THOR #2842

Hi folks, I'm Gary. Just bought a 2004 Mandalay 40B with 20,000 miles. Bank repo so it's been sitting. Newer batteries in curbside rear.Someone has been monkeying with it. Engine cranks even with battery switch off. Sure could use a picture or diagram of bulkhead showing isolator/ disconnect connections. Thx.

You can obtain literature on your coach at

Document Archive Thor Motor Coach

If you have a problem click on clear filters and then the Mandalay should appear in the model drop down.

Also, to the best of my knowledge, the battery switch only disconnects the coach batteries and does not disconnect the chassis battery so one would hope the engine would still crank.

Thanks Dave but I already tried the archive. It pictures the battery compartment on the driver side, same wrong picture as my printed owners manual. Also I was referring to the cranking battery master switch not the 12v disconnect
