2014 Thor Outlaw Toyhauler Chassis Battery Drain

Have a 2014 Thor Outlaw Toyhauler. The chassis battery is dead after about a week. New battery. RV Custom Products Battery Control Center under the hood. Emergency Start works fine. House batteries and disconnect fine. Any suggestions? Thor said Isolator Charge Solenoid may be bad. If it is bad, i should get dash lights correct?

Hi IIICrows, I have a 2016 Outlaw with a similar issue (chassis battery dies after about a week) and I've not been able to determine the issue, did you get your Isolator Charge Solenoid replaced?? I purchased a cheap solar charger from Amazon which plugs into the cigarette lighter socket and that seems to help but it is a bit frustrating.

We traded in a class A. We are not original owners. What function is the Isolator Charge Solenoid? Thanks for the reply.

The Isolator Charge Solenoid is supposed to separate the chassis batteries from the house batteries when the motor is off, if it has an issues, I guess it could cause an issue with one or the other getting drained. I don't think this is an issue with my RV. My cheapo solar charger seems to be maintaining the chassis battery, and it has started without an issue the last few times. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
