the house batteries with engine off. I hope this answers your questions but if not let me know.
