|'91 Pace Arrow Battery Disconnect Switch||William Schell||4-6-04|
|I bought my '91 Pace Arrow about 3 years ago, and have had battery problems ever since. The batteries go dead after it sets for several weeks or months, even when I start it up every 2 or 3 weeks. The Battery Disconnect Switches I read are to use to disconnect the batteries in my case of not using RV for a period of time, but the switches just rock back to the center and don't lock in the on or off position. Are they supposed to lock in on or off? Where can I get new switches to replace they, so I can turn the house off so they will not drain the batteries when I'm ready to go somewhere. I always keep the RV plugged into house power, for which I thought it would keep the batteries charged up, but it doesn't. Isn't this supposed to happen when you have house power connected to the RV, so as to not drain the batteries? Thanks|

|Wiliam...I have a 90 model pace arrow and the battery disconnect switches rock back to the center. They are connected to a relay. One way to check if they are working is to press the main disconnect switch to off and then see if the engine will turn over. My engine will not start with the main disconnected. Hope this helps some.|

|The switch is working as it should.|
When you push the switch you should hear a clicking sound. If you don't hear this sound the solenoids are probably bad.
On class A they are usually located on the firewall hidden under a plastic cover.
Usually the side where the batteries are located. In my case the left side of the firewall.
Under this cover you will probably find the solenoids and some circuit breakers. Good to know where these are any way. As one of the breakers may be for your slideout.
At this site you can see what they look like and what to replace:http://www.intellitecsve.com/
Hope this helps.

|The solenoid for your house circuits is located under the hood to the left fairly high up on the firewall! The solenoid for the engine is also on the left but is down almost in line with your left headlight also on the firewall. Check that all connections are tight!Solenoids will click when the disconnect switches are toggled on or off!|
Usually when batteries are on their last legs they won't take,or hold a charge. You may also have a defective convertor/charger. Try charging them with a decent quality battery charger while disconnected from the MH

|I JUST BOUGHT A 1991 PACE ARROW. MY MOTORHOME WOULD NOT START ONE DAY, BUT I COULD HEAR THE SOLENOID CLICK. I CHECKED THE SOLENOID WITH MY VOLT METER ACROSS THE TWO BIG POSTS ON EACH SIDE AND HAD A MAJOR VOLTAGE DROP OF 10 VOLTS. IT SHOULD BE LESS THAN.5V ANYWAYS ITS BEHIND THE PANEL ON DRS. SIDE UNDERHOOD. I WAS ABLE TO TAKE RELAY APART AND CLEAN BRASS CONTACTS WITH WIRE WHEEL. NOW THE MOTORHOME ENGINE CRANKS OVER FASTER THAN EVER.|
