Hello TimmyB, I had similar problems with my 2016 Vegas 25.2. After having to charge batteries when ever I went to the coach I did what some of the fellas on here said to do. I installed a battery disconnect on the coach and one on the chassis batteries. When I replaced the chassis battery I went through the inside top passenger side. The desk removes with screws in the side and under the little mats. Now after I removed the desk there was nothing but duct tape filling a huge hole. When I put it back I cut a piece of sheet metal with foam insulation tape around the edges and screwed it down. You said it best Off should mean Off!

Yes, I have a feeling I'll have to add the disconnect switches sooner rather than later. Luckily, my batteries have held their charge after I brought them back up, which was surprising. I have a service appointment to get a couple of body issues fixed on Monday, so I will discuss with them what their thoughts/suggestions might be, as well.

Thanks for the feedback!

I'm not against it, I just can't justify it. The rv lives inside on shore power.

Not to highJack the post but...... Where did you come up with $7000?

My Outlaw 29H was prewired and I spent about $700 for two 160W flexible panels, a MPPT charge controller and some connectors.

It was well worth it. I never have to plug into shore power to keep batteries charged. The MPPT Charge Controller even has an Equalization Mode. I also have a Trik-L-Start installed that maintains the chassis battery from the house batteries so the solar keeps everything charged.

I replaced the stock Inverter with a Xantrex Freedom Xi 2000 and can run the 5000BTU air conditioner in the garage during the day off the batteries or the fridge when I have some decent sun..... and that is with the two stock house batteries. The solar keeps up very well.

Electric issues

May not be your problem but I had key word here had a 2019 challenger. Same issues along with furnace and ac coming on at same time all by themselves. Sliders coming in and out lights coming on and going out. All this on our third trip out. Thor called me and said the temporary permanent fix was pull the 30 amp fuse to the slide outs. And unplug the mirror module. Next day I traded for a Coachman. Didnít spend all that money to get on my knees and pull a fuse every time I parked my coach.

If you have a soleniod that the use/ store switch runs to it has probably gone bad. You can get at an auto parts store and replace yourself.
